On Coming Home

The Path

Well, here we are. Home sweet home. Good to be home again. Hope­ful­ly I’ll be able to get a good night’s sleep tonight. Didn’t sleep very well last night. Took me ages to fall asleep and even then I was only sleep­ing on and off while con­sis­tent­ly hav­ing a dream about Barack Oba­ma. Inter­est­ing­ly, Troy had a Barack Oba­ma dream too last night! We’re def­i­nite­ly con­nect­ed. Troy and I, that is. Not Troy, Barack Oba­ma, and I. Though imag­ine how cool it would be if Oba­ma was dream­ing about Troy and me last night when Troy and I were hav­ing a dream about him.

We left Sault Ste. Marie around 9 in the morn­ing. It was rain­ing and the rain didn’t stop until we were three-quar­ter way to Sud­bury. Since it wasn’t rain­ing any­more, we decid­ed to make a quick vis­it to the Big Nick­el in Sud­bury. The Big Nick­el is BIG! I’d post a pic­ture but I didn’t do dig­i­tal dur­ing this trip so you just have to wait patient­ly until the film gets devel­oped and I get around to scan­ning it.

We made anoth­er stop to check out a sus­pen­sion bridge we’d seen on our way up on High­way 69. It’s called the William E. Small Bridge. It was built 50 feet above the French Riv­er and is appar­ent­ly the largest snow­mo­bile bridge of its kind in the world. It can hold up to 100 snow­mo­biles at a time! But if I went for a snow­mo­bile ride with my 99 imag­i­nary friends who all had a snow­mo­bile, I wouldn’t try squeez­ing all 100 of us on it because when Troy and I were stand­ing on one side at the same time, the bridge got kind of wob­bly. And then we saw an otter, but none of us got a pic­ture.

The rest of the dri­ve was pret­ty much bor­ing. It start­ed rain­ing again and the rain got heav­ier as we got clos­er to home. We got home around 8 in the evening. It’s been almost 3 hours since then and I am SO ready for bed! YAWN! Sor­ry for the bor­ing post. I’m too tired to be inter­est­ing…
