It has been so much fun in Newfoundland and we really did enjoy it. André and Sue have behaved nicely and we got to go out more often than ever before in our lifes. If it continues this way, we could keep traveling forever.
We do continue our trip and after almost 5 weeks on the rock it was time to set sail for Nova Scotia. An we mean that almost literally. After a very early morning (Sue who is always the last of us to get up, got out of bed at 3 a.m.) we drove to the harbour at Port-aux-Basques where we boarded the ferry. This was our second trip on a big boat and we seem to be naturals at it. Sailing the high seas doesn't bother us at all and we seem to have what humans call sea-legs. Never once did we loose our balance on the 5 hour trip.
After we arrived in Nova Scotia, we drove to Cheticamp which is on the northeast side of the province. André and Sue know some people there and wanted to visit them. They also wanted to see the world famous Cabott Trail. So we found a nice campground and settled in for a couple of nights. We actually wanted to stay for 3 nights but they were booked for the weekend and so we had to leave after 2. The only downside of our stay at Cheticamp was that Sue didn't take us out. We don't know why but looking out the window we saw quiet a few dogs and maybe she was afraid that we would chase them away which would have upset their humans.
As we said, we had to leave after 2 nights and drove to Louisbourg which is a fantastic place to be. Here we got to go out and since the campground is literally steps from the fishing harbour we got to see the sea and smell the saltwater! Wow, we've never experienced that before and it was amazing! As far as we are concerned this place is awesome!
That's it for today. Sue will tell you all about this part of our trip in her travel blog so don't forget to check it out.
See you aroundhunter and trapper
