The Lady Comes to Tofino

This little ship...



is coming to Tofino.

Read about it here. I'm glad to hear she'll be staying on the west coast and a restaurant and some sort of maritime museum sounds like a great use. I have fond memories of the Lady Rose from when FH and I (and Daughter A in her early months) lived in Bamfield. The photo above is taken Bamfield Inlet.

If you're a visitor to the coast, I highly recommend trying to fit a trip on the Lady Rose's sister ship the Frances Barkley, which is still operating. In the summer you can embark or disembark in Ucluelet. It's not a car ferry so you'll have to arrange for a pick-up or link with the bus from either end, but it is well worth a trip if you want to see some of Barkley Sound, including the Broken Group Islands. Details on times and other info. here, at the Lady Rose Marine Transport site.
