Our boat ride from NL to NS

I realize that I haven't blogged since we moved, and I know exactly why. Because I am busy now. A good busy. Now I spend my free time checking out things to do in our town, or shopping for stuff for our new house, or hanging out with friends or family. So I probably won't blog nearly so much, except for when the mood strikes. I still love looking at old posts from the past few years, so I'll try to keep things updated a bit. 

These are pics from our boat ride when we left Newfoundland. The boat left from Argentia, which is only an hour and a half from our old house. The boat ride is 14 hours long, plus a few hours before to get in line, park, etc. 

You have to park your car in the line a few hours early, so we went in to the building to play and run around a bit. There is not much more snacks, so definitely bring your own.

We got dude a tiny boat at the gift shop. He had been excited about this boat ride for months.

Chilling in the ferry terminal. We were so impressed with how organized the whole thing was. You are not supposed to bring plants from NL to the mainland, but we explained to the lady that our little bonsai tree was given to Jon by me when we first started dating and it was super important to us, and she let it go since the plant had never touched the ground in NL.

Once we got on the boat we went straight to our cabin, which had two sets of bunk beds. Cohen and I each took a bottom one, and Jon slept on a top bunk. The beds were comfy and clean, and the washroom was tiny. We all slept great, though the constant rocking back and forth took a little getting used to.

For supper that night we went to the kinda fancy restaurant on board, where we had awesome meals. Jon had halibut that the waiter said was freshly caught that day. The service was great. Cohen was so tired that he was falling asleep at the table.

We let him watch a few shows while laying in bed since it was still so light out at bedtime around 8. We then all had to go to sleep because of the close quarters.

The morning breakfast situation was a little weird. We found these tiny boxes of cereal and also yogurt, and then later a huge buffet opened with all kinds of breakfast food. All together things were really good on the boat. There was also an arcade and lots of areas to play cards or color.

We had such a great time on the boat!! I would highly recommend taking the longer ferry to anyone with smaller kids who will sleep in a twin bed.
