ACCRT = Almost Cross Canada Road Trip
Sorry about the lack of blogging last night. I think all the craziness is finally caught up with me and I just couldn’t stay awake. Since yesterday was a day of visiting and saying good-bye I’ll just give you a quick run down of my eats.
Breakfast was pancakes.
Fresh fruit – pineapple and an orange.
Lunch was roasted red pepper hummus with flat bread and some fresh fruit.
My last dinner in Nova Scotia was a classic: Lobster.
With corn on the cob. Also a side salad.
This morning Matt and I got up early to try to hit the road. We started the morning with toast and oj. Before leaving the city we grabbed starbucks. I had a grande non-fat vanilla latte.
When we got on the road it was a little cloudy but it actually made for good driving weather.
The kitty was not very happy to be locked up in the cage we bought him.
He spend a good 1.5 hours upset and crying so when we hit Oxford (the blueberry capital of North America) we let him out to get something to eat and he never made it back in.
He spend some time on Matt’s lap.
On the pillow in the back seat.
But most of the time he was on my lap.
Ok, enough fur baby pics. Back to the trip, before leaving Oxford we had to get the pictures of the giant blueberry.
Around 10:15 we hit the Nova Scotia/New Brunswick boarder.
Just after hitting the boarder I was hungry and grabbed a kashi bar out of the cooler.
Around 12:30 we hit Fredericton we ended up at Subway.
I got a turkey sub. I was so hungry and busy getting the car/kitty organized that I forget to get picture.
After leaving Fredericton we ended up hitting a crazy rain storm.
Once the storm was over we were able to take some beautiful pictures of the New Brunswick landscape.
The row of windmills.
It took us about 2.5 hours to cross over into Quebec.
Quebec also had some wonderful scenery.
Around 3:45 local time we hit Riviere du Loup.
After unloading everything into the hotel I grabbed a snack.
Light Laughing Cow Cheese (2 pieces).
And multi-grain wheat thins.
(sorry for the crappy pics).
After relaxing and having a shower to cool off we headed for ‘downtown’ to grab dinner.
We ended up at a cute little diner called Taxi.
This was a cute little diner with a taxi on the ceiling.
Even though the menu was in French I knew what I wanted.
Poutine! I got a medium and it was huge.
It was a beast!
Matt had a taxi burger (with bacon, lettuce, tomato and taxi sauce) with a side of fries.
I made a pretty good go at the plate but I just couldn’t finish it.
After dinner we took a short walk around town.
The old apple symbol.
The old fashioned movie theatre in town.
When we got back to the hotel I snacked on some organic chocolate.
And drank some lemonade.
It’s almost 11 local time and we’re getting up early to hit the road to Ottawa but if you’re on twitter and you follow me you can keep up with my adventures during the day I’ll be tweeting with the hashtag #Soon2bYYCblogger. I’ll be back tomorrow with day 2’s travels.
