So last weekend I got an offer from my friend Zara to go on a road trip and camp because she had wanted to go to Prince Edward Island. For those of you who don’t know Canadian geography, it’s an island/province on the east coast tip of Canada on the Atlantic Ocean just across from the province of New Brunswick. It’s roughly a 12hour drive from the Montreal. I was really excited because the farthest east in Canada I have been is Quebec City and have never been to either NB or PEI before. As well I am a huge lover of islands (I grew up on an island) and always feel so spiritually happy being near the ocean. I really wanted to show you some of my photos from the trip so I thought I’d share them over the next few Thursdays.
Zara’s next mission after a failed hunt for a bakery was ice cream, this shop between Fredricton and Moncton lured us off the highway in promise of just that and instead provided to be insanely expensive ice cream that sent us back to the car
This was the only sucessful mission of the day, we found the liquer store to make sure we had plenty of cold drinks for camping and we found a bakery too that had this amazing treat (it’s rice cripsy squre with icing and then brownie on the bottom – yum)
We didn’t have a map and were only using the GPS on my phone at certain times so in anticapation of seeing the ocean again we started to play a game called – Ocean. To play you had to say ‘ocean’ whenever you thought you saw it on the horizion. I kept thinking the bottom layer of clouds was the ocean.
The clouds were starting to scare us because we were camping all weekend and didn’t want to get wet on the first night. But it made for a wonderful last few hours of driving to get to the end of the coastal part of New Brunswick.
When we arrive at our campsite it was completly dark but we got to watch the moon rise over the ocean. It was amazing, it looked like the sun it was glowing a bright orange. I didn’t have time to grap my tripod and take a good shot but it was really cool.
I thought I’d end it here, we did make a campfire and cook some sausages over the fire but soon afterwards we setup out tents and went to bed. It was a long drive – much longer than we had expected. Next week I’ll show you part of Day 2 in Prince Edward Island. Let me know if you like these kind of journal sets of photos.
