I stayed at a most wonderful BnB in North Sydney, Heritage Home. It is an old preserved home from the early years right on the water front. The rooms reflect the time period and there are multiple places to sit and take your ease. Inside, in one of three parlours. Outside, on the back deck, in the garden, or on the front porch looking at the sea. That was my option. But first, I arrived and no one was there. The door was unlocked, there were notes for me and a few others, but no guests and no hosts....disconcerting. There was a note listing the best restaurants, so I went and had fish and chips at the Waterside. Excellent. It was walking distance, which I needed after the pile of fresh cut fries. Still no one home when I returned, so I took advantage of the shower and sat on the deck reading to the sound of the waves, quite perfect. Once my host got home, I could access Internet and found that I no longer needed to be at the ferry dock at 3, I could sleep in and be there by 6. A banana and muffin were left for
me to take on the ferry.
The ferry was huge and the waters were calm, at least half way there. I went outside and watched as the swells got bigger. I think I should have been a sailor; I love being on the water. Once we got to NFL you get of the boat and you're on the highway immediately and I just drove. I'm getting a better and better picture of the similarities and differences of the landscapes of Canada. I loved the first 100 km with its huge hill mountains even with the 70 km winds. I found a campground at Deer Lake to ease my sleep weary body, then up again in the morning so I could get to St Johns to see Harvey. There are more mountains here than I realized and some landscapes that seem to come from the moon. It's lovely, too many places to visit and stay.
Sweet dreams and goodnight.
