24 Jun 09 The last night in Brooklyn

Where did three years go? It seems like just last week we moved to New York City. Especially with the barren feel of our apartment as it is dismantled, packed up and ready for another move. Tomorrow at 7 a.m. the movers arrive to pack up our remaining items and load what is expected to be a completely purple moving truck.

We are so sad to leave New York. Our family has grown up here and we will bring so many memories and long distance friendships back with us. We are also so excited to be back in Toronto.

So what does the road ahead hold for us? Well, we hope to hit the road from Brooklyn for a night with friends in Columbia County (about three hours north of NYC). Then we head to Stowe, VT for a night at the Trapp Family Lodge (the European style inn of the von Trapp family of The Sound of Music fame). Marley can hardly contain herself as it’s quite possibly her favourite movie. We then head for the ferry across Lake Champlain and look forward to a drive through the Adirondack Mountains on the final stretch toward the 1,000 Islands and continuing past the last American exit to our homeland.

We hope to post photos on our Flickr page as we progress along the route. We look forward to seeing our Toronto friends soon. Most of our NYC good-byes have been made, but we’ll be back for many visits.
