We spent the evening in a gas station parking lot last night and then at 11:15pm we moved the car and motorhome to the holding lot for the morning ferry service to Newfoundland aboard Marine Atlantic. We got a restless nights sleep but were up early and ready for our voyage.
We waited several hours to board and then were called to drive on to the ferry. Dad drove Luna (the motorhome) and Mom drove Baymax (the car) onto the ship. It was a very tight fit but we safely made it.
We parked and left the vehicles for the 6 hour crossing. We enjoyed a lunch in the restaurant and then checked out our special seats. We had reclining seats near the window so we could watch out. We also booked a berth so Mom and Dad could shower and get cleaned up. The berth was neat. It had a small bathroom and shower and bunkbeds for four people.
We safely made the passage and exited when we were told to. We drive 15km from Port Aux Basque to our campsite at JT Cheeseman Provincial Park. The campground was less than we desired and was under a boil water notice, that we weren’t told about until AFTER we checked in. We explored and checked out the offerings of the park. There was a nice beach but you werenâ€™t allowed to swim or collect shells. We plan to leave tomorrow and head to our next destination early. The sunset was amazing at the campground.
