This takes place in the "alternate" Victoria - the one that I have had dreams about. It's kind of the same, but there are also many differences, including a type of hover-platform mass transportation, a different mall downtown, and a restaurant in the Inner Harbor called the Pirate's Cove (which has Tiki decor, and sits on a barge). These features do not exist "in real life" but either exist in a parallel reality, or may exist some time in the future. I'm especially hopeful about the hover-busses!
There is also a bar in Market Square that exists in my dreams that doesn't exist "in real life". The interior is warm shellacked yellow cedar, surrounded with clear glass walls, and it is located on Johnson street, next to the stairs leading down to the "common" area. You might mistake it for an oversize "Jenga" set, or a nouveaux-riche treehouse. It's a cozy little bar, popular but not crowded. 2 levels, overlooking the square.
The fishing boat makes a right into a tunnel, and we are pulled quickly upwards on a steep incline. Rather than a fishing boat, it now appears we're on a roller coaster. All around us are scenes of industry, and there are large colorful crystals along the top of the cave. It's quite spectacular - rushing water is falling down around us; we're climbing a waterfall (like a spawning salmon?).
At this point I find myself in a "in-between" place. I am no longer in the roller coaster, there is nothing around me. But my "focus" is only on me - I find myself in my sleeping-clothes (lightweight shorts and a t-shirt), and I am bewildered, since I still think I'm on the roller-coaster. I feel for my wallet and my cell phone which SHOULD be in my pockets if I'm in my regular clothes... but they're not there... I briefly panic... and then I realize that I'm no longer where I used to be... but I'm not quite back to "real life". I am "nowhere"... but I am also, now, wearing what I did when I went to sleep the night before.
A few moments more and the "real world" fades in around me. I wake up, in bed. It's too early for the alarm, so I wait for my mind to catch up with reality. It does... eventually.
