. Other than that the experience was fun. We hit the road again nin search of our new home away from home a cute little cottage somewhere in cape breton. The cottage is really cute with 2 floors, fun games and sataliette T.v. :)...everything i could have ever hoped for, that way theres fun stuff to do and dads snoring will be far away from me haha. Anyways we had a salad dinner and rounded the healthy meal out with a heaping portion of strawberries, wipped cream and angel cake...I think colette is trying to fatten us up. Its now quater after nine, the oldies are already in bed, wow what party animals, Heidi is also asleep, and I'm sneaking out to the pub down the street....haha ok really im just watching family channel:) Tomorrow we're hitting the Cabot trails before picking us our race kits...ahhh the nerves are setting in!!
Today was a great day! Heidi slept in so jay and heidi went on adventure at 9:30 to find a tim hortons to bring back the family for breaky. The excursion took about 45 minutes even though it was only 4 blocks away. The main problem is there is no walking signals so you pretty much just have to wait or get yourself out there. Neither very effective when you with a four year old and both your hands are full of food and hot drinks. We then hoped in the car for a short ride, about 30 mins, to the fortress of Louisberg. It is a really neat set-up with everything from the people to the food all dating back to the early 18th century. We were lured by the promise of delicious fresh bread and gladly bought two huge hunks, costing 7 dollars by the way, and were promised that while the outside is hard as a rock the inside would be soft as a cloud.....YA RIGHTTTT! The inside was just as hard, it was a brick that tasted like sawdust held together by cheap glue. In other words a total rip off and the only one that was able to even swallow a bite was, surprise, surprise...Colette
