Summer Plans - Donna Alward
I'm looking forward to this summer. I'll still be working, but I'm planning on doing some major relaxation. I love day trips. It's vacation without the long travel time or living out of a suitcase. :-) So this year I have a "wish list" of things I would like to do before September and school and new deadlines arrive again.
Pier 21. I have yet to visit Pier 21 here at the harbour. I've done the Harbour Hopper tour and gone to the Museum of the Atlantic and the Citadel, but not Pier 21. There's a lot of history here - this was the point of entry for immigrants between 1928 and 1971. With the exception of two small groups, all 494,874 Europe-bound service personnel embarked from Pier 21 during the Second World War.
Hopewell Rocks - these formations are on the New Brunswick side of the Bay of Fundy. We might be able to sneak in a trip while visiting the inlaws during the summer. It's a bit of a drive but very worth it. I made this trip when I was 18 with my mom - when we took a "day trip" and ended up spending three days away on a whim.
I probably won't be able to fit in all those places, but I know we'll get to at least some. What are your plans for the summer?
