One Last Trip

With the winter season imminent, the 2015 road trip season was coming to an end.  We had driven to the west coast and driven to the east coast.  I had thought about driving to the north border of Ontario, but with my little car it was an expedition beyond my abilities.   And so we […]

Maine

September 13, 2015 Our last day in Alma started out rainy so nix the last few trails. We had a nice breakfast at the Octopus Garden again. And Kelly’s Bake Shop was finally open so I picked up some of their famous sticky buns and some peanut butter balls. So tasty. And I know how […]

New Hampshire

September 14, 2015 Well it rained all night last night and well into the morning. Needless to say I got very little sleep. And sharing a twin bed with three dogs; it’s like a real life version of Tetris. We stopped at a cute cafe just down the street and I ordered a Wake Me […]

The Bay of Fundy

September 12, 2015 Today we did something I have never done on a road trip: we stayed put. I mean I thought about moving on after a few hikes. I thought about camping in the park. The weather was just too nice for a few trails, especially after the almost non-stop rain that we had […]

To the Bay

September 11, 2015 The east coast had next to no rain this year.  And then I showed up. The rain started over night and pretty much continued all day.  I made my own sunshine with a fantastic cup of coffee and a decent cranberry lemon scone at one of the coolest shops I have ever […]

Along the Cabot Trail

September 10, 2015 We had a leisurely wake up this morning. A nice long walk on the beach. And out we go. We stopped at a few of the hiking spots off the trail. One hike was a bit longer than I planned when I missed a turn in the trail. Ooooops.  At least I […]

A Change of Plans

Through Quebec

September 8, 2015 Day two on our trip east. I had wonderful sleep at the hotel. Now breakfast posed a bit of a challenge. See, you have to sign paperwork saying you won’t leave the dogs alone in the room. And when I checked in, they were quite emphatic about that. So running to grab […]

But Not For Long…

September 7, 2015 What’s a girl to do when she has a vacation so soon after a western cross country road trip? Go on another one of course. I mean, why unpack everything?  We were home just long enough to clean the tent, do the laundry, and re-stock our food supplies. Standard road trip rules would […]

Nature Challenge: Day 7

This photo was taken on Schooners Beach in the Pacific Rim National Park just outside of Tofino, British Columbia.  This was the farthest point west that we could drive to in Canada and we had somehow managed to wander our way there. This is the last of seven posts in response to becomingduetsch  7-Day Nature Photo Challenge Series. […]
