Wheel Dip in St. John's Newfoundland
The first leg of Mary Ann's Journey is now complete. This post is a bit late but as they say better late than never. I've been so busy meeting new friends, relatives, driving, taking photos and videos it's not easy to always keep up to date. I can't stress enough that keeping up to date is easy with Polarsteps, which I update on a live as it happens updates. You can follow me simply by clicking on this link: https://www.polarsteps.com/harveysoicher/1873708-mary-ann-s-electric-drive
Best however is to go to the Polarsteps section of the website and sign up so you can get updated with notifications as I travel. You can also get set up for your own travels. It's so easy to do and fun as well.
Above are some photos of St. John's, Signal Hill, the Iceberg Beer from Quidi Vidi Brewery, Cape Spear the furthest east point of Canada. I did shoot a time lapse video at sunrise and you can see it by clicking here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyF00W9cZxk&list=UU-pAOVibCs19ZSeAbqOMsvQ&index=5
I also did a video of a tour of Signal Hill which you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rx-bEe92NHk&list=UU-pAOVibCs19ZSeAbqOMsvQ&index=4
The wheel dip into the Atlantic was done right opposite the Quidi Vidi Brewry and you can see the wheels were dipped well.
During the Wheel Dip, Meg Roberts a reporter from CBC in St. John's did an interview with me on location and here is her report from Yahoo news originating from the CBC Website. https://ca.yahoo.com/news/man-completes-cross-canada-electric-133520492.html
I was also invited the following Monday which was my last day in St. John's to be interviewed by Arianna Kelland of the CBC Radio St. John's morning show. It was a great experience and so much fun to be in the studio and wear the headphones. The interview lasted 7 minutes!
Right after the interview I met up with Dan Mathews of Audi St. John's. It was great to connect with him as I missed seeing him when I first came to St. John's on the Friday before.
He is a strong believer in the future of Electric Vehicles.
I then headed to take my ferry back to Sydney and start my journey home. Below are some photos. The ship is at the very top of the page.
Above is the Ferry as well as some new friends that kept me company on the whole 18 hour sailing. There names are Bev and Garry. They were wonderful to hang out with.
Lots more to come but I have to go now as I'm checking out Washington DC where I am now!
