Daily Didactic
Today was a wonderful "down day". We slept late and headed back to Cowpuccinos for another breakfast. After a slow morning we jumped into the bus to traverse Prince Rupert for the ferry terminal, with the goal of making sure our reservations were functional. There was no particular reason to question everything being in order, but the junction of two months of driving and our first firm deadline of the summer made it feel like a good idea. We found the Alaska Marine Highway ferry terminal and a sadly cranky man who processed our tickets. We were heading back through Prince Rupert for the hostel twenty minutes later, done with all the responsibilities we could conjure up for the day.

Theresa found the community gym for a workout while Brian did his best to catch up on the internet at the hostel. The hostel keeper Christy let us know there would be a guest bar-b-que at 7:00. We aren't big on social gatherings with strangers, but usually find that we enjoy the folks we end up meeting. Tonight was no different and we chatted with an interesting collection of Canadian and European travelers over dinner and a campfire.

We hit the hay, setting the alarm for 5:00 AM to be in line at the ferry dock by 5:30. This makes neither of us happy.
