have no interest in trailers at this point...but

I have thought about that several times now...life does change...I've always thought if I couldn't ride 2 wheels I'd get a Miata...but who knows..

When yer on the edge of the earth you can charge $15.95 for this breakfast.



Not to worry, though. It includes the OJ and a piping hot cup of instant coffee.

Got a ferry to catch today.

We'll make the best of today, though.

My pleasure.

On the boat, nearing reality.

Awful nice if them to have the complimentary sea sick meds all wrapped up on the wall for us like that.



Makes ya feel a little less self conscience about it above deck.

A little exploring around Argentia while waiting for the boat. Pretty cool stuff around there.

Scheduled to land in North Sydney at 9:30 local time. Got a few days to get home. Sounds like a weather check wouldn't hurt.
