Prince Rupert

We're in Prince Rupert with the possibility (currently we are on a wait list) that we will be on a BC Ferry to Vancover Island in the morning. Our three days here have been mostly rainy - but we've managed to stay busy and have enjoyed our stay. We visited a local museum, a National Historic Site, managed two hikes, and did our usual drive to the "end of the road".

A nice sunken garden in town

 

 

Constructed in the 1890s - we had an informative walking tour
At its peak the cannery had 100 of these houses for First Nation employees. The cannery also employed Chinese, Japanese and European workers - each having separate accommodations.
