Moving Day 2

The first day of our move just happened to be our 10th anniversary ( I had to edit the date in my previous post because somehow I mixed up the days).
Anyway, who would have thought we would have been on our way to Prince Edward Island to live?  Certainly not either of us!

On Oct. 31st, which was also my daughter's 21st birthday, we woke up in Drummondville, Quebec, where we had taken a hotel room the night before. The three of us and three dogs set out after breakfast at a restaurant across the street from the hotel.

Our rides await in the hotel parking lot...

We made it to Fredricton, New Brunswick the second night and ordered Chinese food to our room.
The next day would be the day we reached Prince Edward Island.

We took the blue route shown here, just over 1000 miles!

Moving Day 1

We are already settled in our new home, but here are some photos from our move.

I sold my van in order to make the trip without having to return for it.  We rented a large UHaul truck as well as two trailers.  I pulled one trailer with our pickup truck and my husband pulled the other with the UHaul truck. We left on Wed. Oct. 29th  Thurs. Oct. 30th (I had to edit this)

The trailers and trucks were packed full.  We also had two Chihuahuas, who rode with Eric in the big truck, and my collie who rode with myself and my daughter, Laura, in the pickup.

I did not have room for all my wood supply and had to leave behind some, including most of my pallet wood and my pallet wood triangle which was the top of a treehouse I made many years ago.

Here's a before and after of my shop...

This photo was taken just as we were about to leave our driveway:

It was really tough to load and pack everything ourselves.  I must say it took a lot out of us and we were happy to be finally driving away.
