Headed off on our first post coivd-ish trip
North Sydney, Nova Scotia
So, I will start by saying we are now a few days into our trip but due to us having a slow morning and people asking for updates, Im taking a few minutes to create a blog. So, the first few days will be a bit more recreation rather than orginal.
'Today" we got up and left the house around 7:45 for the Wood Islands Ferry and got on no problem and had our first nice ferry ride.
We then got off the ferry and drove about 3 hours to the north sydney ferry. The loading procedure there was not as smooth. It took a very long time and we ended up behind a bunch of tied down motor bikes. We were in the last couple rows to be loaded, so we trudged up the stairs and dropped our bags in our room.
We then headed for some food. There was a buffet restraunt and a a la carte. We ended up at the buffet. The price was about what you would expect for a buffet. The food was better than I expect but not amazing. It was better than what I expected from a restraunt with a captive audience. While we were eating we took off a little after 6 rather than 530pm.
After supper we had a bit of a walk around. We saw the lounge with couches, comfy chairs and a guy playing country music. We listen to a song but then decided to go back to our room where we showered, and folded up the two upper bunks and got cozy for the night.
Once we were settled we went to start the computer to stream a movie. No wifi. Trapper called down and they said only on deck 7 (we were deck 8). Trapper took the computer and went down to download a movie.... She sid that when she got there people just laughed at her.... So, we turned on a podcast and I was a sleep with in minutes. I only made it to 830pm... but I had been saying all week I cant wait to get on the boat and sleep as we had been quite busy all week.
We didn't wake up until 630. We had picnic breakfast in our cabin and got ready to go. We walked around the decks and particularly outside watching what may have been whales and eventually watching docking procedures. We got off in the first couple dozen cars. More on the next blog.
