Tichka and Little Dude’s East Coast Tour

i am so incredibly, fantastically and enthusiastically excited to announce that this September (post-Labour day) i will be packing up the car, with the dogs in tow, and heading East for a working holiday adventure. this is something that i have wanted to do for years and was close to planning it in 2010 but the cards just weren’t in place. this is the year!

our route will take us from Toronto, Ontario to the tip of Nova Scotia, down the eastern seaboard of the United States to Washington D.C. and back to Toronto. phew! that’s a lot of driving (Tichka better upgrade that learner’s permit), but we’re going to pack in a lot of fun along the way. come on puppies….who’s ready for a road trip?!!!

September is my favourite month of the year (for more reasons than my birthday falls in it)! i am so excited to experience the end of summer/early fall in a part of North America i have longed to explore.

this will be a holiday adventure first and working road trip second. meaning, that i will be taking limited sessions (private or business) along the way. i already have invitations to a handful of destinations that i am excited about. if you are interested or know of anyone along my route that would be interested in booking a session with me, please help me spread the word. i also have group packages available. if you help coordinate your group (of 4 or more), you will be taken care of. please contact me for more details!

i am also open to any sights, places or events that are MUST-SEES or NOT-TO-BE-MISSED along the way. please send me your suggestions or ideas by contacting me (click the contact tab above).

i will also be writing a travel blog of all the places we’ll be staying at. so if you know of any dog-friendly accommodations on my route that are interested in a write-up, please send me their information.

i am jumping up and down with glee and i promise to keep you in the loop along the way!

FYI: i am taking bookings back in Ontario after October 6, 2011.

THE MARCIA LEEDER PHOTOGRAPHY TOUR – SEPTEMBER 2011 (there will be a few coastal drives that i take instead of the major highways)

(UPDATED August 26, 2011 – we are now going to New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Washington D.C before we head back home.)

    You are going to have such a great time! It really is such a beautiful part of the country. A lot of my family is in Halifax so I know the route you are taking quite well. Depending on how long you are in Nova Scotia, check out some of the small maritime towns along the way, they will definately inspire you. If you get a chance, go to Luneburg (where the Bluenose was built). I could go on. Have an awesome trip!

    I can’t believe you won’t be stopping in PEI! You cannot go all the way down East and not! Perhaps I’m biased because I grew up there, but I go back often and trust me, it’s a MUST-SEE! I am actually going to be there in the first 2 weeks of September (also my favourite month, and the summer months (July-August) are faaar too “touristy”). If you decide to pop over, I am happy to give some suggestions! We drive down through the US (NY, Vermont, NH and Maine) and it’s a much, much better trip than through Canada (snore). Have a blast!

    YAY!!! How long will you be in NYC? Will you have time for dinner or something while you’re here? It’s been too long since I’ve seen you. 🙂

    Let me get my head together around places in CT and NY for you.

    marcia, you’re going to LOVE the east coast! i look forward to getting back there myself one day. just wanted to mention the scenic highway routes / drives, because they are so great. If you are able, one example would be to take Fundy Coastal Drive from Moncton to Saint John instead of the major highway. It’s worth it!

    If you make it down to DC you must stop in Baltimore, we have a lot to offer besides The Wire and Homicide! Check out BARCS if you stop, they are doing a lot for pit bulls
