visit around there. Stop at the grocery store to restock on 'double blueberry' ice cream Justin picked up the other day. He is in LOVE with it. C'est de la crème glacée de Coaticook. We drive down to the ferry and I pop into the ticket office. They are all business there and not the friendliest. She gets all my info (size of unit, full name of all of us) and then charges my credit card. So I ask "We made it on the ferry?" Her answer is "You should be ok". Another lady tells us to line up outside in lanes 1 & 2 with the trucks. We are the first in line no2 so we don't really know how they would pull us off
if we didn't make it on. We have a good 1.5hrs to waste in the truck waiting in line so we pull out UNO and have fun. James sleeps for the most part of the waiting. We are set to make this an easy ferry. We only bring one extra bag and decide that we don't need James' stroller. Super smooth. We stop at the gift shop to grab a sticker and head up to the cafeteria. Gaby met a little girl and they had fun for the length of the crossing. The girl is travelling with her mom to St Anthony to go to the dentist!!! Small things we take for granted. They live in Forteau and the one dentist is on holidays for 2 weeks and this is an emergency. We chit chatted with her mom. She has 3 kids. For her last 2 pregnancies, she had to spend 7 weeks in St Anthony's as she can't deliver in Labrador. They also have to go to the island for a pediatrician. We saw a couple get on the ferry with their BMW GS. Justin's dream is to cross the country on his. Maybe one day we can do that together. As we are going down to the car deck we spoke to them. They are from Georgia and have pretty much done all the states and most of Canada. We decide on going back to Port aux Choix to the campsite by the ocean. Wind is blowing but at least there it's not the crazy rain/hail we encountered last time we setup there.
