Dildo

So, I am in the process of making a Bucket List because I am slowly coming to terms with the fact that I will not live forever.
I thought, maybe the smart scientists would have come up with a way for us to never grow old already, but nope.
So there are things I need to do before I see my daddy again in Heaven.

One of those is a road trip to Dildo, Newfoundland.
Yes.
It is a real place and I want to see it.

Reasons I Want to Go On a Road Trip to See Dildo.

1.  So I can have my picture taken next to this sign
2.  It is in Newfoundland, Canada and I hear it is a beautiful area of the country.  The ocean is pretty, right?

3.  Maybe I would see a whale....or a dolphin because it is near the ocean and "Seeing a Whale" is also on my Bucket List.

4.  The population is less than 1000.  I don't like people.  Except you, of course.

5.  Meg Ryan went there with John Mellencamp, so it must be a nice place. 

6.  It will only take 34 hours from my house.  3 kids, a dog and a husband who listens to Bluegrass music to keep me company.  No problem . 

Ugh.

7.  The fishing. OK, that's not true because I don't fish and I would probably catch something huge and scary and it would pull me into the ocean and then a shark would eat me.

8.  Harrowsmith magazine voted Dildo as one of the ten prettiest towns in Canada.

9.  The many Bed and Breakfast Inns.  I have never been to a Bed and Breakfast.  Do you have a private bathroom while staying at a B and B?

10.  The photographs.

Have you been to Dildo? 
 
Mamakat is cool.

As I started reading this I'm thinking, what the crap is she talking about Dildo for on the blog?! Then, as I continued to read, I realized that your list of reasons to go see them are perfect! I love the idea of spending 34 hours in a vehicle (NOT) and I think the fact that it's voted in the top ten would make it worth it! I live in a town of 600 and love it :)

ha! I remember while driving all over the East coast on our honeymoon Big Yankee & I searched for inappropriate towns and cities. I'd make a road trip with you just for the photo!

Definitely MUST have your photo taken by the Dildo sign! I regret not doing that when we were in Intercourse, Pennsylvania last year.

Great blog post!! There's places in Ireland called Meanus, and Muff (there's a diving centre in Muff). :P

I also hate people, though the problem with a small population is EVERYONE knows each other so you have to make small talk. Eeek!

Could not resist clicking this one from Mama Kat's --
Definitely need a picture by that sign!

Never been there but I've been to,
Intercourse, PA (and had my picture taken next to the sign there).

If for no other reason, you NEED to go (despite the 34 hours in the car with the bluegrass-lovin' husband and kids) is for a picture with the sign!!

You may not love people, but I don't fall in that category of course.

Umm...the picture next to the sign is a MUST. The perfect profile picture if there ever was one. (I love that there is an arrow too. Ha.)

When I saw your blog post title at the Writer's Workshop linkup, I knew I'd love your blog. Your post made me LOL. OK, maybe not actually the OL part. But I did L. On the inside. That counts, right? Following you now! :) Tinalicious.com

You just have to wonder what people were thinking when they named their cities. Dildo. I had no idea. And now, I must go too. Love your list!

Every B&B I've been to has had a private bathroom. You're welcome. LOL
I love your reasons for going! Do it!
