Driving To The Maritimes

Day One

Our first day travelling to our new home was uneventful. The roads were very empty. I saw a lot of transport trucks. There was a bit of road construction going on. It did not cause any delay. The sky was overcast, which made the colours of the green grasses on the roadside, contrasted with the leaves on the trees, in shades of red, orange and yellow, quite pretty. I listened to many podcasts as I drove. My husband and I are each driving our own vehicles and we met up every 2 hours or so to eat some prepared foods we brought with us. We have stopped midway to stay overnight in a hotel. Tomorrow morning, after some breakfast, we will be back on the road.

Day two

We drove in a lot of rain. I listened to a lot of music this day. We were stopped at a checkpoint where we had to show our papers to enter the province. We were permitted to enter. Then we continued to drive, and reached our destination. We set up our quarantine home. It is a Taylor Coach. A beautiful little trailer.

Quarantine

We have committed to a 14 day self isolation. We designed our own bucket compost toilet. We got a cheap toilet seat. We built it when we were still in Toronto. It works very well (not smelly). We use sawdust to cover anything that goes into it.

Our Location

Often when doing Yoga Nidra at the beginning, the person leading you through the nidra will say: “nothing to do, nowhere to go.” I always found that to be a very relaxing thought. It is what I tell myself while I quarantine, and I am finding it very relaxing.
