Yesterday I headed over to Port Angeles to their annual Crabfest, or how they marketed it to us Cannucks, Save A Turkey Fest this Canadian Thanksgiving. The day began with waiting in line to board the MV Coho ferry in a torrential downpour for half an hour and then having to sit outside on deck on the crowded, cold ferry for the one and a half hour journey over to Port Angeles. But the rain stopped long enough for me to take some awesome shots of Victoria’s inner harbour and Fisherman’s Wharf receding in the mist.
On board, some hot tea and the warm company of my friends made me forget the cold, and a renewed storm afforded me some great shots of slick seats, flapping flag and even a rainbow.
Of course we Canadians always follow directions, and proceeded to muster as shown while waiting to disembark.
Port Angeles is always a pretty site to see with its dramatic backdrop of the Olympic mountains. This day was misty but we lucked out with some gorgeous sunshine for a few hours.
Before heading to the crab dinner we checked out the vendors and locals and got some awesome clothing accessories!
Finally it was time to eat, and what a messy, delicious feast it was!
We sat out another storm before boarding the ferry home. For some it had been a long day, but we all agreed a super fun one, out with our best friends, good eats and fun times.

Wishing all my Canadian friends a Happy Thanksgiving!
