Someone mentioned the Victoria meet to me last weekend. He told me it's a great facility. Of course it would be a shame to go to Victoria and not take in some of the sights while you're there.

Do you guys take the ferry there or can get a quick flight to Victoria, BC?

I take my car or motorhome on the ferry. But have made the flight several times.

From Seattle you could either take a ferry or a float plane (Kenmore Air).

There's a double bonus for me in Victoria -- the meet and some old friends (from early 90s) who I haven't seen in 2 years.

I won't be able to go to Canada this year...I either need to get a passport, or one of the enhanced drivers licenses to cross the border.

Looks like you had some good swims.

Megan dropped her times since the Anacortes meet.

She was fun to watch. I think she set masters world records in all three events she swam (100 IM, 100 & 200 Breast):

Yes 183 swimmers, some very good swims. I did manage to watch Megan swim, she did have some great swims.

The Canadian Navy master swimming team was there and seemed to be having lots of fun. The English Bay swim club was very enthusiastic, lots of cheering.
