By Eliza, Cedar Point to Boston

Cedar Point was so much fun; probably one of the best days of my life. I love roller coasters. (: Although I was super nervous to go on the Top Thrill Dragster (the 2.5 hour wait because it broke down didn’t help either), the ride was definitely unforgettable. It really didn’t feel like you were down 400 feet because you were going so fast. My favorite rides were the Gatekeeper, the Raptor, and Millennium Force. We spent almost 13 hours in the park!

Canada:
Niagara Falls was really pretty. I couldn’t believe how simple it was to light it up at night! The fireworks were amazing. They definitely made up for the fireworks we missed for the 4th of July because were in Canada. Toronto was nice but there wasn’t much that interested us. I liked Montreal. The city was huge and my feet hurt really badly by the end of the day. Since Montreal, we have had wonderful weather! All sunny days and many days in the 90s. I like the heat but I don’t like the humidity. I liked climbing the stairs of Mt. Royale to see the city from a height. I really enjoyed Quebec. Now I want to go to Europe even more and learn French. Prince Edward Island was beautiful and a lot bigger than I had expected it to be. I tried lobster and I hated it (along with all other types of fish and seafood). The Bay of Fundy was cool; it was interesting to see the difference in the tides. We spent a lot of time exploring and by the end; I was covered in the mud.

Then on July 14th, we finally crossed the border for the last time. I liked Canada but it was good to be back in the States. Acadia National Park was really fun to see. We did lots of hiking, I enjoyed hiking to the top to see Bubble Rock (: All of these mountains are so small compared to back west. In New Hampshire, we rode the Cog Train up Mt. Washington. The next day, we drove around stopping here and there to see things. In Vermont, Ben and Jerry’s was a lot of fun, although the factory wasn’t in motion during our tour. Then we all got our own pints and I got Triple Carmel Chunk. They make the best ice cream! I can’t wait for Boston tomorrow!
