On The Road Again.....this time with Gracie and Chris.

We are heading to the Big Rock of Newfoundland.   This will be our first long road trip in quite some time.   We are all pretty excited,  especially Gracie.   She has not been with us for a long trip yet but she knows it will be more fun than staying home without us for two weeks.   I will be so happy to have her to snuggle with each night.   And if it’s cold over there,   she is like a little blast furnace under the covers.   Yea for Gracie....she has the heart and spirit of  much bigger dog.   Don’t tell her she only weights 5 pounds.   She’s off to fight the Moose.
For the first time in many years Chris will be joining us on this road trip.   It’s the perfect trip for the three of us.   He will lead us into the woods,  up mountain trails and through the river and icebergs.   I always feel safe when I’m with him as he is the best field guide that I know.   We never get lost and if we do,  he’ll know just what to do.   On the other hand,  he is not a photographer so going with Jim and I and our multitude of camera gear will be a stretch for him,  but guess what,  we’ve polished up the old 30d, put in a one gig card and we’ll teach him a thing or two.   One thing I know for sure,  we will have the best time ever.
Jim has had the truck detailed,   I’ve packed us the best lunch,  including LeCreme Charddony and the boys will be picking up some Canadian beer as soon as they cross the border.
It will be an adventure that I have been waiting many years to do.   One more thing off my “bucket list”.   I might even find some of my grandfather’s relatives there.   Newfoundland was their home before they migrated to Nova Scotia.
The only sad thing is that I have to leave The Barton’s home.   I hope Liam doesn’t forget me.   I’ll miss him so much.   I have packed a framed photo of him that I will put on my nightstand at each cabin that we visit.   Who knew this part would be so difficult.   
So stay posted.   I’ll be blogging this trip.   It will be my first time and I’ll also be posting photo’s along the way on my Mobile Me Gallery.   If your interested in coming along for the ride,  just check out the web pages every few days.   In the meantime,  stay safe and remember to get out there and enjoy life no matter where the road takes you.
Carpe Diem my friends.
