Not Irish, But Seem To Have The Luck.

Up at 4:30am… laid in bed until 5am… was still cranky after coffee and leaving the house at 5:45am to go leave the mommy van at the apartment and catch the 6:45am waterfront bus.

I hate early mornings. But there is only one ferry in each direction to Victoria this time of year. That would be the 8am sailing that you generally clear customs a little before 11am… WAY before the check-in time at the WorldMark (or most hotels) of 4pm.

And now we get to the luck part. The room was ready. Checked in at 11am! Got settled, went next door to the Blue Crab for an upscale burger and salad and glass of celebratory champagne, went shopping for groceries, and had a nap — all before 4pm. Heavenly.

Dinner tonight was a steak off the grill after a hot tub.. salad, baked potato, wine.. too bad I can’t live here full time.

That would be me toasting the Irish with a glass of Jameson Irish Whiskey from duty free.
