We're on the road again

The last time we hit the highway for the sunny south, we left behind bitter cold. At the gas station in Windsor where we filled up before crossing the border -- at 77 cents/litre! -- there were icicles hanging from the building and piles of snow everywhere. I didn't even bother to try to colour-correct the blue tones in the above photo; it really did look and feel that dismal. We're off again, leaving tomorrow, but this time there is no need for winter jackets nor is there worry about driving into a blizzard. But we will be driving from spring into summer; we've been checking the weather reports and it's HOT in Florida!

I love love love road trips. Of course I know that it's great to get on a plane and three hours later, whoosh!, be at your destination. But for me, the journey is part of the adventure. And this adventure is going to be extra-fun, extra-special, because our son and his girlfriend are coming along. Other than Pittsburgh last September, which was just a weekend, we haven't had a "family vacation" in years, not since he was a teenager. I am really looking forward to this trip!

I will be blogging along the way, so stay tuned for highlights from the road. And now I must dash -- as with any vacation, there are a million last-minute things to do!
