Cross Canada Trekking - Part 14 [Exploring the Ganges Harbour ⚓️]
For the Following two days, I didn't take any evening time photos (During the day was the building course - more on that at a later date.) Looking back it's always easy to say I should have taken more pics - that is almost always the case. But it's easy to forget that at that time, there were other also equal demands. Problem is, I didn't keep much of a journal those days so I can't remember what I did in those evenings. Nonetheless on Friday, about 6 days after we arrived to Salt Spring Island, our course was over. We did a tour of some rammed earth housing(once again, more at a later date.) We came back, we finished the course and it was a bittersweet finish. Sweet because it was nice to finish what we had started, and basically came to BC to do. But a bit bitter for me, because like a lot of things, it just went by so quickly. But beyond that, the course left me feeling a bit more lost than I had going in, but yet again, more on that at a later date.
We decided to go back "Downtown" Salt Spring Island, to Ganges and eat at a local pub, Mobys. It came highly reccomended somehow, but I'm not sure, for us it was average. Maybe it just wasn't our scene. I'm not a huge fan of the pub vibes. I'm not much of a foodsy type photographer for the most part, at least not yet. But didn't bother with the camera in the pub. Just wanted to eat and relax. But here are some pictures from Ganges Harbor.
A huge Yacht was moored, it bore the insignia 'After Eight.' Curious about this, I looked it up, and to my surprise all the information regarding the cost of building the ship, the date it was built, the size of the crew, the annual operating cost, etc. was all available. What also struck me the most was that the current location of the vessel was available, to the public, in real time. I guess this is the case with a lot of large ships, which I thought was a bit of a security risk, I mean couldn't pirates just mosey on up? But judging by the size of that thing, and the annual operating cost, you'd also imagine they would have their own type of defenses for those types of scenarios. Maybe that's not even something that's bound to happen. Regardless, it was interesting to see a huge $25 million dollar ship, and a mere few meters away, was someones old aluminum boat that was probably worth like a hundred dollars. Alas, it's not terribly surprising - this life is just full of duality wherever you look.
