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.

Before heading back, Barb drove us to Jeannette' folks place there in Margaree, and we saw Shane and his family.
We didn't talk about the tragedy ...
... him also. Then their daughter, Amanda, her husband and grand-daughter made a surprise visit to see the folks - during this stressful time. We tried to explain to Barb and Albert that we understand that they have a lot on their plate and they didn't have to entertain us - but Barb said it was a welcome change than being at the house.
We then went into Codroy to have lunch - Barb said she hadn't eaten a wholesome meal in ...
... a dolls head on the top. The “ugly stick player” taps the stick on the floor with one hand, and with another short stick in the other hand, slaps the stick after it hits the floor so it make a thumping noise followed by the sound like a castanet.
After dinner, I needed to get some things done on the coach so that we would be ready to leave by seven the next morning so Shirley took off with the Lynches to check out some of the local ...
