Mom and Dad saw me off at the airport this morning. It was good to have at least a short visit with them. They gave me a few addresses along the way, too. First leg of the flight [from Ottawa, Ont., to Victoria, B.C.] was quiet--then I talked to a guy beside me on the way from Calgary to Vancouver. Scenery was very interesting from the window. Plane emptied out for the way to Victoria.
I put my bike together in the airport and went to town. Got some info and phoned Jessie and Bob S. (great aunt and uncle). After buying a few supplies I went up to their house and had a good visit with them. So I didn't camp on my first night here.
