Day 29

Day 29

all seasons in one day -8 °C

5:15 am alarm ugh!
It was NOT the best night! I attempted to go to bed early, I ended up sticking my head outside my hotel room door to look to see if I could tell where the noise was coming from. I found a young child in only a diaper and a woman talking to another person in the room across the hall. I asked if she was next door to me. When she answered yes I told her I could hear , what sounded like a door opening and closing repeatedly. She said she would mention it to the children:) The noise came to a grinding hault! :):) This was helpful but I unfortunately Still woke up every two hours!
I drove in or through 3 provinces today. Left Brandon, Manitoba, drive through Saskatchewan and made it to Calgary , Alberta. I drove in the rain, sun,
and the snow .
Arrived at Karen and Marshall's around 4:30 pm
IM SORRY TO EVERYONE FOR NOT CONTACTING YOU once I arrived. We got to talking and then making dinner and.....well I'm sorry :)
Shrimp fajitas and bean salad for dinner. mmmmm delicious! Tune in tomorrow to see what Karen is making:)

Day 28

Day 28

all seasons in one day -3 °C

5:15 alarm, on the road by 6:15 am, finally saw daylight close to 8:30! Pic of the sun rising. As soon as I crossed over into Manitoba it was snowing. Didn't last too long! In between Winnipeg and Brandon I went through a 2 MIN storm, very strange! lol
I took a pic of my rear view mirror where the dark cloud can be seen and in front of me were blue skies and puffy white clouds. The road was wet from the storm. Cool pics though!
Arrived in Brandon around 3:30! Great timing again today. ( YES:) I drove over the speed limit, but only 10 over not 20 0r 30!) LOL
It will be a very early night! :)
Heading to Calgary tomorrow !

Day 26

Day 26

rain 7 °C

And the journey begins again:) lol
After much deliberation, I left from St. Catharines at 9 am
ok it wasn't that much deliberation . lol
Rather , I said I was leaving at 6 am, my family said why? You'll sit in traffic, leave later, I said ok and then I left later. ( Thank you BTW)
Smooth sailing through Hamilton, Burlington, Toronto area! Until I missed a turn off and had to loop around, only lost about 10 min. no biggie!
The biggie came about an hour and a half from Sault Ste Marie, when I went to put the hotel address in my Google maps:(
It was then that I realized I booked the Days Inn Wyndham in Sault Ste Marie MI ( Michigan ) not Sault Ste Marie Ont. ugh &$%$@*&%! lol
Arrived just about 30 minutes later than I had expected, not too bad!
