Adios 2022

   I have posted 68 times on this site this year, 69 if I get this finished and published before the clock strikes midnight on Dec. 31st, 2022. That’s better than once a week and I think I did right by you this year, my loyal reader, atonement for the silence you endured the last […]

My First Thought Was... Ep1

   I have a daily routine, one developed since I stopped working. It involves a bathroom, a pot of coffee, more bathroom visits, and my computer, not in the bathroom. Sitting at my desk, I surf the www, usually in the same order. I check e-mail, Facebook, where I look to see if Ginger is […]

And It's Only Friday...

   This week was one of those weeks where Chinese-Canadian relations took a step. Forward, backward, or sideways, I’m not quite sure. In one week, we (Canada) arrested a man for spying on behalf of the government of China, and the Prime Minister of Canada pissed the President of China off. According to the RCMP, […]

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 […]

Dawn

  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 […]

Nature vs Nurture

   Anyone who knows me well, knows what a nature fanatic I am. My dad used to take us out for a Sunday drive, which was always into the county side. He would be pointing out animals and birds, and we three kids would be scanning the area to see whatever it was first. I […]

   Day 1– You would think that after months of planning, bookings, and conversations regarding our Gypsy experiment, we would be ready to bolt first thing in the morning. Oh, we bolted… three different times! We obviously weren’t as prepared as we thought we were. First it is the dirty windshield to clean, back to […]
