We woke up in Bangor, Maine yesterday and Darby decided she wanted to try to make it all the way to Nova Scotia in one day. Garmin told us it was about 530 miles, so we made a run for it.
We made a quite stop at UNB to check out the campus, then burned right back to the highway.
Our new house is so secluded that the GPS got confused, and we were briefly lost. But then we found it: our little church on the seaside.
Darby and I have been nesting, going for walks with her parents and starting to scout out jobs.
I've already set up my writing desk (trying not to get bummed that I was greeted by a rejection letter from The Malahat Review) and I'm looking forward to getting to work.
Our cabin (which is two minutes from the main house) doesn't have an Internet connection, which should help with my productivity. Work on my thesis will commence shortly.
I am so happy to be here. Darby's sister Ally (or "Gander") is here, and today we built a fire pit together. She brought me n' Darby a bunch of Lululemon stuff from New Zealand, so we basically have whole new wardrobes.
This area is gorgeous. Darby and I walked around Lunenburg a little bit today, and then we went for a walk along the ocean with her parents and Ally. I'm looking forward to exploring more.
Check out some more photos after the jump.
