Since then he’s been the stay at home dad during the day while going to school at night. We see each other for about 5 minutes in his school parking lot during the week to swap kids! A few days away, just the two of us, would go a long way in relieving the stress (if only for a few days) and reconnecting as husband and wife. Thanks!

My band SeaStar would love to venture up to Victoria via the clipper but honestly, 4 tickets is too much $$ for folk players like us.. if we were to win a pair then we would be half way there and that would be no problem! We are of the philosophy that music should be shared and, with that, we give lots of free concerts and, at times, CDs. We are in the process of making a new album and this would be a great way to promote it and connect with our favourite Victoria bands and friends, like Syren and SheNanigan! And if allowed, we would love to play some tunes on the Clipper!

  161. I am following “Clipper Vacation” on Twitter!

    Thank you for the chance to win!!

  162. I would LOVE to win these round-trip tickets between Seattle & Victoria onboard the Victoria Clipper! We are in desperate need of a little vacation, and this would be the perfect getaway excuse!

  163. I would love to win this prize! We have never been to Victoria, although it’s been on our list of places to visit for many years. What a treat it would be to finally be able to visit there if I won this!

  164. I would love to go to Victoria as I’ve never been. And with a husband going back to college & a daughter starting college it’s the only vacation i’ll get in about 4 years,lol. I love NW Thirfty Mom!!!!

  165. I would love this as its my 10 year anniversary and on my anniversary last year I had a D&C due to miscarraige so I’d like to make it special this year.

  166. We live in Tacoma and have always wanted to go to Victoria, but have been unable to afford it. This would be a great vacation for my husband and I. :)

  167. I’ve never been to Victoria. I’d love to go with my hubby on a weekend getaway which we haven’t done for ages!

  168. I would love to win this package because my husband and I have enjoyed going to Victoria since before we were married. We have special memories there. With kids and busy schedules it is hard for us to get a weekend away very often and this would force us to do just that.

  169. My husband and I have been married for 12 years now, and never had a honeymoon. What would make winning these tickets perfect is 1) We spent time together as teenagers in Victoria, BC while on a band trip, and promised we’d make it back someday. And 2) He is currently deployed to the Middle East, and we’ve been trying to figure out how to afford a weekend getaway when he returns!

    Thanks for the opportunity!!
