And We're Off...

Tomorrow morning, we are finally off on our first family journey up the eastern seaboard following the colonial coastal history.  Our first stop is Williamsburg then on to Philadelphia, Boston, and Bar Harbor, Maine (not sure of the colonial history here, but we love lobster.)  I plan to teach the kids about our colonial and revolutionary periods.  Greg plans to eat in all the restaurants he's read about in Bon Appetite magazine.  It's a win/win either way for all of us.

After Maine, we are leaving the good ol' US of A and heading over to Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island (I'm a huge Anne of Green Gables fan), then across New Brunswick to Quebec City and Montreal, Canada.  None of us have ever been to Canada so we are extremely excited and would welcome any advice from Canada savvy folks.

We'll reenter the states via Vermont and hope that the flood damaged areas are recovering well.  Our last stop is the newly formed nation's capital city, Washington, D. C.

  1. In New Brunswick, I recommend the Kings Landing Historical Settlement outside of Fredericton. Great examples of life back in the day as Canada grew up. (My great great grandfather's house is there, as well as the church the family attended - my mom was born in the area.) The Bay of Fundy, not far away, is also an incredible visit - for the world's highest swing in tides, lots to see for geography, marine life, history, etc. Enjoy!


Thanks for reading and commenting! Heaven knows, I need some interaction...
