Living the Adventure

I just got back from my grand road trip adventure. It was a blast!

Here’s the trip in images and numbers:

 

25 – The number of years since I had seen the friend I traveled with.

Niagara Falls from a side viewing platform on the Canadian side. The power of the water was incredible!

7 – The number of days we were on the road.

A surprise (for us) fireworks show above the falls.

4,600 – The number of miles we traveled by car.

We got to see the #6 ranked Montreal Roller Derby team go against Buffalo in the Montreal arena.

13 – The number of U.S. states and Canadian provinces we visited.

My own (very first) attempt at derby. There were a few falls and even more laughs.

43 – The range of temperatures (in degrees Fahrenheit) from a low of 39 to a high of 82.

The treehouse where we stayed on Prince Edward Island. It was so much fun and helped us appreciate the heated space and real bed in Maine that much more!

7 – The number of Tim Horton coffee stops.

Grand Falls in New Brunswick. It was an impulse stop based on an interstate sign and the coolest surprise of the trip. The volume is 90% that of Niagara!

1 – The number of successfully made iced coffees. Apparently they’re not a thing in Canada. The attempts made for lots of giggles!

The Bay of Fundy. We lucked out and got there right at peak tide. The park is SO beautiful and I will definitely go back and spend more time there!

9 – The number of roadside picnics.

Watch out for this statue in St. John. He gets kind of fresh:)

3 – Live moose sightings. My first ever moose experiences!!!

I might have squealed every time I saw one of these signs. Which was about every 5 miles.

40 – Dead deer spotted. We had nothing to do with their demise.

3 – The number of Anne of Green Gables sites visited on Prince Edward Island.
