A Great Canadian Road Trip 17

A very uneventful day but it worked out much better than we anticipated. The ferry from Port aux Basque NL to North Sydney NS took about 6 hours. There was only about 100 vehicles onboard - not crowded at all. The ship is huge - I still say these things can't possibly float, even without the additional 700 tons of vehicles.
We knew it was going to be a long passage and possibly rough so we had a day berth. Great decision. We could lie down, had our own washroom with a shower, satellite TV - this ship was as nice as any cruise ship we've been on.
All signs pointed to it being a miserable crossing with total overcast conditions and a stiff wind as we left but in Jimmy Buffett's words "It's been a lovely cruise." We enjoyed it on waters so calm we hardly knew we were moving.
On to Arichat for 3 days tomorrow.                    Eric and Karen
