Leading Tickles

We left Grand-Falls behind today. Not the most impressive town, but has what you need and it kept us safe through our little hurricane episode. We were happy to venture back out into this pretty province with no threats of bad weather. Our Brigus friends, Rick and Roberta, made it through the...

Lots of work

Yesterday we tried out another restaurant – we’re pretty much on a mission to try as many of the taverns and places as possible. It’s one of the reasons we’re here – we are weighing our options for our wedding reception. There is one more contender that we need...

Sunny Days

The first thing we noticed about Tolo is, it’s quiet. People are going about their day, roads are relatively quiet and the tourists have yet to fully invade the town. We feel for the business owners though because they are struggling more than usual to fill their restaurants, hotels and...

Slow Drive South

We left Soldotna this morning, staying in the Fred Meyers parking lot after arriving in the dark last night. They seem to really encourage overnight parking, it’s practically a campsite. We left early and made it to after a slow drive down the coast Homer. I must say, generally the pull...

It will work out

We’ve been trying to get to the Keys for a few days now but it just hasn’t worked out. We were determined, today was the day – and it was, although our actual driving only started at 4pm. From what we’ve learned about the Keys, this could be quite a dangerous choice....

Quirky A1A

I was feeling pretty sick today, I’m not quite sure what it was but it started with a headache last night and all I felt like doing was sleeping. So I did. Meanwhile, Andrew drove us south the whole way down the A1A highway (the eastern Florida coastal highway). From what I saw, it was...

Pelican Mardi Gras

We woke up this morning and headed to the nearby lake called the ‘Manatee Pocket’ in hopes we would potentially find a good spot to use our wet suits. What we found was Sandsprit Park which we was actually a large busy boat launch.  It was unlikely there would be any...

Beach beauty

As I said, last night we parked at a boat launch and so we awoke this morning to the most beautiful view.  I would say that if we had paid for a site last night at Sebastian Inlet State Park we would not have been so privileged. We still wanted to to return back because we had some...

A day at the beach (...

So we continued to drive out of Quebec and into Maine – crossing a very quiet little border into the USA.  Border patrol was somewhat interesting – one of the first things the officer said was she was half expecting Scooby Doo to step out of the van. Meanwhile there is a second...
