One of the things I love about living in Vancouver is riding the ferry. At least a few times a year I go on trips that require riding the ferry to go visit one of the numerous islands off the coast of B.C. or up to the Sunshine Coast. Yesterday I rode the ferry to the latter.

The views of the mountains and the ocean from the ferry are simply stunning. Whenever I behold them, I'm filled with awe and gratitude for the opportunity to enjoy their beauty. Even when the weather is gloomy and rainy (as it was while I was there), the seascapes and mountainscapes remain striking.

Although I hate the constant rain, I realize that it's the reason the western coast of B.C. is so gorgeous.
