Decided may long was the best time for our first trip of the year to texada, it was a great time, but not the best for ferries.

Packed up and left for the first of three ferries.

My friend and his dog that came with me and my girlfriend, along with another runner with 2 people.

Damn nice spot! We're gonna have to get out there this summer - one less ferry for me.

We had friends in the ferry lineup going back on Monday, and I live about 3 minutes from the ferry, so we made sure to meet them in line with Mambo Pizza and beer... They waited THREE sailings. Argh.
