Road Trip

On my Mad Max Furiosa Road post I hinted at big things about to manifest here on Widder Island.

Mrs Widds and I are off on another adventure. I’ve been busy with the deep-end of planning things, hence my not posting that often of late.

We’ve just about got all the pieces in place. It looks something like this …

Start in the pink and end in the yellow :)

Start in the pink and end in the yellow 🙂

This is Plan ‘D’.

Plan ‘A’ included The Maritimes and was going to be a 3 month summer-stravaganza, but life happened and we adapted, and adapted, and adapted. Seeing as we’re leaving in a month, we’re both hoping there won’t be a need for a Plan ‘E’, but we’re nothing if not flexible.

We’re going to scrounge for amethysts,  do a gazillion tourist-y things at Niagara Falls, a wine tour of the ‘Wine Country’  around Niagara-on-the-lake, (love the name) hang out at a music festival with whole bunches of like-minded lasses for 6 days, and check out the dinosaur badlands in Alberta.

That’s just the planned stuff. Who knows what spontaneity will bring.

The last pic today goes to this handsome lad. The word has obviously gone out that we are in need of cat-terventions by any neighbourhood cats who are inclined to drop by.

    Ohh I like these kitty drive byes.

    Le trip! What fun! If it’s convenient (and affordable) you can see a play at the Shaw or Stratford Festival! They’re both in the Niagara region.

    Have fun! I enjoyed my trip across Canada and I wasn’t really doing anything except driving. You’ll have le blast.

      We call him, Boof-Head Boy ‘cos he realy likes to ‘boof’ his head against ours. 🙂

      Le money has been one of our constraints. We’re doing a few drive-all-day drives in order to be able to spend more time (and money) at the places we want to see.

      Thanks for the festival tips … will go forth and check them out.

      We were planning to go in our brand new (owned mostly by the bank at this stage) travel trailer, but we’ve hit a snag and things are a bit snafued. We shall see on Wednesday how snafued they are.

    Have a brilliant, nourishing time, Widdershins. And stay safe.

      Thanks Suzanne. I’m not looking forward to crossing the prairies in the middle of July, (I moved to Canada for the snow!) but that’s about the only cloud on this horizon. 😀
