Go Canucks Go!

This Morning it was time to leave the island.  I was feeling a bit sad to go but also happy to be going home to the boyfriend and looking forward to the game tonight.

To Do List:

- Get up, have hot cup o tea , watch some morning news
- Pack up my stuff and load it into the Pig (my car, it sucks gas )
- Have camera on passenger seat in case I see anything interesting on the trip home
- Lock up and head for the Ferry by 9:00 am

About half way through the trip from Gabriola to Nanaimo, the Captain of the Quinsam  comes over the loud-speaker to tell us that there is a pod of Orcas on the port side of the ship. Everyone went to look.

Clearly this was a sign from the hockey gods that we are going to win tonight.
Shortly after that I continued on to Departure Bay to catch the big ferry to Vancouver.  There were a lot of people left behind from the previous sailing.  It was as if everyone had hockey fever!

Everywhere I looked, Canucks fans!

  More Canucks fans.....

Even the newspaper man was in on the excitement!

There were flags and signs on so many cars.

Even a couple of Bruins fans.

Good luck tonight Canucks!
