It  seemed incredible that three years had passed since I had ventured off of Dominica (with the exception of a day trip to Marie-Galante, French West Indies). A long-awaited trip to Canada was about to unfold for a special celebration: my aunt’s 90th birthday in Nova Scotia!  There were other fun things to do and  special people to see as well.  You’ll read more about it all in subsequent posts.

        Hi Gwen –

        I so enjoyed reading about your train trip “down east,” both for the description and photos of the landscape, as well as your notes as to how you cope with environmental sensitivities. I grew up with naturopathic health care and have continued throughout my life. Maybe one day we will have a chat about all that!

        Cheers, Alberta

        Thanks so much Alberta. I appreciate your kind words. Wait until I get to the post about Kingston and Queen’s. I hope that will bring back a memory or two for you! I will reply to your other remarks privately via email. It’s fun to find old friends and EVEN teachers through the web, isn’t it!?! I have been busy preparing the next post about Quebec City, so I will get back to you as soon as I’ve finished with that one. It’s in my head, so I am focusing on that right now. Talk to you soon! : )
