Day 71: North Sydney, Nova Scotia to Argentia, Newfoundland

This morning, we boarded the M/V Joseph and Clara Smallwood at 6:30 AM for a 14-hour ferry ride to Argentia, Newfoundland. I spent most of my time sleeping, eating, writing and shooting electronic bears and prairie dogs in the arcade. I think that the most interesting thing that happened on the boat was when I thought it would be a good idea to temporarily store my gum with the unchewed gum in the package. Yeah, that was a mess.

On the ferry, I had a lot of time to reflect on ... well, everything. Where I've come from, where I'm going and what I want out of life, but those thoughts will be shared another time. At this point, as soon as I get back home, the first thing I want to do is cook. I want to be able to prepare a hot and delicious meal and be able to simply take my time savouring every bite. And then finish it all off with apple pie for dessert.

This evening, we're sleeping in the Argentia ferry terminal. At first, we weren't sure if we would be allowed to sleep here, but the staff said it was okay, so here we are. Tomorrow morning, we begin the final stretch into St. John's. I just might be so happy when I get there that I may throw myself into the Atlantic.
