Ah some reliable Wifi I don't have to hike somewhere to use! One of those things you take for granted at home .......
Now what started out as a long time is now feeling very short! We have closed the Maritime loop and are now winding our way back to Alberta. Let me just say, if you haven't taken the time to check out any of the Maritime provinces - Do! They offer so much in terms of new landscapes, hospitality, delightful food and an easy going way of looking at life. There is a history here that we didn't really know much about before we went. It was so interesting to connect new dots all the way through the three provinces and how what happened there has influenced the shape of our country.
After my last blog we made our way down to Fundy National Park. Now is that something! The amount of water in 1 days tides at the Bay of Fundy are equal to 1 year and 9 months worth of water over Niagara Falls. Seriously! That's some amount of water. We got to see the Hopewell Rocks and walk the sea floor. The guide from the park was amazing! The almost 2 hours walk about flew by! All included in the $8.00 price of admission. As I like to say, our tax dollars at work for a most worthy experience! Saint John, N.B., is a city stepped in history and cool street scapes. It had a wonderful vibe and is on the list of 'come back to's'.
I can't even say enough about Quebec City!! Honestly what a beautiful place and just how much fun were the many patios and funky shops. The city is of course chock a block full of history too. The stuff we took at school and promptly forgot about. How wonderful to have it recalled in the place where things happened. Quebec City too is where virtually all my grandparents landed. What a sight it must have been with the old ramparts up on the rocks and the old town down front. It too would be grand to come back and spend more time soaking up the ambience!
We continue to enjoy each others company, make allowances for each other's foibles and appreciate what each of us brings to this journey. This continues to be one of the greatest delights. We have been shaking our individual and collective heads that towards the end of next week we will be home. The journey talked about and planned for years all over. The mental breaks are being applied and there's a glass of wine calling to savour all of this!
