Day 49: Bras d’Or to Codroy Valley Campground 64km

I woke up to the sound of heavy rain. I had a thought as I sat in bed, “Wow God parted the Red Sea for Moses, perhaps God would stop the rain by the time we start.”

Mark had breakfast ready for us at 6:30 am. We were ready to hit the road at 8:00 am, the rain stopped.

Vic (far left) from the Velo Cape Breton joined us and rode to the ferry terminal a short 21km ride. Mark (far right) went to the terminal also, not on the bike.  Thank you Mark and Pam for your wonderful hospitality!DSC_7097Arriving at the Newfoundland ferry terminal came with a great sense of accomplishment. This is the last leg of our journey, 900 km to go.DSC_7153

The ferry ride was 6 hours 15 minutes and the sea gave us a good rock and roll. DSC_7179This is what we hope to see of St. Johns…DSC_7196The ride rocked me to sleep. The passenger area was really nice!DSC_7170

Here’s Marianne Lin from Barrie encouraging us on our way! We actually saw her after arriving in Newfoundland also.  She was a great encouragement, so excited about what we are attempting.DSC_7173We had a wet and windy welcome to Newfoundland. The treeless windblown land scape near the terminal was striking. Our short ride gave us a taste of what might be to come, long rolling hills.DSC_7224

We arrived at our camp site at 8 pm. As I write this a thunder and lightning storm is echoing around us and a heavy rain is pounding down on our RV. It sure is nice to be in doors is a comfortable dry motor home. Hard to believe we are in Newfoundland!
