That classic tune should have been playing in the dining room at the Hotel Port aux Basques. I'd ridden in rain for most of the trip from Gros Morne NP and was looking forward to doing laundry and warming up. The road south was wet but not as much standing water as you'd think from the volumes we'd received over the past few days, so I made pretty …

Had a good breakfast at the Hampton Inn and set off for Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. Pouring rain most of the day. Not much visibility on the 6 hour drive from Moncton to North Sydney.
We arrived at the ferry terminal at 4 PM. Thought this was very early for the 6:45 PM departure but there were plenty of cars (and big trucks) ahead of us. …

Had lots of time today, its only a 2 and a half hour drive to Port aux Basques and my ferry is tomorrow morning. Drove through the city which has a really interesting shape to it. A horseshoe shape with only the centre being sea level. I went to the Captain James Cook Historic Park for a view of the city. It started to rain and heard that they …

... have to arrive 2 hours earlier! We thought we'd rather see more of the sights than be on such a long ferry trip. I had to take gravol for the first crossing; but it's the Atlantic. Another reason we backed tracked was we missed a big highlight which was Grose Morne National Park. The park was definitely worth it. It's huge, we camped in the park for a couple nights. Drove most of it, and did this scenic, beautiful hike. I'll download photos...St John's was a ...

    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.
