ABC Wednesday: E is for everything, but...


Even I can't cover everything today, so I've chosen first this photo taken during our trip to Kauai, Hawaii, in December, 2010. The most exciting thing we did there was go for a ride with Island Helicopters, and it was amazing, so, this week...
E is for Excitement

Another exciting thing I did in 2010 was take a train trip from Edmonton, Alberta, to the east coast of Canada, by myself. During my solo cross-country sojourn, I rode an amphibious bus in Montreal, Quebec, to get a beautiful (and exciting) view of the city from offshore. In this photo, the bus is about to drive out of the water and up that ramp to the left of the waterfall. That was pretty exciting, too, but not nearly as exciting as going down the ramp and into the water!

Capital E for Excitement is right! Helicopters and amphibus. Years ago, this would have made great science fiction. Wow!

I've never taken one of those amphibious buses, I bet it is exciting when they hit the water.

Very exciting! I'd worry about the amphibious bus stopping in the middle of the water . . .

photowannabe said...

You do have some delightful adventures. Seems you do everything....

Wanda said...

Yes, I'd agree....Exciting was a perfect word for our letter today, and your pictures illustrate it well.

Paula Scott said...

Not too many of us I think, can lay claim to having ridden an amphibious bus! Glad you had the courage to take that journey!

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh wow, an amphibious bus would be lots of fun. I would like to do that sometime. That's a great shot of the helicopter.

ChrisJ said...

Your "happy dog" gives me more excitement than a helicopter ride but I admit I am a bit prejudiced. I don't mean to down play your post -- it does sound exciting, but Lindy just looks so sweet and cuddly and you can't cuddle a helicopter:) :) :)
