Our 2020 Holiday Season Family Bucketlist!

With the world in limbo for making long-term plans these days, I thought I would create a bucket list of Family Favourite activities that we hope to do this year. If not, we will have lots of ideas and be able to plan for next year, right!?!

We are going to do a combination of at-home and hopefully outdoor activities. There is no snow at this point, so I am not including Sledding, Sleigh Rides or Skiing…but they would be added if we had a good amount of snow.

Reeds Beach

As you can tell, based on our previous beach adventures, we have been visiting some beaches on some windy and cooler days. To be fair, often it is much warmer and even sunny inland, but when you head towards the Fundy Coast, you never know what’s in store. When heading out on any road trip, and especially a beach trip, always dress in layers and pack a sweatshirt!
