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!Arriving at the Newfoundland ferry terminal came with a great sense of accomplishment. This is the last leg of our journey, 900 km to go.
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.We 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.
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!
