Taking the ferry from Vancouver to Salt Spring Island on Thursday, we passed through the Southern Gulf Islands, looking very like the Stockholm archipelago but for the distant mountains of the Olympic National Park in Washington state in the background.

I asked a crew member if we were likely to see any orcas, sadly it was the wrong season but she said there were 3 pods in the straits and they often followed the ferry in the summer. It was a 3 hour crossing so we decided to sing our ferry song live on the deck.
