Last night we couldn’t find a hydro hook up, so we ran the generator for a while before going to sleep. Once the generator was shut off, the RV cooled down pretty fast. It wasn’t too bad, but I woke up pretty cold. My parents were fine, but I didn’t have any body heat to help.

When we start driving into Fundy Bay National Park, we actually came through some flurries. I hope this cold front doesn’t last long! It was another rainy day, but the views around Fundy and Hopewell Rocks were amazing. I’ll be sure to post a few photos soon.

The sun finally poked through about an hour from the Newfoundland ferry. It’s been a long time since I have been out East. Some of the scenery is phenominal.

I was able to get some more posters printed from a Staples in Nova Scotia. Staples has been great for donating their printing services.

When we finally reached the ferry terminal, we were about 4 hours early. So I took the opportunity to strap on the blades and give my legs a quick stretch. It didn’t last too long, though because I was quickly chased down by a ferry employee who casually pointed to a sign indicating “No Pedestrians Past This Point”. Oh well. At least I was on the skates long enough to snap a couple pictures!

While waiting to board the ferry, we met a couple from Conception Bay (near St. John’s). Really nice people. After talking to them and giving them a couple posters, I think I may alter my route slightly so I can skate through their area.

I’m now on the midnight ferry to Newfoundland. We have about 6 hours until we reach land, but the Canucks game just started, so that should kill a few hours for me. I’m guessing I’ll fall asleep pretty soon, though.
