On the ferry

Hi everyone

In our last blog we told you about our ordeals. Things have improved drastically since then and we are back to loving traveling. As a matter of fact we love it a little more every day. This mostly for three reasons: first we get to go outside more than we ever did before we started exploring the world. Second we found out (after that horrible trip across Labrador) that the rides in our fifth wheel are not all that bad after all. We are getting used to it and it doesn't bother us much anymore which is great. And third we get to see and explore new stuff at every stop we make.

When we drove across Labrador Hunter here was really scared and went to hide in the litter box as soon as we hit the road. Sue didn't like that at all. She felt sorry for Hunter and wished she could do something to make his fear go away. First she offered him another place to hide and then he found out, that the traveling is not actually scary. He now feels comfortable enough to not hide at all but even stay on the moving part of the fifth wheel when Sue or André open or close the slides. This is fantastic news. Congratulations, Hunter, for overcoming your fear! I'm proud of you, buddy.

Thanks, Trapper. I really didn't like it there for a while but now I'm fine and enjoy the trip. This includes the new stuff we get to experience. Like the ride from Labrador to Newfoundland on the ferry. First we drove a very short distance and it became dark and smelled a bit funny. Like in a big city with lots of cars if you know what I mean. Then a rumble started and a bit of vibration but nothing bad happened. After a few minutes, the rumbling became louder and then everything started to gently roll a little. As seasoned world travelers we know this is what happens when one goes to sea. It was actually lulling us into a snooze and we only got woken up about an hour and a half later when we arrived in Newfoundland and rolled off the ferry again.

Then we drove to St. Anthony where we stayed a whole week. This was very nice and Sue took us out for a walk twice! One of these two times we found out that in the next trailer there also was a four-legged occupant: a small dog. To Sue's astonishment Hunter headed straight for that little dog when he saw him! She had expected him to back off but no, curiosity got the better of Hunter and if Sue hadn't stopped him, he would have walked right up to him! I'm not as brave and kept my distance.

Anyhow we are having a great time and can't wait to see what the next campground has to offer.

See you around
