Wednesday was lining up to be more of the same. Mechanical problems grounded our plane. But we finally got into the air in chicago. we got to portland ME and our car arrived 15 minutes later. A mad dash across New Brunswick and Nova Scotia but we arrived at the ferry 6 hours late. Options: rebook on the Friday night ferry or purchase a new passage on the 2345 weds ferry. The travel gods smiled, they just let us on the ferry. Another mad dash across the island and we have arrived in St Johns, Newfoundland.
