Greetings from Sydney, Nova Scotia. This post will be brief as Polly and I have a ferry to catch – to Newfoundland.
Yep, Newfoundland. As in the Rock. As in the place where getting “screeched in” has nothing to do with locking up your wagon brakes and everything to do with head-achy spirits consumed in oceanic quantities. Or so I’m told.
In the meantime, for everyone suffering through the late spring heat, a few cooling photos from Nova Scotia. Since entering Canada, I have built a fire in my wood stove every night. Polly’s doing her best to stay warm. Looking closely, I have noticed she’s showing sounds of sprouting a longer coat. Man, I have Do it Yourself Coat Envy! Maybe I’ll grow a beard. Just like Polly.
From here on out, posts will be fewer and farther between. Once in Newfoundland, internet access will be harder to find.
(Map Note: the map shows our general location. Polly and I have come so far north, evenings, we hear loons instead of whip-poor-wills.)
Been following you online for few days…What part of Nfld are you travelling through…We live in Deer Lake and would love to meet you both…Let us know your planned route and we may be able to arrange something…Conway Locke
Howdy Conway. Great hearing from you. Hey, catching up with you in Deer Lake might just work out. Mule Polly and I are currently (Tue 11p) on the Sydney/Port Aux Basque ferry. I’ll be working my way up toward St Anthony Wednesday morning. Drop me an email at my RiverEarth.com “Contact” tab. Maybe you can give me some iceberg hunting tips. Cheers! Bernie
Hi Conway. It’s Wednesday 7:30a. I’ve arrived in Port Aux Basques. I’m fueling up and heading toward Deer Lake on my way to St Anthony. I’ll see if I can find you on the way through town. Cheers. Bernie
Hi Conway. It’s Wednesday noon. Mule Polly and I have knocked off for the day just outside Corner Brook. Whew, just couldn’t drive any more. I’ll be passing through Deer Creek tomorrow (Thur) morning. Heading to St Anthony. Give me a shout if you want to catch up for a quick gam. Cheers! Bernie
Hey Bernie just got to check your site..when going through Deer Lake I’d love to meet up with you…actually if we knew where you are staying tonite we would travel there and meet up tonite…Conway
