Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

“The worst travel day of the year”

leave a comment »

That is what they were calling it on CBC tv news tonight. Mostly about not taking wrapped presents though security at the airport – but there were also references to the roads and ferries. Well, I went over to Victoria on the 9 am and came back on the 1pm – no reservations. I had an easy trip both ways and neither ferry was anything like full.

The worst issues for me were the young women talking at the tops of their voices and all sounding exactly the same

“And so I’m like, ‘really” and he’s like ‘whatever’ and it was sooo …”

And then sitting outside the cafe trying to eat a brioche with my coffee and being assaulted by the noise from the Arcade shoot ’em up games.

But to brighten my day were lots of little kids, at least one of whom is now convinced he met Santa Claus on the ferry!
