[R] ggplot2: line plot with gaps in time axis

Hello, I'm trying to plot data that has gaps in the timeline because my data
only has the business day in it. When I do a line plot I get the data and
then a blank area where a line goes the tail of the last data point  to the
head of the next data point. Is there a way I can do a line plot where the
gaps are not plotted?

Thanks in advance,
