It was a windy, rainy day on Sunday, although it did clear up towards the end of the afternoon. The temperature actually went up to 12C (54F) but it didn’t feel that warm because of the wind and rain. We actually went to the mall for a couple of hours just to wander around somewhere warm. Didn’t buy a thing though!
And, we did a little bit of planning for the next week or ten days. Time to go exploring! I loaded the new MS Streets and Trips GPS edition that we won from Sam and Donna’s contest, and spent some time trying to figure out the software. Yes, I’m a guy, so I haven’t read the instructions yet! There are some things I can’t quite figure out, so I may have to do some reading.
Our first destination...it's only 195 kms (121 miles) but it'll probably take us 3 days to get there!
We’re going to head to what they call the “Digby Neck”, a stretch of land that goes to
Brier Island in the Bay of Fundy. We need to take two ferries to get to the island, and at this time of year we’ll probably be the only ones there! Should be no problem finding boondocking spots. It’s about 195 kms (121 miles) to get there, so we should be there sometime Wednesday! We like to take our time! I wonder if our new "mi-fi" device will find a cell signal to get us on the internet there...
But before we leave, we need to pick up a batch of wine that we made at one of those “brew it yourself” places. $110 for 23 litres, so that’s not bad. We don’t bottle it, we store it in the large bags that the juice comes in because it’s easier than trying to figure out what to do with 23 bottles of wine in a motorhome. And, we need to fill up with propane because the tank is just about dry again. And we need to pick up some groceries. Also, Justin's cousin has said that we can park the car at her place while we’re gone.
We did manage to go for a walk yesterday. Oh, and it's Whiskey's birthday today! Happy 15th birthday Whiskey!
