Friday Pie & I drove down to Woodstock and returned the rental van Dad had arranged for us. We've been staying with him & S since then. Monday we'll be on the road to pick up another rental in Fredericton and heading on to the Miramichi to see my cousin Drew & his family.
There's not a lot in Dad's neck of the woods. The biggest "claim to fame" is this:
WORLD's longest covered bridge.
This is a full shot of it from Dad's side of the bridge:
who also has a blog (hi Amanda *waves*), "big sis" Natalie, her kids Crystal & Tristan (S's family that is now part of mine) :) Uncles & Aunts (Kevin, Bob & Ruth, Marty) and Great Aunt Florence, that's a lot of family for a girl that's grown up without really having extended family around lol
GA Florence is pretty inspiring. She's 90 and lives on her own (in a regular house not a seniors unit) which is spotless. She mows her 2 acre yard, goes snowmobiling and 4 wheeling and "out to camp" (a phrase they use a lot here).
Today Dad called us out of the house to see the hang-gliders going by. During good weather its apparently not uncommon to see them. There were 7 total, I saw 5 and then thought to grab my camera, not a great shot... wish I had grabbed it sooner.
