Testing A Ford Fusion with Ford Canada

2015 Ford Fusion Test Drive

I’m in eastern Canada visiting family and I was lucky enough to score a Ford Fusion to test drive while I’m here. In cooperation with Ford Canada and Taylor Ford of Moncton, I’m driving a 2015 Ford Fusion and it’s one sweet ride. The best features for us include duel zone climate control, adaptive cruise control, and active park assist. The four hour drive from Darren’s home in Moncton, New Brunswick to my home in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia was easier and more fun because of the unique features of the Ford Fusion. I love my mini van, but it’s definitely missing a few drive-changing features. Continue reading

Winter has Arrived in Banff, Alberta

Sunshine Village

Cold winter morning at Sunshine Village Ski Resort

Last week, I shared a few photos that I took while travelling around Banff National Park, Canada, and I am truly humbled by the number of wonderful comments that were submitted, so I decided to show you a few more.

Over the past week, Mother Nature decided to bless us with 30 inches of snow, which has everyone in town talking about one thing: skiing!

November is an exciting time of year for local residents of Banff. The hustle and bustle of the summer tourism season has come and gone, traffic and parking are easy to find. The local ski resorts start teasing us with photos and potential start dates for the upcoming ski season. A fresh crop of Aussies are running around town in their “jumpers” looking to get all the necessary gear that is required for an extended ski holiday in Canada. It truly is an exciting time of year!

It’s at this time of year that I look through old ski and snowboard photos and get myself psyched up for the coming season. Here are a few that I hope you will enjoy seeing as much as I did taking them.

Fall in the Canadian Rockies

Banff, Alberta, Canada

My brother-in-law, Kevin, has an amazing eye for photography. It comes naturally for him, yet he’s so nonchalant about it you’d think it wasn’t a big deal. This week he snapped a few photos with his phone in the Canadian Rockies and they almost make me want to visit. Then… I’m reminded of the excessively cold temperatures and endless snow and I forget all about it. Would you rather be at the white, snowy mountains or the white, sandy beaches? Continue reading

Comfortable in Chaos

Cape Enrage, New Brunswick

When I’m standing on the edge of a cliff, I dream of rappelling down it or climbing up it. When I’m high atop a building, I envision a zipline to whisk me down to the ground. My mind is always focused on the extreme adventure; I feel most at home when my adrenaline is pumping and my heart is racing. I long for the unknown. Being at a place like Cape Enrage in New Brunswick that offers wild adventures is my idea of home.  Continue reading

An East Coaster’s Feast

Lobster-Feast-in-Moncton

Situated in the center of the city, Centennial Park in Moncton, New Brunswick is a 230 acre playground for all ages. We took advantage of one of the free, sheltered picnic areas for a family reunion this evening and we couldn’t have found a better spot. At covered picnic tables, surrounded by an umbrella of trees, we enjoyed a local dream-come-true feast for any East Coaster.  Continue reading
