Horseshoe Bay was a cute town not far north-west of Vancouver. Boats sat in the harbour off from the pier where a park overlooked the bay.
The town was small with only a few restaurants and shops, but Horseshoe Bay was busy because of the ferry terminal. Cars swamped the highway to board one of the B.C. ferries that sailed to the islands.
All was quiet once the ferry was loaded until the floating white whale blasted its horn. The howl vibrated through the town letting everyone know the ferry was on its way.
