The Boat: Seattle to Victoria
I feel a bit bad for visitors to Seattle. There is not enough time to do everything. A great example is that boat that goes from Seattle to Victoria. http://www.clippervacations.com/seattle-victoria-ferry/ When you live in Seattle, you can plan and use one of the 365 days to get on the boat and travel in style. My church group decided to take the trip to visit another church in Victoria. We soon gathered in a section and I had my trusty guitar and began to play and we all sang together knowing that the trip would take about 4 hours. After awhile, it was time to take a break. I was walking around the boat and was trying to play the harmonika I had brought along. A girl who claimed to be from New York gave me some instruction and I have been able to play ever since. (I was at a Karaoke singing and pulled out my harmonika, some of the audience thought it was part of the background music!! Cool!!) Anyway, we arrived and we had an activity which was a bit of a hike from our sleeping quarters. We were walking along the street, when we were offerred a ride by the police who had their "paddy wagon." (One of the few stories where being picked up by the police has a happy ending!!) We had a nice time at the church service and then we were ready to boat back to Seattle. Of course, there was some more guitar playing. What were my favorite songs? Amazing Grace, He's every thing to me, Pass it on, Make a joyful noise, Make me a fisher a men, etc!!! Fortunately, when I visit Seattle now, I don't worry about the boat trip since I have done that and have the T-Shirt.
