It is a few minutes to the ferry, but don't count on speed in the dining room. They would benefit from a manager who could train the waitresses on efficient service. You wait for a menu, you wait for a drink (even water) and, boy, you wait for your food. Oh, yes, and you wait for your bill.
It wasn't so busy for dinner, but the waitress couldn't seem to deal with remembering orders or what was in the food. Does not give you confidence in the chef if the servers have never sampled items, or even seem interested.
Breakfast of toast and coffee would be faster, I hoped. Hah. Not a chance. Good thing I'd packed for the ferry already.

On the last 50 kilometers, we stopped for diesel at an Irving along Trans Canadian Highway 1. There was a sign on the pump stating that the debit feature was not operating. Not a problem since I was using my trusty travel Visa card. So I filled the tank. It came up to $65 Canadian. When I went ...
... at a souvenir shop to get something for Izzie. Then we headed on the hour drive to the Port Anguille Lighthouse. Our mission was to get some lunch before arriving at the lighthouse. On the way to the lighthouse we went through the Codroy Valley Provincial Park. This park borders the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Anguille Mountains. When we got to the park, we had to go through a one lane bridge. It was quite the chore since you couldn’t see ...
... in this area. We were told that we would be parked on a deck with fresh air. They even gave us a little placard that said we had a pet on board. Apparently the shore workers didn't care as we were parked with other big rigs and RVs. This boat – the Leif Erickson was not equipped with any kennel facilities. So Mousse will have to spend seven hours below deck. I felt sorry for him. Now the Leif Erickson was said to be the best ship in ...
