Wow. It's been ages since I posted.

This is mainly because I've had nothing to say, but I've also been exhausted. I've been wrangling the document from hell, plus I've been dealing with a new responsibility given to me at work, which of course came with a ton of new work. Luckily I'm about to lose it again (but not because I was crap at it hurrah!).

Anyway, the reason I've not been able to keep my eyes open in the last week is because of the energetic weekend I had last week (that and the lousy nights of sleep I've been having). I went to Shropshire with my friends and their two daughters.

Ironbridge! )

Almost forgot. I took some pics of signs I found amusing along the way.

The giggles might not translate... But I found them amusing anyway )

Last one!

As we had a night flight (23:55!), we had a day to waste. Unfortunately, there wasn't much in Toronto that we still wanted to see. In the end we drove about a bit.

Therefore these pics are a bit random.

Then we went to the airport.

The flight home was not a great one. My mum was sick (exhaustion) and the film was 'He's Not that into You'. Nuff said.

We didn't even get a free cookie this time.

Overall, I think I liked Canada better, but I really don't think we saw anything like what New England could offer, we did it all too quick. I would've liked to have seen more of Boston certainly.

Oh well, maybe next time.

This holiday was starting to feel as endless as these posts.

Today was a bit boring, we drove back to Toronto. The best bit was the massive thunderstorm we drove through.

There were some things to snap...

We left Montreal for Toronto, stopping off at Kingston on the way.

But first we visited the Basilica:

There's still tons to go!

We took a slow drive up through upper Vermont to Montreal, stopping at a highlight off the trip: the Ben and Jerry's factory.

We liked this area, but as we didn't like our hotel much we transferred to one in Quechee about five miles away.

Better get on with this.

With Boston in the rearview mirror, we headed off to Vermont, taking a break to go shopping in New Hampshire. Unfortunately, there was nothing worth buying. :(

Have to say by this point I've been deeply unimpressed with the USA, mostly because of the miles we had to do on the Interstate, but the bottom end on Cape Cod didn't grab us either, so we didn't bother with he rest and headed for Boston, stopping short and staying on Nantasket Beach, a spit sticking out into the bay. I don't know if the spit has a name beyond the amusing 'Hull' - it's UK twin couldn't be more different, except the greyness.

It was hardly beach weather though, it tipped down!

weather ruins the photos (as does a father that won't stop the car long enough to take any) )

Another day spent mostly on the road and tempers are beginning to fray unfortunately.

We ended the day in Providence, RI (although our hotel was in Pawtucket). We didn't really feel like looking around, so we only did a quick tour in the car. In hindsight, I think that was a mistake.

It has not escaped my notice that Providence is the only place on our tour which has an SPN episode set there (Houses of the Holy). :)
