Saturday, August 8, 2009 - Thank you, thank you, thank you...

I feel a bit dishonest posting this, being as how we have returned now, safe and sound, to Cape Breton. But there simply wasn't time to post before we pulled out of the driveway yesterday afternoon, what with the people coming to look for the key to the hall, phone calls from old friends, blueberry picking, and "Newfoundland style" pancakes. Somehow, though, we managed to fit everyone - and our stuff - into the van and the car and make our way out the Witless Bay Line to the TCH and on to Argentia. Amidst the sadness of departures, there was a moment of bliss when Max found Jacob's missing sandals - where else - in the liquor cabinet. Jacob narrowly escaped having to make the ferry trek in his rubber boots.

And speaking of the ferry trek, a bit of a bumpy ride this time. With ten of us squeezed in a four person cabin, the air was pretty rank. The two pukers and two poopers didn't help much.

But we left so thankful for a great time, for our incredible hosts, for the weather and the food and the water and, most importantly, the people. Until next time...
