Ahhhhhh... it is so pleasant to get up in the morning and not have to jump into a car! Although last night, I was dreaming that I was in a car on the highway!
Yes, we have completed our 4,350-odd km and are now safely ensconced at the very nice corner room at the Four Points Sheraton in Hull. I can see the Parliament buildings across the river in Ottawa! I only wish we could stay here more than two nights, but Rocky and his co-hort (I am resisting the urge to call him Bullwinkle) are arriving at our place tomorrow around noon.
Today we have to do laundry and go appliance-shopping, as our new place has not a single appliance. We also have to drive out to Val-des-monts and get the keys to our new place!
So we all survived the drive. Even the gecko looks relieved that it is over. The cats are residing at "Cat's Paradise" until Saturday and have a very nice "double unit" with a great outdoor part that Julius is especially sure to enjoy.
I am hoping that today has a better start than yesterday, which involved me walking back from the Comfort Inn breakfast bar with toast and peanut butter, opening the door to our room, and somehow managing to drop the toast so the it landed PB-first on my t-shirt, then hit the carpet face down.
And hey, my westcoast friends, I do miss you all!
Sorry for the lack of photos but you can be sure there will be some soon! Right now I am wearing my white Sheraton bathrobe and my monkey pajamas. There's an image for you to savour.
