Starting to get excited about the trip to Newfoundland in July leaving home on July 4th and crossing the straight from North Sidney to Port aux Basque on July 5th . If the schedule doesn't change we are booked to sail on the new Marine Atlantic Ferry, "Atlantic Vision" which just went into service this spring, it is reported to be very luxurious. We have reservations for a cottage in Isle aux Morts for the first night which is only a 15 to 20 minute drive from the ferry landing. Next day we are taking a small passenger ferry to Grand Bruit a small out port up the coast with a population of 57, no roads and no cars. We have a cottage rented there for two nights and I have a feeling it is going to be one of the highlights of the trip. The lady who runs the cottages is going to serve us meals in her home.
