#10 Getting Back to the Boat

For the past three weeks the Wild Blue has been moored in Port McNeill, British Columbia. Today Pat and I are doing a car, 3 planes and a taxi to get back to cruising. We spent the night near San Jose Airport then moved the car to the Marriott's long term parking, rode Alaska Air to Portland, then Horizon Air to Vancouver, and Pacific Coastal Air to Port Hardy Airport. Finally, our friend the taxi driver met us at the airport for the 1/2 hour ride to Port McNeill.

The last flight was in a tiny twin-engine plane with just 11 seats. You kind of had to crawl into your seat. Alex, who has been a bit claustrophobic lately, sat just behind the pilot. To keep his mind off the heat and restricted space, Alex photoed the pilots in action.
