It’s the shortest day but it seems to be lasting forever.
We drove 440 kms yesterday.
Today, our goal is to drive 1,000 kms. We’re booked into a motel with an indoor swimming pool & water slide as well as a 24-hour Starbucks. It’s win/win for everyone.
Still, all things considered, the road trip is going well. Lots of coffee, endless games of Candy Crush and listening to recorded books. The weather/roads are cooperating. All passengers (human & canine) are behaving and Mr. Northern-Town has had no reason to pull over and threaten to sell us to gypsies.
For the majority of the day – the scenery has been just like this:
With the occasional glimpse of these:
The Canadian Rockies are gorgeous.
Now it is pitch black and the promise of water slide and hot tub are propelling us onward.
