[edit] Plans

My plan is to visit this location starting from Vancouver:

  • Bike to Bridgeport bus exchange
  • Bus 620 (with bike) to Twassen ferry
  • Ferry Tswassen - Swartzbay
  • Ferry Swartzbay - Fulford Harbour
  • Bike around Saltspring Island to reach the geohash at the north end
  • Ferry LongHarbour - Tswassen
  • Bus back to Bridgeport
  • Skytrain to get close to my house since I will be tired and to get an extra mode of transportation.

If most things work out, I will not get stuck on this island missing the last ferry...

The weather started of with rain, but before arriving on the Island it got dry and the afternoon was sunny and very nice. Sunset on the ferry back to the mainland was stunning.
