Too many places

The Huasi Hotel that we were staying at in Old Town Quito (Ecuador) allowed us to store our motorcycle in their lower level garage for $0.50 per day during our trip back home to Canada. We caught our flight on September 1st and after a brief layover in Miami FL USA, we landed in Los Angeles USA where we disembarked (our original plan was to fly to Seattle WA). Change of plans was due to Jordan finding his dream car online, a 1965 Ranchero, close to Los Angeles. It's a real beauty! We bunked in with close friends for a few days as Jordan did the required paperwork.

Then we drove his new/old car to Seattle. Our reason for stopping in Seattle was to drop off our 1-year old autopilot to get repaired. We then continued to Victoria BC Canada where we visited with friends and family. While there, Jordan jumped on his son's motorcycle and cruised up to Penticton BC to visit his Mom and Dad. And I flew to Calgary AB and from there went to Strathmore, Drumheller, Pine Lake, and Sylvan Lake - making a very busy hectic week of visiting family. Upon my return to Victoria, it was non-stop running around doing errands and filling "things to get" list for our home afloat down south.

Time flew by, leaving us with errands not yet done and friends not yet visited. But unfortunately it was time to go. Once again, sad to leave loved ones behind, but happy to be returning to Sea Turtle.

After picking up our repaired autopilot in Seattle, we flew from Seattle to Dallas Fort Worth to Miami and finally Quito. We had boarded a "red eye" so it was a very long and tiring trip. Too many places!
