We woke up bright and early on our final day and had some breakfast. We packed up and headed out to the plane soon after and said our final goodbyes. As with all trips, it’s a great experience but it’s nice to think about being home soon. Unfortunately, we had a strong headwind the entire route. I think it added at least an hour on our final ETA.
There were some cows sunbathing and splooshing in the water:
And the Chocolate River:
Our first stop was in Frederickton, New Brunswick. I had been there many years ago, when I spent four months in Canadian Force Base Gagetown.
This guy was just taking off:
After filling up, we headed out toward our next stop, which would be St. Georges, Quebec.
We flew around some cute, little rain shower on the way:
We met up with a couple other planes from our group and all decided to order pizza. Yum!
Our next and final pit stop was Cornwall, Ontario. Once we filled up there, we were finally on the final leg home. Oshawa, here we come!
The sunset was very pretty:
After flying 2635km over the last four days, we could see our final destination – Oshawa Airport:
We fairly quickly tucked away the plane and transferred our baggage to our cars. I still had an almost 2 hour drive home! I made it with no issues and was so glad I could see my kitties again!
What an amazing adventure. I still can’t believe I survived! I knew I would need at least a couple days to recover, but I’ll get more into that in the next blog. I will be doing one on various things from the trip that I haven’t mentioned yet.
Today’s symptoms: Feeling kinda blah still. I think my body is still recovering from the trip. A few days ago, I started getting bad nerve pain in both of my lower legs. I’ve had things like this before, but it’s never been 24/7 for three days. I’ll have a little chat with these new symptoms before bed and advise them that they are to be gone from my body by the time I wake up tomorrow! Hmph!
