MommyKnows is on the Road – Day 2

Published by on

1 Bear (see photo below)
1 Bald Eagle (I’m too slow)

We arrived in Prince Rupert about 9 p.m., very anxious after 800km of driving to spend the night at the cool little inn that I booked. Unfortunately, the closest we got to our room was down the block. A natural gas leak meant that the road was closed off and the entire city block had been evacuated. That was about the time that Georgia peed her pants. I too wanted to pee my pants! Poor kids and poor parents who have to waste precious vacation time dismantling and laundering the carseat.

SO disappointed … but, what can you do? (Disappointed about the accommodations not the PEE).

We’re now squashed in a small room (with a harbour view) and I am praying our funky little inn is up and running tomorrow.

Prince Rupert is not the end point for our journey. Lace is the winner (of exactly what … I am not sure). We are on our way to the Queen Charlotte Islands. I can’t wait.

Well actually I can wait. Prince Rupert looks fantastic. The scenery is breath taking and it’s full of funky little shops, historic buildings. Tomorrow should be a fun day. NO CAR!

Here are some highlights from today’s trip.

Awesome pictures. I would love to go to the Queen Charlotte’s someday. My sister did a teaching practicum there a few years ago and her pictures are amazing. Enjoy your vacation!

What a fun trip with beautiful scenery. It looks like an amazing place to visit and explore. Have a great time.

It’s never fun to have unexpected things change your plans. Hope everything works out.

That was a fun contest. I learned quite a bit about the area just from trying to guess where you are going.

Wow! What a great group of pictures. Nice job. My wife and I took a road trip to Coure d’Alene, ID this past weekend. The scenery there and back was amazing. We had dinner on a floating restaurant and an eagle landed just outside the window. Lots of fun.

Looks so similar to our once a year trip. We head up to Prince Rupert with a long (much deserved) stop in Hazelton at my Grandparents home. Then home to Prince Rupert and my Dad’s house. I love Prince Rupert. The most interesting thing to me is watching the news while I’m home and seeing the rain icon and then peering out the window to a beautiful sunny day. I swear its a conspiracy to keep people out of the North!

I love the scenery in Moricetown – mountains, river, beautiful nature… and a real bear!!! How weren’t you afraid to come so close to take a shot? I have heard that bears are protecting their territory and do not let anybody enter, the trespasser can be attacked…

Wow Beautiful!! Wish I could of come.
Hope the fairy ride is fun!!!

[…] so tired (and bored) of writing about my recent vacation I’d tell you that besides the fantastic scenery, one of the things that made the LONG (long long long) drive bareable was the tunes—> […]
