I Freakin’ Hate The Letter “A”

Day 66    August 14

By day #66 of our big trip, I was getting freakin’ tired of the letter A. Not really tired of the whole alphabet yet, just the A.

When we were driving, we’d listen to music from my iphone (plugged into the USB port, and coming in loud and clear on our stellar stereo system). But every freakin’ time I’d re-start the phone, or we’d stop somewhere and then start driving again, the song “A-1 On The Jukebox” by Dave Edmunds, would come blaring out.

Freakin’ drove me nuts!! I never could figure out how to stop that from happening. Seems that the system wants to always start playing with the first song, alphabetically speaking, on my phone.

Damn freakin’ “A.” And the song, “A-1 On The Jukebox,” damn that too. I’d die happy if I never have to hear that again…ever!!

Moving on here…we left the campground in Moncton, and started the short journey to Prince Edward Island, or PEI, as it’s commonly known. We crossed over the eight mile long Confederation Bridge, marveling at the feat of engineering, as well as at the almost gale force winds that greeted us.

We ignored the uber windyness on PEI, and headed out on the North Cape Coastal Drive on Rt 1A (ironic, no? we were on the 1A, and were also plagued by that increasingly irritating song “A-1 On The Jukebox. coincidence? I think not!).

There was a ton of cool stuff to explore as we drove clockwise around the island. A cool old church, glass bottle houses, beautiful scenery.

Lucky us, we found a nice campground for the night, right on the waterfront…Crystal Beach Campground. And lucky us, we arrived early enough to be treated to a most beautiful sunset. A great ending to a great day!
