Friday I made the long trek up all up through New Brunswick to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Now, I like New Brunswick just fine - but Nova Scotia - not so much. First of all - look at the traffic. As soon as you cross into Nova Scotia (and you have to pay a $4 toll to get in and out) there is traffic. And hot. By golly - it was hot. 31C. Along the Bay of Fundy - we have nature's biggest air conditioner - for example it is 17C today and I am wearing a fleece jacket. I left home at 8:45 am and made it to the airport at 5:15 pm. Because the 2 flights into Halifax was $1000 cheaper than New Brunswick - so I drove. Because the flights were expensive enough without adding another $1000.
I arrived right on time - but their flight was delayed 2 hours. So, I had to wait a little bit more. Just a little bit more.
And finally, DH and School Boy come out of the gate! Yeah!!! And look here - look how tall my 8 year old boy is getting - and I am 5'8" myself. So, he is tall! Then I turned around and drove us back into New Brunswick because the hotels are 2X more expensive in Nova Scotia. We got up the next morning at 3 am to finish our trip.
Someone is very happy to be almost back home!
My tired traveler. Once he woke up - he has been talking and chattering away non-stop. Oh yes, I am absolutely thrilled to have my family back together again at long last!
