Goodbye Newfoundland!

...but hopefully it will only be Au Revoir and not Farewell as I was made to feel as if it was a second home.    The help and hospitality I received while crossing The Rock was totally overwhelming, and I will treasure many precious memories of my time there.  Many many thanks to everyone who helped me on my way - I could not have done it without you!

I had a lovely surprise on the ferry as John Carter's son Captain Colin Carter was captaining the ferry we were travelling on, and arranged for me to have a complimentary cabin.  It was the icing on the cake of my Newfoundland crossing success to find I had been given the owner's suite with shower, TV, sofa, double bed and view out over the prow, all of which I made good use of. 
Loving the towel bunny....

We rode up to Cabresto Ridge Equestrian Centre at Coxheath , where I have been staying courtesy of Angela Mercer Penny for a couple of days while Lady has a rest and I plan the next leg.   Angela's parents Mike and Peggy have taken me into their home and have been spoiling me.
