nobody in Seattle flies to Victoria except peerhaps rich folks. There are
several boats every day that bomb up to Victoria from Seattle. It doesn't
take long and the scenry is great. Want me to find out more info for you?

The topic was, well, you can probably guess. I've put translation
of the Scottish Gaelic in 's.

"Why did you bring that book I didn't want to be read out of to
about Down Under up for?" :-)
Chan eil "why...for" deagh Bheurla mar a tha mi a smaoineachadh.
'S fearr "what...for", nach e?
It isn't "why...for" in English as far as I know. "What...for"
is better, isn't it?
Tha thu ceart! You're right!
Rinn mi mearachd, "tha "What ... for?" nas fhea\rr.
I made a mistake, "What...for" is better
Ach chan eil dad cea\rr le na 8 roimh-bhriathran, ge ta.
But there's nothing wrong with the 8 prepositions, though.

As I wrote Natalie Maynor, contact Clipper Navigation, Inc. 1-206-448-5000,
in Seattle for schedule, reservations, prices, etc. I was able to obtain
a non-cancellable reservation, round-trip ticket for $69.00. The Victoria
Clipper takes one to Victoria in 2 1/2 hours. There are other ferries, but
the Clipper is the fastest and most direct. CLHouck

Subject: Re: Methods VIII TRAVEL PLANS
Natalie's plan to fly to Seattle is a good one. The hydrofoil is nice,
I've taken it (about ninety minutes). I don't know what you mean by not-
very-expensive. It was around $80 US the last time I took it. For a few
dollars more, I took a seaplane (about a five-seater) from the harbour in
front of the Empress Hotel, Victoria, to Lake Union in Seattle. What a
terrific trip. You fly low enough to appreciate the view.
My only regret is that the Princess Margaret no longer
sails from Seattle to Vancouver. That was gracious, almost-Victorian,
Now the cheapest way to go is to take the bus from SeaTac to Vancouver,
then the passenger ferry to Vancouver Island. On the ferry you can buy a bus
ticket that will take you to downtown Victoria. If you know just where
to get off, the bus driver will drop you near the campus and you can take
a very short cab ride to campus housing.

Any of you who are planning on going to Methods VIII better start making
travel arrangements. I thought I was getting an early start by trying to
buy a plane ticket today (since I'm going to be out of town for much of
July). There are *no* seats left from Victoria to Seattle on August 8
except on Air Alaska, which would make the price several hundred dollars
over the estimate I got from Northwest a month or two ago. Same for
August 9. The travel agent said that she's never seen flights from
Canada so full this far in advance -- that something big must be happening
around that time
