Let me explain. I only just started driving... I got my license when I turned 33 and my entire world opened up to me. Before I rarely went to Vancouver or did any traveling because I always have to depend on the kindness of friends and family to drive me around.
The day I started driving... everything changed. I can go where I want, do what I want when I want it. Run errands without having to wait for Gerry or someone else to drive me around. It's been such an freeing experience.
While I am comfortable driving around the Victoria area, I just started driving over to Vancouver by myself this year. At first I was very nervous, but armed with my trusty map... I realized how easy it is to get around. This last trip (my 2nd time driving alone in Vancouver) went very well. I navigated around Vancouver like a pro and felt this funny feeling in my chest as I drove towards the ferry on my way home.
Oh. Wait... I think that's pride. I'm proud of myself. *laugh*
I used to live such a small tiny life that I designed myself... because I refused to drive. Now you have to fight me for the drivers seat.
So... the trip.
Vancouver was a lot of fun. I missed the 1pm ferry on the way over and had to wait for the 3pm one, so my casual relaxing day of going over to Van turned into a stressful one, dodging traffic so I could arrive to my demo on time. I got there with about 30 minutes to spare, so I grabbed some food and headed down to the ocean (a block away) to relax. What a view...
The demo went well... I forgot to take a photo of the crowd, but i had a really great time just sitting with the group talking about Veganism and enjoying everyones company. I also got to meet friends I've only known via the internet. As well as some new friendly faces.
It was a short but sweet visit and I headed home the next a.m. to a very sad dog. Fergus is not happy with all my traveling. It's really hard on him and I feel terrible.
So today is all about Fergus. We're gonna have some fun.
And then do laundry.
Why so much laundry?
I hope to see you in Seattle!
