On our way home

The view from our campsite
Last night after we dropped Amanda off at the airport and got back to camp we went over to see Gerard and Barb.  They are the couple that brought us all the fish when we were at the Blue Fin a week or so ago.  Arnold and Teresa were also there.  These 4 people have been great and treated us like one of the gang. We had ordered 20 lbs of codfish from Gerard at cost, so they made a special trip out to the trailer to deliver it to us.  What great people! We had another fun visit with these awesome Newfoundlanders, exchanged email addresses and promised to keep in touch. We hook Hemi and Elbroko up one more time, and left the Blue Fin around 11:30 and headed over to Argentia.  We have reservations for the 3:30 ferry to Nova Scotia on Saturday and just wanted to be in the area. We are really hoping for a smooth crossing.  We will be on the ferry for 14 hours arriving in North Sydney, Nova Scotia at 7:30 a.m.  We have had a fantastic vacation!  We feel so blessed to have been able to see so many things, and meet so many wonderful people during our 2 months on this wonderful Island of Newfoundland.  Someone asked me what my favourite part was, I honestly could not pick one thing, it has all been fabulous.  Although re-connecting with my relatives definitely has a special place in our backroad memories. We had a nice relaxing afternoon enjoying the view of the ocean from our campsite. It seems now that we are booked to go home all we want to do is get home. We do miss our family and friends at home and are looking forward to seeing them all.  We are also very excited about the new addition to our family that will be arriving in a month. I can hardly wait to have that little bundle of joy in my arms.  Our last night on the Island we were blessed with this lovely sunset, the grand finale of our time in Newfoundland.  What amazing Backroad Memories we have in our collection now!!!! 


Don't Be a Stranger!
