Sophie and Sydney


As we depart Saint John, completely exhausted, we are going to take a day off and just relax onboard the ship.
Our next destination on Thursday, you won't find in any travel brochure. 
Well, you'll find Halifax on the itinerary but we've lined up a local for an insiders look at one of the most historic cities in North America. Well, she's letting her Dads do the driving bit.

Yes, I'm sure most of you recognize Miss Sophie. I am so excited to meet her. I feel like I've known her most of her life. And quite honestly, I am definitely missing my little fluff ball back at home.
A little doggie time will do me some good.


 Then on Friday, we are off to Sydney!




Oops! Wrong one.
(I've already been there)









There it is! Sydney, Nova Scotia. Home to the worlds largest (50 feet) fiddle. Cape Breton Island has been producing wonderful music for many years and we are hoping to catch some live jams at a local pub.









From here we are going to enjoy another relaxing day at sea. Hopefully we will avoid those icebergs and make it safely back to Boston before heading back to Michigan.
When I get home, I've got a lot of photo downloading to do. You are in for a treat!

Hey Ho...Stewie-O and Edie-O!!

I am sitting here waiting patiently for your cruise ship to arrive. The rain is relentless...so Maritimes!! Water all around us and above us...rain coats just might help!!!

Psst....I got my haircut....so that gorgeous picture above isn't as gorgeous as it should be. Oh well, I feel lighter and less sandier!!

I once took a tour of England and there were a number of Australians in the group. One evening at supper, the conversation turned to the pets remaining back home. There were smiles as everybody talked about their dogs and more than a few people got misty-eyed when they said how much they missed them.

Had to come say "hello" after reading Jim's post about your visit. Sounds like you're having a great cruise.
