Driving Not Writing

We had two looonnng days on Monday and Tuesday – trying to reach New Brunswick by Tuesday evening so that we could get to the lawyer on Wednesday.

Monday had a lot of fun events but also a lot of driving. We didn’t reach Ottawa until nearly midnight. The picture below comes from one of our road stops. 🙂 My sister and son both benefited from that – although they don’t know it yet. Honour’s brother got birthday wishes. I only wish there had been room in the car and my carry-on bag for that moose!

Tuesday was northern Ontario: Ottawa to Edmunston. Edmunston was the first stopping point we reached before the sun set, although just barely. Tuesday was another day when we realized that there is a lot of not much there in huge stretches of Canada. When you read the post about Tuesday you will see that we had to rely on our own sense of humor for that stretch. I have wondered often on this trip if anyone else would find us as hilarious as we find ourselves, or if this is a case of leaving the ventilation system on recycle for too long. What you see below is Quebec’s idea of mountains. Now that I have seen the west coast, I too can be snarky about anything less than the Rockies.

Wednesday was Edmunston to Saint George, a mere 300 or so kilometers. At this point anything less than 800 km is akin to driving around the block. We reached Saint Andrew by the Sea. The tide is out, but this is the Bay of Fundy. New Brunswick is gorgeous, simply gorgeous.

Tomorrow (Thursday) we actually reach Campobello Island and see the house for the first time. With any luck, I’ll have time to do some writing and share some of the really fun things we saw on the way.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!
