OK, you have to be totally bored with the streets of Spokane right?
Well you're in luck. I took 200 pictures on our week long trip to PEI, Montreal, Vancouver and Seattle.
So sit back and try to keep up as I travel back to our roots and party down east cost style.
I'll do this in order...here we go
the view from the plane as we land in Toronto (just a short stop over on our way to PEI)
There was a really sleepy guy sitting next to us who must have taken some pills or something because he was totally out for the whole 5 hour flight...what a pain considering the amount of time I spend going to the bathroom
Toronto in the distance...a rare clear day
We also got a preview of Montreal
And finally, only 4 time zones away we see the atlantic ocean and the Confederation bridge that connects PEI to the mainland (New Brunswick)
No planned communities here on the red sandy shores of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
Thank you little plane for getting us there safe..even if there was no TV...liers
As soon as we got to my Dad's we made a bee line for the beach
