HARBOUR FERRIES

The Victoria Harbour Ferry is an 'institution' here in the harbour ... these are cute little water taxis that zip around the harbour all summer carrying locals and tourists alike, and stopping here and there.

Well, our marina decided to get them to stop here. Ocean River Sports and Capital Iron (two really popular stores right here) spear-headed the effort, and held a press conference/party to celebrate their debut. . .

And here comes the Harbour Ferries, and they're about to perform their WORLD FAMOUS WATER BALLET for us ...

... and then they go by ...

... and then the turn...

... and then having to wait while a big honkin' tug and barge goes by, and a few rowers get out of the way!

And then... the ballet!


One more circle...

Taking a bow...

... and sailing away...

Now, wasn't that fun?

I remember when those ferries were introduced to the Harbour -- what a great success story they are!
