To Quebec and the long beginning of the road home

Ocean play

Leaving Nova Scotia is hard. Today we took the longest drive of the trip
from Wallace, Nova Scotia to Quebec City.  Rolling through endless gorgeous
scenery, is both thrilling and nostalgic.  We know that we probably
we won't see this incredible part of Canada again for a year.

But we stopped and had dinner along the way, and sang to the songs
on our favourite radio station, played through my phone.  And now
the longing to be home, to see our family and the dog and cats,
and to be in our house is the pull.  Travelling demands subjecting 
yourself to the pull of going, and when it is time, the equally strong
desire to return home.

I love this painting of Steven and the boys playing in the ocean
at the beach we love in Nova Scotia.  They are all grown up now,
but I'm sure they love the ocean as much as we do.

Have a looking forward to being home day.
