On June 22, the day after my birthday, we took our road bikes on the ferry from Anacortes to Sidney, B.C.
I thought this was a cool picture of Raven on the ferry.

At our favorite pub on Beacon Street pier. We ate there twice.

We walked to the beach from our B&B, Glenelg B&B.
We rode our bikes from the B&B 8 km back to Sidney and had dinner here. It was really good -- we can recommend this place! Hopefully your waitress will be the granddaughter of the former owner.
We rode on bike paths and wide shoulders to Victoria, mostly because we managed to miss the turn off to Butchart Gardens. This bike store will store your bike for free while you walk around town for the day.

The Empress Hotel.
Legislative building in Victoria. It started to drizzle a bit so we went to the museum next door and saw a cool exhibit on Vikings. This museum also has a very good permanent Native Peoples exhibit.
We rode back to Sidney and found many restaurants closed on Monday so we ended up at the Beacon Street pier pub for the 2nd time.
The next day we rode from our B&B back to the ferry. We saw a pod of orcas on the way back, which was the first time I'd seen orcas in spite of living in WA for most of my life.
