This is my first blog post ever from Newfoundland! Can you believe that? I'm writing you from a hotel room in Corner Brook at 11:20 p.m....lol. I'm very tired and have a 'motion sickness hangover,' if there's such a thing. :S
Leg 1 of our journey:
We set out bright and early at six thirty a.m. this morning and took the 5 hour drive to North Sydney, NS where we then boarded the Atlantic Vision, or as I now am calling it, "Makes me lose my vision."
Check us out hanging at the terminal in North Sydney. :)
Okay, the place above is called "Lick-A-Chick." I am working very hard to convince Matt to eat there on the way back to NS, ;)
Lola says, "Yo!"
I'm showcasing our "Window View." We were totally psyched to have this by the way. :D
We had beautiful sunny weather for the drive up. I was not noticing the breeze at all...oblivious girl! ;) Until, I was laying comfortably cozy on my mini cot watching none other than..........
Dirty Dancing!!! I LOVE that movie! :)
Check out our view from our cabin. We are just departing Nova Scotia here. Don't let these beautiful picturesque shots fool you. A little while after these pics were taken, I'm pretty sure there was a Tsunami out there!
When I was done admiring the view, I laid back down and began watching my second movie for the day, "Something's gotta Give," starring Dianne Keaton and Jack Nicholson. I actually watched it from start to finish when I did my only running for the day..........
Running to and from the bathroom as a result of major motion sickness.........ugh! This was my first time EVER getting seasick on one of the vessels that crosses the Gulf to Newfoundland/Nova Scotia....e.v.e.r.
The ride was very swelly. There were very high winds last night in much of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. This obviously had a major effect on the ocean scenario this afternoon.
After about 2 1/2 hours of constant stomach unsettle and two hard core puke sessions in the bathroom where I was being knocked around from the waves, I was totally squeamish still and we finally docked. I made it...........
Don't be fooled. This was after a face touch up, hair brush and major tooth brushing! I mean, like, Major! I don't know if I'll ever eat a Subway turkey sub again, :( I was too cranky and whiny when I was puking to allow Matt to snap a pic...LOL. Maybe next time. On second thought, the boat ride back to Nova Scotia had better not be as rough as today's!
Tomorrow is the next big leg of our journey. A drive to my hometown, Gaultois! Yay! :) Running there will be very interesting. I'll take a bunch of pics and you'll see why. It gives city running a whole new perspective! ;) I promise my next blog post will actually contain some running updates. :)
Cheers for now. I am soooo off to bed. This GGR is toast!
The Tely 10 is in 7 days....OMG!
