After 3 months, 4 days and 8500 miles, we finally arrived at our winter home here at Senator’s Wash, north of Yuma, Arizona.
We left Cowley, Alberta on the 14th of August and traveled east to Sutton, Quebec, my home town. We stayed there for 3 weeks visiting family and friends and feasting on maple syrup from my cousin’s sugar bush and even had several meals of Boudin Noir (Blood Sausage), a Quebec specialty.
Leaving Quebec, we traveled to Nova Scotia and spent a weekend with Gary and Pam. They toured us to Annapolis Valley, Halifax, Dartmouth and Peggy’s Cove.
Then on to PEI where we stayed with a cousin and her family, eating seafood chowder and lobster.
Back to the mainland and through New Brunswick into Maine, southeast to Massachusetts, north to the Adirondack Mountains of New York where we stayed with desert friends that don’t come back anymore.
Leaving there we traveled to Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida. I have 2 cousins that live in Florida so we were there for several days. In Florida, I even tried Alligator once, not bad just chewy.
The purpose of all this traveling was to keep in contact with several first cousins that we hadn’t seen for several years.
Did I mention that we also found geocaches while exploring? Now to relax for a while and try to remember all the great memories.
