New Adventures Start Tomorrow – Canadian Maritimes

October 4th, 2008 at 2:07 pm (AST) by Jake Richter

We are working on a number of other blog entries about New York City and Costa Rica, at present, but just wanted to note that early tomorrow morning we are off for a four week trip that will take us up to the Canadian Maritimes. Specifically, we start in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and then drive around as whim and fancy take us, to other parts of Nova Scotia, then Prince Edward Island, and finally New Brunswick. After two weeks of Canada we make our way down into Maine, and onto New Hampshire and Massachusetts for various family gatherings.

We’re hoping to catch glimpses of nature, fall foliage, and marine life, as well as join a lobsterman on the job, see Alexander Graham Bell’s summer home and related museum, visit Avonlea, and learn about maritime history. And find other interesting things to do along the way, of course.

What will make this trip unusual for us is that we have no itinerary until late October. We’ll be free spirits of sorts, armed with AAA Road Guides and a variety of other books, brochures, and suggestions.

If anyone has ideas for something different and unusual we might enjoy, let us know!
