Well, early last week my dad asked if I wanted to go on a short trip somewhere. I live in Ontario and have been to Yukon, B.C., Alberta, and Quebec. My dad's been to all the provinces, but I've never been to the east.

So we flew out this Tuesday morning bright and early, and stayed there for 2 nights. Wow, flying executive class is cool!

Anyways, it was a ton of fun. I didn't know how it was going to be, but the scenery and roads were just amazing. We had a Dodge Charger SXT AWD and it just felt like I was a rally racer. The roads are winding, up and down, with insanely high speed limits. There are lots of blind crests and turns on 50mph roads. The car was a 5 speed auto with a shiftable mode, which made it more fun to drive than just a traditional manual. It would have been a blast to bring my car there if the weather was nice.

Spent some good time with my dad, drank, ate, watched hockey at the pub, 8 hours in the car yesterday, great 3 days. Anyways, on to the pictures.

I'd definately go back. Lots of places that we didn't get to go. They were further away though.

The Charger turned out to be a better car than I thought. It was only the 3.5L V6 though. Down on power, but sounds like the 3.6L in the CTS.

The AWD with cool, but it made the car feel very sluggish. Not bad for a rental. Wouldn't buy one though.

Anyways, enjoy!

Hello.

Nice shots. I read in the newspaper that for 90 years ago.
Dec 6 1917 was there a big accident in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
A ship krasched into a other ship in the harbour of Halifax, one ship was loaded with ammunition and the explosion that followed the krasch demolished a big part of the town and killed over 2000 people.

Did you see any memorials about that accident in Halifax?

I didn't see anything about that. I think maybe it's because I didnt spend much time in Halifax itself.

Glad you guys enjoyed the pics :)

It's true, fairly well known to Canadians, it was the largest man-made explosion in the world until Hiroshima. Quite an historical event.
