We're Headed to see Fall

As you all know, I live in Florida...we don't have fall here...and my favorite season of the year is fall.  Well, my sweet husband decided that he was going to take me on a fall cruise.  Not too long after Mom passed away he and our friend John (we travel with he and his wife Nancy often) started planning a trip.  We're flying to Montreal in the morning, going to spend a couple of days there seeing the sights...we'll get on our ship on Saturday afternoon and begin cruising down the St. Lawrence, with stops in Quebec City, Prince Edward Island, Halifax, Sydney and Bar Harbor, Maine...docking in Boston on the 20th and home that afternoon.

The boys will be well taken care of...we have an awesome pet sitter...they won't even miss us!  Better go finish packing.  I'm taking my iPad and hoping that I'll find connections along the way...hope to chat this week!  I had a picture to put in here but for some reason it's telling me I'm out of space...I have no clue...I'll figure it out when I get back.  Sorry!

Wow what a fabulous trip!! And before you pay for more pictures, email me and I will tell you how to gain more space in Picasa (I am assuming you are using the blogger host for pictures)

Oh I am so happy for you! Prince Edward Island is one place I have always wanted to go. Are you going to see Anne of Green Gables home?

I hope you all have a wonderful trip! Enjoy the scenery!

Have a great time! When I lived in California one of the things I missed the most was the change of seasons. Fall is my favorite time of year too!

Sounds like a fantastic trip from a Fantastic husband. How exciting, being a surprise and all. Enjoy every bit of the trip and the good company. You will get a lot of quilting inspiration from taking in all the beautiful sights and colors of fall at their peak.

How wonderful! I have a friend in Halifax and she highly recommends The Lobster Pound and Moore. I think it is in North Sydney.

Have a wonderful trip! Fall is beautiful only more so when you live in a place like Florida and you don't have to rake all of those leaves *s*

We did that exact cruise three years ago--so much fun! The Halifax museum with the titanic stuff was great. We loved Quebec. We hired a private driver right there at the port and he drove us all around, then we walked a bunch too. His narration was priceless. It's all on my blog. October 2009. We did the cities in reverse order.

Carol said...

We're doing a cruise with those cities next year. I'm excited for you. What cruiselne are you going on?

Diane said...

have fun! The leaves are starting to look beautiful here. I do like this season too!

Karen said...

I haven't wanted to visit Prince Edward Island for so long. I know you will have a good time. I miss fall leaves!

Cheryl said...
