The next day, I went off to see how the salmon were running upstream:
and the day after that ~ which was yesterday, I went on a ferry to a nearby island for a change of scenery ~ it was another lovely day. Whenever I see identifying marks on a ship, I look up the specs when I get home. The Tao Star is listed here on the Wisdom Lines site. Here are photos of the BC ferry (Canadian flag), other vessels, and a view from a perfectly placed bench on the island!
