Back at the Atlantic Vision again

Goodbye to Newfoundland at Channel-Port-aux-Basques

and hello to the company docks in North Sydney NS

The day started off with somewhat decent weather, but after the boat left the dock it turned into a very rough voyage. There were lots of signs (a.k.a. air sick bags) everywhere on the boat, and the captain made an announcement saying that this trip would be better ... I would have hated to be on the overnight voyage! Anyway, a gravol pill and a nap in our cabin and I was fine! When we went back down to our motorhome at the docking, we realized that the tractor trailer rig next to us was parked within two inches of the body of the motorhome. Sure enough he brushed past us as he was moving, so Malcolm jumped out to do an inspection and the whole boat unloading process was held up until everyone decided it was very minor damage (really), so we were glad to get off that boat!

We let our GPS find us a restaurant in Sydney for supper (turned out to be organic, Tunisian-infoluenced!), but it was delicious, and we headed off happy to the nearest WalMart parking lot for the night.
