Destination - Vancouver, BC
|DAY 22 - SEPT 23 - FRIDAY
The weather was a little bit of a factor today. Light rains, with periods of heavy rain.
We headed out north in the rental car from Bellevue making our first stop in Bellingham to see their fireboat. After enjoying a nice lunch there on the docks, we again headed north to the Canadian border back into British Columbia.
Getting into Vancouver, BC proved interesting with the rain and mid Friday afternoon traffic, but we found our way downtown and stopped at one of the first fire stations we came to - Station 7. The crew there was very friendly. We traded patches and learned of the fireboat locations.
We found Vancouver's Fireboat 5 in a light
rain and then made our way to a hotel for Night 22 in Vancouver.
