After I disembarked from the ferry in Prince Rupert, this quiet lay back town was a perfect end to my trip. I loafed around town along the beautiful waterways, explored a hiking trail and even rented a car and drove to Port Edward not far away to tour a cannery no longer in operation.
On the tour, a local First Nation man led us through the main building and housing. The most interesting part for me was the segregation: the shocking difference between accommodation supplied to the First Nation workers, compared to the Japanese workers, compared to the European housing. Said a lot about the times.
Leaving Prince Rupert, airline passengers took a ferry ride across calm water to the airport set apart from the town on an island. The ride was a beautiful goodbye to yet another enjoyable holiday.
