The Last Day And A New Season Is Coming Up Fast

Already it’s February 28 – the last day of another month in the Southwest.
We see people packing up and leaving. It’s that time of the year again. We have just 3 more weeks before we will join the hordes on the Interstate, heading to a northern destination. SNOWBIRDS we are for sure. Like migrating birds we change our residence within the rhythm of the year.

And I would think it has long-standing traditions as even some tribes of the early people in this country were nomadic. They might not have been traveling the long distances for the same reasons as we do every year, but they followed their prey – wild animals they could hunt down.

Most likely we will be hitting the home turf around April 01 and by that time I suppose the last winter storm should have passed giving way for spring and warmer temperatures.

Are we looking forward to get home? You bet we are! The summer will be a busy one as visitors will flock to
Campobello Island to see the F.D.R. Cottage and our historic Head Harbour Lightstation.
For the first time we will be able to bring visitors from the resort town of St.Andrews,NB to our island. Our boat will leave twice a day and land right below the F.D.R. Cottage from where we will start various sightseeing tours.

So yes, we are anxious to drive home even though we are also feeling sorry that our time here will soon be over.

It’s the life of a snowbird and we feel really blessed that we can get the best of both “worlds”.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Your post brought home to me how fast the time flies by. Seems it was just a couple weeks ago I was reading about your place in Maine... and now you're already making plans to return. We are truly fortunate, aren't we? As you say... the best of two (or more) worlds.

  2. Nothing can be better than having the best of both worlds. We always look forward to going south for the winter and north for the summer. Time is definitely close to start heading ... oh wait, we start very slowly today.

  3. I DON'T WANT TO HEAD NORTH !! sob sob But like the rest of the Canadians I do have to head back. Gotta start thinking about it in the next week or so.
