East Tour Diary Day 7

At 7.45am morning class Dougie confirmed a tour of St. John’s from 9 to 10.30am with hotel checkout by 12 noon and onto the bus which will be leaving at 12.20pm to take us to the airport for our flight back to Halifax. The Sherrif advised their were several Tammie candidates, but after assembling previous wearers and potential wearers Doug Wilson just pipped the others! The Sherrif then turned to face the other tourists and fined them all! We were given the tour of St. John’s which was interesting although by the time we reached one of the highlights Signal Hill the fog had closed in and no near or distant viewpoints were visible.

We arrived at the airport and while going through security we discovered that a phone left on the bus turned out to belonged to George Paterson. Most had lunch and a couple of drinks before boarding the plane which was scheduled to leave for Halifax at 4pm, but actually departed at 4.45pm. At one point it looked as if the flight may have been cancelled due to dense fog, but fortunately cleared in time. In baggage reclaim three of our bags and Jim Kavanagh’s bags hadn’t made it on to the plane – the saga continues! We booked back into our hotel and enjoyed an evening meal after which the majority retired following a tiring day.
