I hear you loud and clear Nightsailor....what I was referring to is a class of liquor license
in this jurisdiction called "neighbourhood pubs" (as opposed to nightclubs)....typically they are busy during the day and kind of slow at night (except for weekends). A lot of them are more restaurant than bar. During the week they close at midnight and are generally "dead" after ten o'clock. I should have been more specific.
too bad your ferries run so often! around here, on secondary routes, last ferry is usually around 7-730pm and first is 630 or 700
I came from sailing as well...and quite frankly I am unpleasantly surprised at how inconsiderate RV people can be. You would think that everyone would realize that being parked so close together you can't have your stereo on "10", run your generator
or let your dogs bark incessantly while you're inside, door shut and AC on, watching your favorite reality TV show...that kind of behavior is driving me more and more to seek out "one spot" camping spots in the bush.
My sailing was trailersailing...so I could always find somewhere where I was completely by myself (I got spoiled I guess)....most of the time I would anchor back and tie up to shore....so any small bay, indent in the shore was an overnight spot (when you shower on deck you need your privacy!)
One thing about camping though (as opposed to sailing) ...you're never going to end up outside in a panic in the middle of the night with no clothes on fighting so your trailer doesn't crash on a bunch of rocks.....LOL....every sailor's "been there".....another major difference is that nice hot shower whenever you want one
For another "guerilla camping" idea...about RV dealerships?...talk about getting lost in the crowd, not sticking out like a sore thumb.....parked on a side road beside a dealership you might be mistaken for overflow...or just waiting for the dealership to open the next day...
