The Whiteheads have celebrity status at the Whitehorse airport, especially in Baggage. Everyone was all smiles when they saw our name, one woman leaning to another and saying, "You know about them don't you?" Crystal had left instructions not to charge us for any baggage. All voiced their hopes that we get our bag back soon.
The Priority Lounge in the Vancouver Airport made our 5 hour layover enjoyable. We arrived in Sandspit at 3 o'clock. Our hotel is right next door and connected by a nice paved walkway. They are expecting a major storm tonight which will likely affect ferry service - both the one we need to get to Queen Charlotte tomorrow and the one our friends are arriving on from Prince Rupert. Once again we're going to have to wait and see.
