Road Trip Day 2

Welcome back to Day 2 of our Road Trip!

We slept the night in the car.  When we awoke, we headed to Sandy Beach - still in Peterborough.
I ate breakfast whilst sitting on a huge rock and gazing out into the beautiful serene lake.  Cereal with blueberries is so good.  I also read a couple pages from the book Death at SeaWorld by David Kirby.  Update: I finished the book.  I definitely learned a lot from it.  It was a pretty good read, perhaps a bit to long.  But overall 4 out of 5 stars.
We were at the beach at 7  in the morning so barely anyone was there.  Though there was a guy in the lake hunting for coins.  I really like this picture because it looks like a painting.
Oh hey mom
Pretty much the view when driving in a rural area
Ah yes.  We of course had to go back to Riverview Park and Zoo.  Meet Pablo the capybara and Grey Tail the lemur.
Later into the day we set off to Ottawa.
Oh hey mom
Oh hey swans
Looking good

That pretty much sums up the day.  Most of our time was spent in the car driving and listing to Spotify.  I got the 30 day free trial and definitely got its full use during the trip.  We especially liked listening to older songs:

Diana by Paul Anka
2 in the Morning, Step by Step and Summertime by New Kids on the Block
Calendar Girl by Neil Sedaka

(just to name a few)

Anyways, thanks for reading!

Road Trip Day 1

Greeting!  Last week my mom and I set out on a week long road trip within the province of Ontario.  A few days prior to our departure I suddenly had a sparked interest to catch up on my favourite bloggers and what they had been posting since I fell out of line with the community.  Reading those blogs again rejuvenated my love for this blog and made me want to post on here again.  I have noticed that a couple bloggers I absolutely adore have also started drifting away from their blogs, which is totally understandable and I myself am victim of this.  But, I not done with my blog yet.  My summer isn't over, and there is still time to write.  Here we go...

The purpose of our road trip was to check out universities.  I will be going into my final year of high school and I still don't know where I want to go.  One thing I am certain of is I do not, in a million year, want to live at home.  We visited 4 universities total and also did some exploring.

The first day I visited Trent U.  It's a smaller university in a more rural area, but the campus was beautiful and green could be seen for acres on end.  After the tour, we went to the Riverview Park and Zoo.  What a lovely public space.  If I went to Trent, I would love to work at Riverview <3

Tortoise munching away like nobody's business
My personal favourites... the red squirrel monkeys!  Don't think I didn't see you reach for the lock and fumble with it :)
Peafowls (peacocks) roaming around
Domestic goats
I'm blanking on these guys!  If you know what they are let me know
And of course I saw a shop with my name.

These Road Trip series won't have as many outfit pictures, but I can't not share them!

Thanks for reading,
