Ken and I are planning to spend the day in a ferry line up. Well, it wasnâ€™t really the plan, but we all know plans change.
We are heading to Vancouver Island for the weekend. Weâ€™ve rented a float house and plan to enjoy some time exploring a new area. Of course being us, the only thing we saw on the calendar was that it was MY birthday weekend and didnâ€™t take into consideration that it is also a Canadian holiday.
Canadian holidays translate into super long ferry line ups and overloaded boats and big crowds. We are going anyway. We have books to read, things to talk about, and as Ken likes to say about traffic and other crowded events, â€œWeâ€™ll just get in line and be part of it.â€
FYI, most of our â€œspecialâ€ days are also Canadian holidays and long weekend celebrations, so we should be used to it.
My birthday is on Victoria Day
Kenâ€™s birthday is on BC Day
Our wedding anniversary is on Canada Day
And Christmas is on Christmas day, but that isnâ€™t as special to us.
