East Coast Tour - Day 11

It's been a 14 hour travel day. FOURTEEN hours!!! Whew!

We left Halifax bright and early to drive east to catch the ferry to Newfoundland. It was a great day in the car - clear weather, good soundtrack, and lots of laughing.

Driving through Cape Breton was beautiful, of course. We arrived early in North Sydney, so we found a restaurant right by the water. The weather was perfect, so we grabbed a picnic table overlooking the ferries and ordered the special of the day - lobster casserole! Big pieces of lobster swimming in cheese and cream sauce. Talk about a decadent lunch!

In the afternoon we boarded the ferry! I love any chance to get on a boat (I'm like my Dad that way.) We were able to grab a quiet couple of seats by the window, and settled in for a smooth crossing. I got a couple of great photos of the sunset that I'll post tomorrow.

We also met more Christian musicians on the ferry! A PEI-based Celtic family group called The Skys. They're touring Newfoundland for the first time. Lots of great music is about to hit the island!

We're settled into Port aux Basques for the night. Looking forward to every day of the next 2 weeks!

Toronto is our home where we live, 
and Nashville is our Southern home, 
but Newfoundland, well, that's the original.
