Day 18 : Missing moose.
Riviere du loup to Fredricton
In the morning my parents came to get me in my room, I slept really well that night, we got up and got dressed, then went for breakfast. Glorious breakfast. My parents had an indescribeble egg thingie migigie. It was a peice of toast with an egg and stuff on it, I’m at a lose for words… and I got french toast with berries and all that stuff ! any ways it was really yummy. I think that yummy is the word of the rip don’t you, I gues that meens we are having some good food eh !
We left this beautiful place for the road again, it was a little sad to be gone but the thoughts of a new place to see are very intriging. We went off to the roads, there are lots of nice views on the road now.
It’s time to speed my blogs up and only tell you the important stuff J. When we arrived in Fredricton we called John, a family friend who we plan on staying with so he could meet us and take us to his camp/ fishing resort. John told us to meet him at the Sobeys in 15 mins. Well the GPS told us where to go and we went there, 15 mins come and went, no John. Finally he called and asked us where we where, we told him the name of the mall we where at, turns out the GPS doesn’t tottaly know what he’s talking about, we where at the wrong Sobeys. John found us after a while. The good thing about getting lost in Fredricton is lil sis got to strech out a little in the grass while we waited.
What a journey, to truthfully tell you, John drives kinda fast and i twas a little tricky to follow him. But what a place, most of the drive was in a picturesque forest, we are hopefull about seing a moose, but no moose shows L.
We arrive at Johns camp and are greeted bye lobsters !!!! yummmmmmmm ! the view is really pretty of the river by Johns house, that’s what we call it because we can never remeber what it’s called, all I know is it starts with and M. Mmmmmm, any takers ?
We feasted on lobster, John, Silvie, Mama, Luc, lil sis and I. then we talked a lot and went to bed, BIG plans for tommorow, we hope to go to Mckloskies, the swaying bridge, the other camp…
Day 19 : Fredricton, Sight seeing
We woke up and had breakfast. And set off for a big day of getting around. First thing first, we had to see the much beloved Mckloskies, Johns fav store and a place to get every thing. It was much smaller then I expected, though supprisingly stocked up, It was a mix of a grocery store, liquor store, fishing supplies and about 50 other things J.
Next we went to the swaying bridge, a draw bridge over the river that is often good for spotting moose and bears. It really was kinda scary, it swayed a lot (Ex. swaying bridge) and reminded we of the capilano suspension bridge in Vancouver.
Then to John’s other camp. When we got there it was a Small cottege in the woods. We went in and took advantage of the wifi to make sure every thing was in line for the rest of the trip. Then we went up (steep) stairs to see the bed rooms, i twas very nice and seemed like the perfect vacay home ! Plus a littleviste waith Silvie’s Brother and his wife and and a invite for them to dinner and we where off.
When we got home Mama, Luc, lil sis and I went for a swim in the river, it was really nice and very shallow, but there where horse fly that liked me and I didn’t like them. We had a splash off and then out to chat and dry off.
Silvie’s Brother and his wife came over for dinner and we had ham, been, potato salad all topped with gallons of mollasses (blech, apparently it’s a new Brunswick specialty).
Off to bed, almost finished my book and tommorow we are checking into a chapters to find the sequel !
Day 20, 21, 22 : PEI
Leaving Fredricton, so far still no moose and such.
Today, we are crossing the CONFEDERATION BRIDGE into PEI the foundation of Canada.
PEI is supposed to be like SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO pretty ! hate to offend any one who’s tottaly PEI woot, woot, but it didn’t live up to my expectations. While in PEI we visited Avonlea, the cool but expensive attraction bassed on the book originating from PEI “Anne of green gables”. It was cool, in a nut shell it was a recreation of the book. But I could also tell you that it was a small town with music playing people dressed differently, a dress up station, restaurant, barn with real animals, etc…
That night, there was a huge storm with tons of rain and even more wind. So our tent ripped and we had to get a new one, there was so much wind.
We took the ferry off PEI
A trip on the ferry…
Today we are traveling on the Big ferry to NFL. We faced some more stormy nights before we got here, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…
The ferry was super cool and very High tech. Our cabin was Small but had lots of stuff in it. A shower, toilette. Sink, 2 bunk beds and a TV.
When we got on the ferry we gathered ouur things and set of, the first floor our elovator stopped at was full of LED lights. I was having some weird thoughts about this. We went to our cabin and stationed our selfs. Then we went to explore the boat.
I had an amazing sleep and so did every one, but when I woke up I felt sick cause of the wind pushing the water and roking the boat, the fog was crazy.
We got off and had a little breakfast at a Small restaurant, eggs, bacon and toast. Mmmmmmm.
We stopped at a place to rent a cabin then set off to explore, we went to a Small inlet/Harbour/villiage cause we herd it was very pretty. We found a bench and sat down to have a sandwich. The view was amazing. My mom got some really nice pictures.
While in new found land we also went on a beautiful hike in coyotie/bear/moose land. The ocean is such an amazing thing.
I was super excited to see my grandma, MaMu and my greataunt, aunty Terry. The next day we checked into a hôtel in St, Johns NFL and picked them up from the airoport.
We have plans to see St. Johns today but the weather sucks, more rain and fog so we don’t last long.
We saw George street, and the rooms museam, the funny looking houses and all that newfie stuff.
Saying goodbye to MaMu was really hard but I can’t help thinking of the adventures to come…
We are leaving today, MaMu and Aunty Terry followed the shuttle bus to air port to say final good byes, the next time I’ll see her is october. We have to wait a while in NFL and our plane is 3 hours late. L
We board the plane and take our seets, this is just the Small ride but it still makes me board.
We get off in Montreal. Had dinner to pass time. Then waited, Luc and I went dutie free shopping, I got a big bag of Resses peices PB cups and thy got some drinks.
We got on the second plane and watched a movie, then went to sleep, it kinda sucked, but what did I expect ?
In Switzerland, we got lost in the air port then found again, we got our luggage. And greeted, Guy, he was so excited to see his little grand daughter in person for the first time !
