So today was a trip to Cape Breton and we left late so we wouldnâ€™t be driving in the fog. The hills/mountains we drove on were so huge! Iâ€™ve never seen anything quite like it before. The sunset on the way home was also something to see. We went whale watching at 4:30pm and saw a large group of a common surface whale (much like dolphins but I forget the name). At first it was hard to get decent pictures but near the end of the trip they were swimming right beside the boat; we even managed to see a mother and her calf. It was an interesting first for me, since Iâ€™d never gone whale watching before. Dianne planned to go back to her parentâ€™s place, but the trip was so long that we stayed at a place on the side of the road (before whycocgoma). I shared a bed with Alex at first but I guess all his flip flopping in the bed made me scream in my sleep so Dianne switched spots and I ended up sleeping in Erinâ€™s bed.

From there we started saying our goodbyes. We saw Jeanie one last time and she told me to write every so often. We went to aunt Marionâ€™s for muscles and stir fry. It was all so good, I loved her place the most I think. We saw the rest of the family before leaving, and poor Alex had to stay longer (he lives in the states but his mother was on a honeymoon or something) but at least he wasnâ€™t staying by himself at the grandparents.
The most memorable event that day was when we went shopping and Alex and I wandered off because we were bored. We laid on a soft bed and then a lady tried to sell it to us. I think she thought we were a couple (I certainly looked mature enough and he was taller than me). We went along with it at any rate so that we wouldnâ€™t get in trouble for laying on the beds with no interest of buying. Alex kept walking around going â€śwe could get that for our house.â€ť Just to add to the joke. That night I fell asleep to real life stories of aunt Marionâ€™s.

Itâ€™s Thursday and weâ€™re leaving but itâ€™s noon. Weâ€™ve had a late start to our day. O.O Once we got on the road however, we simply kept driving. I will Marion and the others but I do lok forward to seeing my family. We got a motel at the Quality Inn at Edmundson, New Brunswick. Dianne plans to get me home around 7pm tomorrow. Itâ€™s been raining again too, Dianne jokingly commented that Nova Scotia is crying because we are leaving. Looks like another long drive ahead of us tomorrow.

I was so anxious to get home! We were caught in Montreal traffic. Friday at 5:00pm T.T bad planning on Dianneâ€™s part. It was a long day to say the least. When I did get home however, there was a splendid sunset, so very beautiful that I took a picture of it.
The trip câ€™est fini!
