|Ken, Ann, Bill and the berries|
We say our good-byes to our wonderful hosts, Bill and Ann, and then Ken, Wendy and I head to the ferry. We have an uneventful sailing and when we get to Sidney decide to hit the Safeway for Starbucks coffee and food. In my case that was a pannini sandwich of ham and swiss.
Ken and Wendy are going to Victoria and stay with Ken's mom for a few days and recuperate from their trip where Ken hauled a trailer with over 60 lbs of gear including climbing ropes and hardware for a little expedition they did. I am going to meet my next hosts, John and Kumiko who live about 10 miles from the ferry.
John and Kumiko have a beautiful home in the hills with unbelievable views. John and I go for about 4 mile hike where he "takes it easy" since he is recovering from shoulder surgery. For someone 13 years older than me I could not believe how good a shape he was in and I was breathing hard to keep up. He said he and his wife cycle or run every day and it sure did show.
