I arrived in beautiful Charlottetown to see the Polar Prince in port. I noticed this guy hanging around the dock trying to get his photo taken, so went to check it out.
Turns out Prime Minter Trudeau was in town and spent some time with the Leg 3 participants on the ship. Erin, a C3 program lead, sent me a picture of her with the PM on the ship.
Tomorrow, after settling in on the ship and doing safety drills, the new Leg 4 team are going on a historical tour of the city of Charlottetown.
Lots of chaos at the airport this morning! A baggage drop belt went down for 10 minutes. Luckily I was already in line, but by the time I was through the baggage drop line went all the way back to the domestic security gate.
There will be lots of missed or delayed flights here today!
Time to board!
Yesterday, I received a lovely gift from my good friend, Aiden Lee. He made me a hand painted silk scarf, which he called my “protection” scarf to keep me safe on the Canada C3 Expedition. It is such a thoughtful gift. He even included pink roses to reflect the flower used in the logo for the Arctic Rose Foundation.
Thank you, Aiden!
In just two more sleeps, I will be joining the Canada C3 Expedition for Leg 4 of the 150 day, 15 leg, coast to coast to coast tour. I am so excited to have been invited to participate in a project to recognize Canada 150 by connecting Canadians to inspire a deeper understanding of our land, our peoples, the past, present and future of our country.
As a goal of the trip is to engage as many Canadians and people as possible, I have started this blog so I can share the journey. I hope that people will follow this amazing expedition as I engage and participate in the many experiences and conversations that will take place over the course of the 10-day trip.
Leg 4 will be travelling between Charlottetown, PEI and St. John’s, Newfoundland – with many stops in between. Continue reading “Canada C3 Expedition – An Epic Journey”
