And we have arrived just in time to see the sun set over the water. #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust
FLORIDA! #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust #Florida #travelbunny
And the morning starts a little damp and a little breezy. But at least it’s palm trees that are being whipped around #FloridaOrBust #LexGoFurther
And dinner begins w/ SweetTea & biscuits. You can’t see the biscuits because @travelbunnyis25 scarfed them down before I could take the photo. #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust
I’m not quite sure how we managed it but a rousing chorus of “oh Canada” sung in 4-part not-so-harmony at a Hess truck stop outside of Orangeburg NC resulted in this free coffee! #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust
Everybody needs to pee. #FloridaOrBust #LexGoFurther (both hashtags sound wrong in this context!
Fresh @goldenmalted blueberry waffles for breakfast. #yum! #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust Yes, we made waffles before hitting the road.
Not the face I expected to see when I opened my passport. Luckily I had lots of other ID. #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust Almost bust!
And the border crossing wait begins… Luckily I have Gerry & Travel Bunny to keep me company
First step in #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust is 7am coffee!
Second step in #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust @TimHortons for MORE coffee.
Florida or Bust, or possibly bustin’ to go to Florida.
We’ll well past excited now. We’ve cooked the meals, we’ve hugged the ‘rents, we’ve shoveled and shuffled and shuddered in the ice storm (granted nowhere nearly as much as many of our friends!)

In fairness, it’s always pretty but the dusting of or piling of, fresh clean white snow makes everything look like it has been painstakingly crafted for a holiday special. But it’s not that commercial, it& [...]
Prepare yourself. I have left you waiting for the continued adventures of Lex Go Further – A Ford Escape for far too long. It is now time for photos of the puppy interspersed with snow, food and a couple of tweets. But mainly industrial-grade puppy cuteness.
When last we spoke, I had just gotten onto a skidoo for the first time in m [...]

I had arrived at Dani’s after her girls had gone to bed, so I expected to wake up at the crack of dawn to the sound of a household of young teens getting ready for the early bus to school. I expected to get a little tiny amount of bustling time with them before they got on the bus [...]
Now it’s time to hit the road for real, since Saint Jean Port Joli where I stopped for an already late lunch is only about an hour outside of Quebec City and I have to make it to my friend Dani’s in Hampstead tonight.
