Aug 28, 2011 - Moncton, New Brunswick
Our party yesterday afternoon was a great success and we lucked out with regards to the rain as everyone had left for home about twenty minutes before some showers arrived. This party was for all of Marge's family in Fredericton. Hopefully, the party was for our arriving and visiting and not that we were finally departing. Around 1500 Lida and her daughter Andrea arrived in the campground. Lida is a very close friend of ours that is also a nursing classmate of Marge.

Aug 14, 2011 - Back to Moncton, NB
After spending the night at the KOA in North Sydney, Nova Scotia we headed back to Moncton, New Brunswick to stop for the night.

Aug 1, 2011 - 1'st travel day
Today was our first day of travel to get into Canada. We left BI at 8:15 am and arrived in Moncton, New Brunswick at about 6:30 pm (7:30 local time). It was a long day but very easy travel so we were able to stay relaxed. We got through customs just fine and we even got the stern security woman to smile a little bit. One of the questions she asked was if we were going to visit someone in Newfoundland and I told her we were visiting the Vikings. She cracked a little smile. Today we will head for Sydney to stay overnight in a Wal Mart in...Jump to full entry

Apr 24, 2011 - End of "Trip of a Lifetime"
We made it!!! late Sat. evening April 23,2011 we arrived at 82 crestwood Drive. We were exhausted but happy to be home. Children and grandchildren were here to greet us! Jennifer had supper all prepared for us- all we had to do was sit down- yum- BBQ steak with all the trimmings. The last few days of our trip our internet connection was sporadic at best so that is why no updates. I will attempt to post more pictures this week as we settle in- our house was painted inside while we were away so lots of tweaking to be done- looks great! We had...Jump to full entry
