Trevor's Travel Binder, Part 4

Here's Part 4 of Trevor's Travel Binder! (To see it from the beginning, go here.)

On Wednesday 10/8, we visited Halifax in Nova Scotia. We took a Duck Tour, which was great fun and one of the highlights of the trip for Trevor. We spent the rest of the day exploring Halifax and walking on the boardwalk.


The Question of the Day asked, "How was your day?"


On Thursday 10/9, we went to Bar Harbor, Maine. Because we were returning to the US after Canadian travel, we had to clear immigration first thing in the morning. Then we went to Acadia National Park. It was gorgeous. We had a wonderful hike that took us through different biomes. Then we went to the top of Cadillac Mountain. It was a fantastic day.


Trevor asked us, "What did you mainly like in Maine?"



On Friday 10/4, my mom joined Trevor and me for a guided walk along the Freedom Trail while Steve took a culinary tour and the rest of the family went to Fenway Park. This was my first visit to Boston and I was thrilled to finally be there. I was supposed to have gone with my students in early 2002. After taking fifth graders on a very successful trip to New York City and Washington D.C., my coworker and I started planning a New York City and Boston trip. Our itinerary was set and plans were in place, then September 11, 2001 changed everything. Our deposits were due, but we didn't know what air travel would be like in the upcoming months, nor which historic sites would be open. Parents were concerned that it wouldn't be safe to travel, so we canceled the trip. 

Even though Trevor has not studied American history yet, he was still very interested in everything along the Freedom Trail. 



That night at dinner he asked us all, "How was Boston?"



Tomorrow I'll share the last part of Trevor's Travel Binder.
