Off to Powell River

Spent a day and a half driving to Powell River up the Sunshine Coast highway or 101 as it is known.  Such a beautiful drive, but very steep hills and sharp corners keep you on your toes.  Caught the Earls Cove ferry (see photo) over to Saltery Bay and spent the night there.  In the morning, I got up early and drove the last 27 km to Powell River and unloaded my magnesium chloride into the Capilano Highways Yard tanks.  The pump gave me some grief but made it work and got the job done.  Headed back to Saltery Bay to catch the ferry back to Earls Cove and then drive back to Langdale to catch another ferry to Horseshoe Bay and onto Coquitlam to load again for Pemberton.

Took some photos while onboard the Saltery Bay ferry using my sunglasses as a polarizing filter to offset the washed out look from the midday sun.  One was of the Comox Glacier on Vancouver Island that I could see off in the distance.  The others were of Skookumchuck Narrows (I believe) and the mountains in the background.  If you look closely to the left of the image you will see a waterfall cascading off the mountain side.  I didn’t zoom in on it because the light wasn’t as I would have liked it.  Bye for now.
