Travel to Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada Day 1 Photo Diary. (Picture heavy post.)
I tried to do One Photo Every Hour for that day, but I hate fiddling with my camera a bunch when I have to take multiple plane rides and family is involved. I don’t want them thinking I’m more vain and weirder than they already must think I am–blogging and understanding blogging involves a different sort of mentality. Esp if you’re blogging about yourself and your style.
10:00AM Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, Atlanta, GA.
Waiting for the plane on the layover. I loathe this airport.
10:50AM: Travel Outfit, ATL
About to board the plane. This is the best outfit shot of my travel outfit I have. Leggings, walking boots (not the most flattering to my legs, I know), leopard button down, leopard scarf (double leopard, so tacky!), Icelandic cape-style cotton hoodie coat. No makeup.
Mama (in-law), on the plane, waiting to take off.
12:00PM: Travel Essentials – Strivectin Eye Cream and DiorSnow UV Shield SPF 50 PA ++
Eye cream to rehydrate dry eye lids and Sunscreen for protection from the stronger UV rays coming through the window.
1:30PM: Canadian Customs Form
I had no $10,000 or any fun merchandise to claim.
2:00PM: Landing in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
The gorgeous Nova Scotia landscape seen from the skies as we land.
3:30PM (Nova Scotia Time) Halifax Airport
4PM Transit, Halifax, NS
Sister-in-law (Seestar) driving us in the most gigantic truck (GMC Yukon) up to Port Hawkesbury in Cape Breton, NS. See Diary notes below.
4:30PM Cute Kid
My nephew, HB, AKA “Neph-piece”, all of 15 months and as loud as he is adorable and lovable. (Basically, a LOT, on all three counts!)
5PM Cute Mestizo Filipino (Hapa/Half) guy with some melons
Nate jokes around as we go grocery shopping for our condo.
3 Vegetarians, 1 Vegan, 1 Southerner and 1 baby don’t eat cheap and don’t eat just a little.
6:00PM Port Hawkesbury >> Port Hood, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada
Husby, reading emails.
6:30PM The highway somewhere on the way to Judique, Nova Scotia
7:30PM Cape Breton Sunset seen from Port Hood Place
Our vacation home, at last. This was the view of the Sunset from our balcony at Port Hood Place Luxury Condo, probably one of the ONLY condos in all of Cape Breton (save for those in Sydney). Gorgeous end to a long day.
