This ain't Big Bike Friendly.

Day the first. Onto the ferry and up to Corner Brook.

The ferry loads two hours before embarking, at minimum. Don't piss around, or expect preferential treatment. This is a commercial venture, and they expect you to be there on the numbers. When you see them loading the boat, you'll understand why.

If you're trailering up, there is parking at 15-17 Forrest, North Sydney, NS. You can see the ferry from there, it's only a few hundred yards away from the Marine Atlantic dock. For $15.00 the first day and $7.50 each day thereafter, you can park in a good lot. No one will touch your stuff. If you're paranoid, you can try to contact A&L Parking at 902-561-0011, but they don't answer the phone, nor is there a pen to fill out the form. Luckily, we found a pencil and filled out the papers. Bring a pen and cash. They accept US dollars, which becomes increasingly difficult as one progresses north.

When we got back, the car, van, and trailers were exactly as we left them. The wet tent I'd left in the back of the van had dried out without mold or mildew, give thanks.

Here's how the MS Atlantic Vision appears from Forrest Street, lit up like a pinball machine.

Sorry for the mud on the lens.

We are directed to our berth, which rapidly assumes the odor of a locker room and the cultural character of a frat house.
