Canada-PNW Day 7, Seattle to Vancouver
July 11, 2010
We did not rush to get out of bed today, knowing our ride would be a
leisurely 175 miles through the back roads and along the bay up into
Canada. The temperature was much cooler than yesterday, and made for
comfortable riding, and waiting at the border crossing. We saw an eagle
landing in a field very close to the road. My choice of roads up to the
border turned out OK. Highway 14 along the bay just south of Bellingham was
just spectacular. It was a slow-going ride on very good pavement with lots
of forest and tight turns, and views of the bay from time to time. Just
awesome… We worked our way through one of the roughest-looking
neighborhoods in Vancouver, and over to the Blue Horizon Hotel on Robson
St. Very interesting people walking the sidewalks. We just walked and
watched, and had dinner on the waterfront with the float planes and yachts.
Tomorrow – the ferry over to Victoria on Vancouver Island.
