And so, I found myself riding off into the sunset, Jane at my side, as we went on our little adventure - which I documented on Instagram in a series I called "Travels with Jane" - a series I intend to continue, as I go anywhere I think Jane may enjoy... Click through to see the results!
Jane, driving into Pennsylvania. She just had to stand on the Welcome to Pennsylvania sign, even though she took a tumble. But it's okay, Jane is much hardier than Louisa Musgrove - she bounced back just fine...
She seemed to quite like Pennsylvania - though she wasn't so sure about the "Willoughby Hills" place we passed to get there...
Jane's first real adventure was a bold one - standing on the slick railing at Niagara Falls, staring out at the night lights in the mist.
The bestie and I stopped for some late night Indian food from a foodtruck. We thought Jane would enjoy, too, and as she was no stranger to colonialism, we figured she'd feel right at home with Indian cuisine.
Jane also liked to get her drink on... She had some at a winery, she had a few more at dinner, and she even brought some home with her... That may be how she ended up in this cop car.
That was the end of our travels for that weekend, but Jane and I had so much fun gadding about Niagara and various oddbits of NY and PA that I invited her out for a beach day just this past weekend. We both relaxed on the beach, me with my book and she with hers.
She seemed content at the beach, perhaps thinking of Lyme and the romances to be had there. She was quite taken with the lighthouse and exploring the seaside in general.
I think she quite likes being able to get out and see what the world has become. (She also seems to like the attention she gets, like when she climbed onto the statue of Nikola Tesla, which didn't make it to Instagram, as I didn't want to encourage her antics...)
She has a little conveyance now, which I keep about me for our travels. I think we'll enjoy seeing the world together - though I'll have to keep an eye on that drinking habit of hers...
Let me know what you think of our travels, and tell me where you'd like to see Jane go - and make sure to follow us on Instagram for more #TravelsWithJane!
