|And so the road trip begins...Nova Scotia or bust!|
Along the way we stopped at a mutual friend's house and visited. They live in North Carolina and they have chickens! Sadie thought the chickens were great and tried to get them to fly out of their coop and play with her but we had to put Sadie in her own cage aka the sun porch. She sat there and watched those chickens with great intensity. It was her favorite part of the trip.
|It is hard work watching chickens, it makes your head heavy.|
|Here I am in Newark with Marathon Girl and my LG, enjoying the neighborhood but not the heat!|
|half of the food we were served|
After consuming mass quantities of food in a Spanish restaurant we said goodbye to my LG and watched her ride off into the dark on the train. It was totally worth the NJ Turnpike drive! The next day was not too bad but it was long! To pass the time the passengers played games drawing pictures and playing word games on phones and iPads...comments heard while driving were, "A man eating a baby on a plate?" "yes, cannibal!" We also listened to Catching Fire, the second in the Hunger Games trilogy. Both were great ways to pass the time! We did stop in one of my favorite places....the New Hampshire Liquor Store!
Apparently escaping the heat of the south took a little longer than expected. We traveled through the northeast during a heatwave. Temperatures were over 100 in New Jersey, over 95 in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Finally, when we made it to Maine we were blessed with lower temperatures. "Be careful what you wish for", they say. Ever since we arrived here in Nova Scotia, we have had rain, clouds, cool temperatures and beautiful sunsets like this.....
My excitement over sharing our little part of heaven with my friends has been tempered a bit. The sun has not shone it's face since we arrived. My house guests are beginning to question their decision to stay for a week. I can only hope they are treated to at least one day like this....
