Just a heads up, Tigress is in Florida until next Sunday :) I just wanted to let everyone know, in case anyone needed her currently.

I really meant to post before I took off but it was rather last-minute, my boyfriend's family can be a bit unpredictable ^^;. Thanks again for passing along the message, Tal <3.

It was my first real trip to America and we drove all down the East coast from Toronto to Florida, saw a terrifying amount of pro-life and aggressively religious signage along the roads in certain states but people were all rather pleasant :). I finally heard a real American use "y'all" and "darlin" casually! A cashier, no less!

Come to think of it the most obnoxious person we encountered was in Niagara (Canada) when we were dropping off the RV... as soon as this old white guy saw my Korean partner and his Korean family he tried to wave them out of a $500,000 RV they were looking at while theirs was getting serviced, claiming he was "thinking of buying the RV and didn't want no dogs inside" (they have a tiny white infant-sized pooch)... the RV already had a sign on front saying it was sold and when my boyfriend pointed that out he got rather flustered :bubbles: .

Going to play catch-up today and tomorrow so posts will be incoming ^^.

Sorry you ran into nasty Canadians... You were very close to me. I live in St.Catharines. Did you go see the Niagara Falls?
If you did on the way there did you stop by the outlet mall along the highway?

Your trip sounded great! On list to drive along the coast. Stop different places tot take photos of the different marine and coastal wildlife. That and check out all the cool aquariums, like Mona Ray Bay and Mystic.
I need a new image holder...lol

I'm glad it was fun! ^,_,^ We have a huge 2 week trip in the works for mid-October, and I hope we get to come home with similar excitement. :) I was mostly raised in Texas, so the idea of y'all or Darlin being a novelty to hear really tickles me somehow. XD I tend to say sweetheart more often than Darlin, myself, but I think that's a "me" thing, lol.

I read that part aloud to my co-worker, we loved the y’all and the darlin’ from a real live American too ^^
