You’re going on a cross-country trip, airplane, train,bus, ,or car?( or something else entirely–bike?hot air balloon?)
We took a trip from Montreal,Quebec to Gander,Newfoundland by car. We left in the afternoon , my husband drove all the way from Montreal to our final destination, Gander, Newfoundland.
On our way we stopped at Moncton , New Brunswick, to see the famous Magnetic Hill, I am posting a video of the place.
From Moncton we went to Nova Scotia , we visited the Alaxander graham bell museum.Here is an youtube video I’ve posted about Alexander Graham Bell.
From Baddeck we drove to Sydney Nova Scotia to catch the ferry to Newfoundland. The ferry took five hours to dock in Newfoundland. It took ten hours to reach Gander, Newfoundland!
On a weekend road trip, far away from home, you stumble upon a garage sale in a neighborhood you’re passing through. Astonished, you find an object among the belongings for sale that you recognize. Tell us about it.
On a road trip one summer, my daughter and I decided to take a tour of Moncton ,New Brunswick. We were driving around the city to see some favorite spots,as we were moving along around the neighborhood, I saw a large “Garage Sale”, sign, we decided to stop and check it out. There were many interesting things on sale, I wondered as I moved along, why were they selling so many antiques. I was told the owner had died few months ago, the kids were not interested to keep any of it so they put up all these memorabilia for sale.
I thought about it for a few minutes and wondered would the things I accumulated with so much love will have the same fate? I brushed off that sad feeling and continued to walk around to see if I’d like something to take back with me. Unexpectedly I spotted a painting I had given to my youngest daughter, I picked it up, my memories of that painting flashed me by,this was the one my husband and I bought from the Franklin mint , we loved it so much and thought of passing it on someday to my youngest daughter.
when she came home for a visit the first thing she asked for was that same painting which was collecting dust on the roadside, because it was her favorite I immediately gave it to her, I was shocked to see, it was one of the items for sale.
I was torn, shall I buy it or forget I saw it, I ended up moving away, I told myself it will only bring back memories which will hurt my feelings.
Without saying a word I got into the car and decided I didn’t want to see any more of the city!
