Argentia, NL to North Sydney, NS

Newfoundland has been a high point of this journey. Three weeks on the island was just not enough time. There are major areas we did not get to see including the Bonaventure peninsula. We were sad to leave. 

To depart we took the ferry from Argentia in Newfoundland to North Sydney in Nova Scotia. Argentia is adjacent to Placentia, which was an important fishing port (Plaisance) for the French in the 17th and 18th century. The ferry is modern and well equipped. We had a deluxe berth which was functional but spacious. A particularly good buffet dinner and off to bed early.
