Day 9: Leaving Cape Breton-Headed To Newfoundland ~ July 9th, 2009

Today we left Cape Breton. Jamie’s parents left early, long before we did. I didnt even manage to get out of the tent to say goodbye to them because I was so upset about Riley. Her eye this morning was still swollen almost shut. I sat inside the tent with her, keeping her out of the sun as long as I could before we had to start packing up to leave. We headed out about 1pm and headed to the Newfoundland Ferry. When we got there I gave Riley some Benedryl (going on my assumption that the swelling was due to some allergic reaction to the bites) and within a couple hours her face was almost back to normal. YAY! The ferry left North Sydney at 3:30pm Nova Scotia time and docked in Port Aux Basques, Newfoundland at about 9pm. There was lots for the kids to do on the boat. We had a nice supper, the little ones played in the playroom, Lincoln went to the arcade, there were movies to watch, and shops to look around in. When we got to Newfoundland we still had a 5 hour drive ahead of us but the kids slept most of the way. We got to my dads around 2 am and stayed awake just long enough to say hello and then went to bed. My camera died just after we got off the boat so I didnt get any pics after that point, but here are the ones from the rest of the day.
