Cruise - Canadian Ports Of Call

The Canadian leg of the trip took in Saint John (Foggy and not much for tourists there), Halifax (better for most - great for me - see Taz Records Post), Quebec (beautiful architecture and scenery but shops full of tourist tat), and St John's in Newfoundland.

The Canadians were lovely and very welcoming (particularly in St John's where they have missed one or two ships this season due to bad weather and the narrow entrance to the harbour).  The organised tour we went on in Quebec was taken by a very chic madamoiselle who was very knowledgable but hadn't quite appreciated the audience was British and her history was only the french version(!) 

Goodbye St John's, Newfoundland and Canada - and thank you St John's for the send-off - muskets n'all

How did they sail Arcadia through that small gap?
