Meat Cove was beautiful. We drove in our car and spent part of the day then went back to our motel.

Haven't been out East for several years - hope to return soon. Wonderful driving roads out there (for sporty cars - not RVs!).

Cabot Trail was great - weather was cool so no crowds or traffic when we visited. We walked the Skyline Trail and from the end vantage point we saw eagles above and whales below.

We loved PEI.

NS and PEI scenery always stunning, most people incredibly friendly.

Halifax, NS is a wonderful city to visit. Lots of great restaurants and things to do.

In the case of the WALMART mentioned, at Sherbrooke, Quebec, I took the car off because we were there for three days.

When just overnighting the MINI was left on the rig.

I use past tense because HEATH and MARY BOYER of Windham, Vermont became the new owners of the splendid rig last September.

Maybe they'll be heading for Newfoundland come spring or summer.

We are planning on taking our 25' 2009 classic to NS and the ferry over to NF in July of this year. I don't like making reservations due to we have to be somewhere on time then. Can we do this trip though NS and NF without? How about the ferry over to NF from NS, do we need to make reservations, did you book a cabin or just a seat? Its looks like it only 6 to 8 hours on the ferry.

Reservations from North Sydney, NS, to Port aux Basques, NF, are recommended during the short summer traveling season. Trip takes 5 to 6 hours. There's another ferry N. Sydney to Argentia on the east coast of NF, a longer ferry trip and only in the summer. I know little about it except reservations are also recommended. I don't like having to make reservations because I feel tied down, but sometimes it is what you have to do. A 3rd option is a ferry from Ste. Barbe on NF's Northern Penn. to Quebec. It is a short trip and that's all I know.

The first one seems to be the most commonly used.

For more on NF, see this thread:

Julie Bob,

For North Sydney to Port aux Basque you don't need a reservation unless you are the type of people who worry without one.

I don't like the stress of having to be somewhere at a certain time.

If you miss a sailing you can hang around the docks for the next one. That's part of the fun of trailering.
