Day 10 – Best Trip Of Your Life!
December is just FLYING by! We’re half way through the month and in just 10 days it will be Christmas, and then EEK 2019 is just around the corner. I’ve been busy, busy, busy. I’ve been baking tons – made yet another batch of cookies and walked all the way to and from the store today. STILL have one final (ha!) round of baking tomorrow for my bake exchange at work on Monday. Then gift shopping, and finishing up some knitted gifts, PLUS a new found obsession with Ru Paul’s Drag Race. Phew! I could use a vacation. Today’s prompt is about just that!
Growing up, my family travelled from coast to coast in Canada in an RV, (I’ve been everywhere but Newfoundland and the Territories!) and I have incredibly fond memories of visiting a good chunk of this very very big, very very pretty place. My favourite trip of all time has to be when my parents, brother, and cousins travelled to visit my family in Nova Scotia!
We spent two weeks driving over 3,500 kilometers (2,000 miles for you American folks!) stopping at all sorts of random campsites, poutine shops, a monastery, tried to escape rush hour Montreal in a 35 foot long RV, and making many wrong turns to get to the little Nova Scotia town of Parrsboro.
Parrsboro is a cute little seaside town surrounded by oceans, cliffs, and blueberry farms, and is known for having the highest tides in the world! It’s just a very different way of life over there – life moves slow and everyone in town knows everybody else, which is SO different from how hectic life is now. I remember watching the tide come in for the first time ever and falling in LOVE and never wanting to leave.
I hope to one day go back, and perhaps when I’m an old lady I’ll buy one of the cute little character homes by the sea and paint it PINK as well!
