I lived in Victoria for over a year before I ever rode the ferry between Vancouver Island and Tsawwassen (ignoring the time I was in BC with my family about 16 years ago, that is). I always just flew in and out of Victoria directly. The ferry is awesome and the view is incredible, navigating through all those little islands. Last time I rode the ferry I snapped this shot. It's possibly the best picture I've taken on that trip.
