I am booking only my first three hotels in advance. After I get into Nova Scotia it will depend on how I am doing as to where I will want to stay from Day 4 onwards. Day 1 is obviously in St John's at this rather nice wee place on Signal Hill (photo) . I then drive to Deer Lake (400 miles) on the 6th and it'll be an early start to drive down to the ferry on the morning of the 7th. En route to Deer Lake I am hoping to pop into the Aviation Museum at Gander and, as there is a strong connection between Gander, Prestwick and Arran, I've also written today to the Royal Canadian Air Force at Gander to see if I can meet up with anyone there, but we'll see what comes of that if it's possible.
