Woooo! Making my way home from Vancouver Island after conducting a couple of training sessions with junior officers.
That means making, what is normally, a pretty routine 1 1/2 hour ferry trip through the Gulf Islands and across the Strait of Georgia on BC Ferries. The pictures in the link depict a nice sunny day and nice calm waters.
It didn't look like that at all today. All I can say is that I'm glad I wasn't the captain of that 9000 ton ship today. That was one hairy approach to the mainland berth.
Add torrential rain and you've got the west coast today.
