Not Dead yet....

Hi buddies! No, I didn't spontaneously combust at Rothbury, nor did I fall off the edge of the earth, though I came close... Went to the furthest place East in North America - Cape Spear, Newfoundland, as part of our maritimes family vacation part 2. I've been on perpetual holiday since the last time we spoke. Our launching point was Sackville NB for a Canadian Studies conference at Mount Allison. Hit the north shore of Nova Scotia, went to a Ceilidh in Mabou, went round the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton Highlands Nat'l Park, took the ferry to Newfoundland where we partied in St. John's with our buddies' reggae band, the Idlers (St. John's is probably my favourite Canadian city now - this visit was very convincing), drove to the west coast of NL to hike up the Gros Morne and ogle at the gorgeous mountains. Delayed 11h waiting for the ferry back to N. Sydney, went to the Alexander Graham Bell museum in Baddeck, Cape Breton (amazing mind - what an innovator - he's my new hero), over the bridge to PEI, then burned it back through N.B. and Quebec and now we're back home in beautiful Peterborough! I loved swimming in the ocean again, and this time not as cold as on the south shore of NS!

So I promised you all a Rothbury update. So I will deliver if you've got the time... Big, fat, yummy 4 days. Couldn't see and do it all, but we shure as hell tried...

I think it's too much to post here, so I was inspired to create a blog ... I'm kind of excited - I started with coverage of MSG and will add Rothbury in the next couple of days. My address is:

I think this is a good option as I can add photos and blab on as long as I want.

I hope you are all having a great summer - though topsy-turvy - cold and rainy in Ontario, hot and dry with fires on the West coast. Westsiderider: there is another BC head here - FranklinsFanatic. Check out the previous posts to hook up.

Good to be back - I missed you guys.

Love, K

Chris,

As your attorney I advise you to drive extremely fast and we'll sort out the details later.

Ah ha!

Hi Mary,

I see you are Mary not Marve (as it looked to me while underlined). Now you are the mysterious Mary, not the mysterious Marve, who works her magic though the forums.

Cozmicfolkfan,

You're quite welcome. Thanks for sharing your Canadian connection. I like those songs too!

Peace,

hey cozmic

I think Canada's the only individual country, rather than region or continent, that has its own topic; for the moment I'd suggest heading over to Deadheads of Europe, where they'll be thrilled to have another Head from Spain join the party.
