The ferry ride from North Sydney to Argentia was pretty good. The ferry did move about at times but it was never rough. The rough part was trying to sleep. For those people with enough foresight to book ahead they can get a sleeping berth. Although I hear they are expensive. And for those people who aren't really sure they are going to be on which sailing, such as cycle tourists there are reclining chairs. The reclining chair looks like a chair from an airplane and doesn't, in my opinion, recline enough. The chair lets you slouch which isn't a very comfortable position for sleeping in. So I spent the night slouching and drifting off. I woke up at 6 and decided to get up and see what was for breakfast but the restaurant wasn't going to open for a couple more hours. I was starving too. So I settled for a muffin wrapped in a plastic bag and some orange juice. I got into the restaurant for the buffet, which was just okay, and ate with John who I met at the terminal in North Sydney. John works at Memorial University in St. John's and had just spent the weekend riding his bike around Cape Breton with a big group of others. This was organized by a tour company and happens yearly. We met back in the lounge and joined other cyclists we had also met yesterday. William and Alex who were also about to finish their ride across Canada and Steven who was touring about P.E.I. and the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island. It certainly helped the time go by. We parted our ways at the terminal in Argentia. The young guys, Alex, William and Steven wanted to get as far down the road as possible so that they could spend as much time as possible in St. John's so off they went. John was getting picked up by his wife, lucky guy. And me. I wanted to make a trip into Placentia to get groceries and then get down the road to Fitzgerald's Big Pond Park and camp there. My trip to St. John's will be about 120km tomorrow. The owner of the park here had heard that it was going to be a rainy and windy night so she suggested I stay in their 10 X 10 foot tarped shed. I agreed. So here I am right now typing this out with the rain coming down so hard on the tarped roof I can hardly hear myself think. But I'm dry. And I can stand up and walk around. Well I better get some sleep. It's an exciting day tomorrow. The last leg of this ride across Canada. And thanks again John for your local knowledge and conversation. It's people like yourself that have made my trip enjoyable.
