The past few nights I have been staying in North Sydney, Nova Scotia. I picked this town as a base to see Cape Breton Highlands National Park AND because it is the port where the ferry leaves to go to Port aux Basques, Newfoundland.
This was the ferry which was at the port Monday night when I arrived here:
The ride is supposed to take between 5 1/2 and 7 hours, depending on the weather. I will have plenty of time on that journey to review pictures and assemble more posts about the Park and some other things I saw the past few days. I also plan to post some more general comments and observations about my first two weeks in Canada.
I don’t know how reliable the internet will be for the 10 nights I am up there. Most of my stops are in pretty rural areas and it may not be until I get to St. Johns on the east side of the island that I’ll be close to a major town. Don’t worry, I’ll just keep accumulating photos and writing the commentary and I’ll get caught up eventually!
Depending on what time I wake up tomorrow morning I may sneak a few more posts in before I report to the port and check-in. They say there is wifi on the ship but we’ll see if that’s true and how good it is. I may also get some work done in the waiting area before we board.
