You Won't Be Disappointed

“Budda Bing Shrimp”- appetizer- $12Cdn.  Doryman Pub and Grill, Cheticamp NS. Served grilled with spicy/sweet glaze. “Order 2!” “Lobster Mushroom Caps”- appetizer- $21.50Cdn. La Coast, Shediac NB. Served in garlic-butter and with garlic-bread. “Awesome” I’m not much a reviewer, probably because I’m long-winded. But occasionally I will do a little free promo work because certain […]

Seagulls And Schooners

   There was plenty of down-time during our road trip. Time spent sitting sipping a beverage, with no place to be and no time to be there at. I would call it leisure time. The only real decision to be made was what and where to eat. Some places we were didn’t offer many choices, […]

Down With History

   The road trip to Canada’s eastern provinces, aside from going somewhere we’d never been before, was to see first-hand the birth place of our nation. To learn more about the region and its history. This meant stopping at historical sites, museums, and roadside plaques. Historical sites and museum give you a heads-up long before […]

Turn Left In One Kilometre

   If it’s Wednesday this must be…? Where am I??? This is day twenty-two and the scheduled plan went out the window five days ago when we decided to go gypsy, cancel all our reservations from yesterday forward, so we could return to the West Point Lighthouse Inn and Museum in Prince Edward Island for […]


  Everyone travels different. Most seem to travel from one destination to the next destination, without ever noticing what they missed. It’s how I have always travelled, until this little odyssey. Driving through the Atlantic provinces of Canada has been at a slow ‘mosey.’ We’ve stopped to smell so many roses that my allergies are […]

Where's I'm to...

I’m on adventure and unlike sitting on The Playa, my hands are on the wheel and not on a keyboard. So I thought I would share a few of the places I’ve been in the last week. This is the Hotel Acadia in Quebec City. This is where I paid the bill for our hotel […]



   The road trip was the solution to an awkward dilemma. When they were first informed that I was ill, my brother and his family from Ottawa, wanted to come out and see me immediately. My initial response was “no way.” I looked like crap and felt worse. I didn’t want to see anyone at […]

Treasure Hunt

   Ten days to go before we, Honey and I, embark on our odyssey towards the Outer Banks. Yes, that stretches the truth to its outer banks, but we are headed in that general direction. There are zero plans of going there, it would involve a boat and probably bad weather. I just thought it […]


   Honey and I hit the road in a few short weeks. At this point in time, Honey’s lists have lists. I am always asking my wife to be sure to add blah, blah to a pre-trip list, or helping her remember an item she had mentioned in the kitchen. One she needed to add […]

Other People

   Travel these days is full of challenges. Getting from here to there, no matter your mode of transportation, is costly and time consuming, and comes with no guarantee you will actually reach your destination. It wouldn’t surprise me if you asked someone how they spent their holiday weekend the answer might be A) Stuck […]
