Our Big Summer Adventure

This year we decided to do one big trip with the boys instead of multiple trips over the course of the summer. So we banked up our vacation days and headed out bright and early on July 2nd towards the East Coast. Since we knew we would only get one chance to take the boys on this type of trip we tried to fit in as many places as possible. I’ll be posting about our big summer adventure over the next several blog posts so stay tuned.

Our first day we drove 12 hours to make it to New Brunswick. On Monday morning we met our friend Steve and he gave us a quick tour of two local spots.

After saying goodbye to Steve we hit the road again to get to our campsite for the night. We decided to stay at as many National Parks as we could on this trip. We really found some gems!

Kouchibouguac National Park

Monday night after a long and very bumpy drive we arrived at Kouchibouguac National Park. What a beautiful place! It was so quiet and peaceful there. Our campsite was just across the road from the water’s edge.  The campsite we stayed at was nice and wide and open. Very easy to back in and set up quickly, which we needed to do as they sky opened up just as we arrived! Fortunately the downpour was short lived and after dinner we were able to get out for a walk and the boys could swim.  The boys and the dog had a great time playing in the water. I’m sorry that we were only able to stay the one night but PEI was calling!

Before we left I went out for an early morning run and was able to take some great shots with just my phone. It was so quiet and peaceful. I was the only person around and could hear the birds and the waves. It almost made my run enjoyable…almost but not quite!

Our campsite for the night. Too bad we couldn’t stay longer.

Campsite were nice and open and easy to set up.
