Where I stayed
Ferry from Argentia to Sydney, NS

We spent the morning packing and getting the house ready to be closed up for the winter. Donald arrived shortly before noon, helped Tom get the water drained, took down the flagpole and relieved us of perishables we didn't want to bring with us.  We intended to leave by noon but found the ferry would be 30 minutes late.  Mary and Armand stopped by to tell us "goodbye" and that Robin would be coming out that afternoon and were sorry we would miss him.

We left shortly before 1 pm for the two hour drive to Argentia, the ferry’s port. As luck (?) would have it, we didn't drive aboard until 5 pm and the ferry left shortly thereafter.

After a not-so-memorable cafeteria meal, we went to our cabin and went to bed early so we could be ready to disembark at the posted arrival time of 6 a.m. in Sydney, NS.
