Canada/ New England on the Veendam...A Dream Vacation!
Destination: Canada & New England
On Friday, we flew off to Montreal to connect with the Holland America Cruise Ship. It was a treat watching my wife's eyes light up as we took in the magical sights of Montreal and Old Quebec city, then the magic happened when we disembarked in Charlottetown PEI and rented a More vehicle, we shot across the amazing Confederation Bridge connecting PEI and New Brunswick. Enjoying the beautiful road trip as we shot through to my hometown of Springhill NS. It was a magical moment as we pulled into my parents yard and I heard my Mom yell " They're Here! " Out came my Mom & Dad and Beagle and puffy tear filled eyes were unavoidable by all. We had a short but special visit with family for 2 1/2 hrs before trekking back through NB across Confederation Bridge and back to Charlottetown and dropping off the rental car with only 15 mins before our Ship was set to sail...we made it!
We would enjoy a beautiful time in Cape Breton the next day but the following day we would be blessed with a meet-up with my parents who drove to Halifax ( our next stop ) and took us on a personal tour of Peggy's Cove. Another beautiful day with my parents and Aunt and Uncle from Halfax and we were back on the ship and on our way to Bar Harbour Maine. My wife was flying high since the start of the cruise. An engagement ring had caught her eye and she always said that she wanted to pick it out and nothing ever caught her eye, this one did and I made sure she got it, both of our hearts pounded during the purchase and her glowing smile was worth every cent. We had such a memorable cruise from start to finish and thought what the heck when asked to purchase a Cruise Lottery ticket. On the last day of the cruise before disembarkation the next day, we thanked the staff with a standing ovation in the ship showroom, then the Cruise Lottery was drawn and we couldn't believe it! We had won a choice of a Caribbean or Mexican Holland America Cruise!! We both were so very grateful for such a Dream Cruise Vacation and count our blessings indeed :) Less
