Susie assures me that we are living in the future, and that probably most of the places we are staying along the way will have wireless, but I remain doubtful. I mean, sure the Winchesters seem to have wireless in their cheap motels, but that's television (and also the US). Anyway, we will see! If there is wireless, I will attempt to post my locations so that anyone who is interested can follow my (not so) little journey on Google Maps.
For now - August 17th, depart from just outside of Ottawa - my beautiful nation's capital.
I will miss your river and your parliament buildings. I will your year-round Beavertail stand, and that mad jazzy dijiridoo player that busks in the market on sunny days. I will miss my swamps, and that lone dead tree that stands in the middle of the one down the road...a bird house nailed to it, though I don't know who would wade through the swamp to do that. I will miss your snow and your thunderstorms. I will miss my cottage, and the satisfaction I always got from spending my summers fixing it up. I will miss the beach near my cottage - with it's perfect Group-of-Seven pine-treed island. I will miss your colours in the fall.
There are many things that I will NOT miss, but let's keep this positive ;-)
And now...to the West!
