used to in the Smorgasbord
state take a tip from us and
five yourself an extra three or
four days for a side jaunt by
land and water to Vancouver
island in British Columbia.
Victoria, capital of British
Columbia, and which is on the
island, is almost more English
than England, as you undoubt
edly have heard. At least that's
what we have always been told
and the other day we got a
chance to judge for ourselves.
The Oregonian and the Oregon
State Motor association get to
'gether each summer in sponsor
ing a series of motorlog trips
stimulate auto travel and
give the readers a few sugges
tions as to what they might find
interesting in a scenic way.
That's how we happen to be
such authorities just now on
' Vancouver island.
Furnished with the white
AAA travel car by the motor
association and a set of reserva
tions for motor court accommo
dations all along the way, we
took off at 6 p. m. Wednesday
night for Seattle on the first leg
of the trip. Next day v.e ar
rived in Canada Vancouver, to
be specific, which, however, is
more like an American city than
a British one.
Strait Ferry Large
Everyone was most cordial in
Vancouver, and on Friday we
were off across the Strait of
Georgia on the Princess Elaine,
a CPR ferry boat of consider
able size with seats built across
its two passenger decks like a
gigantic street car.
