Its Friday morning and Al is still snoozing... a few minutes to write.
Leaving yesterday we headed toward St. Stephen, NB under overcast an overcast sky. An hour into Maine and it began to pour and did not look like it was going to ever clear... the raindrops were the size of golf balls and the toughs in the road were filling up... there was one pucker moment... and then we stopped at a little country store with an overhang on the porch and donned the rain gear - preparing for the worse!
We no sooner had the rain gear on and Al quipped "Look, its beginning to let up..." Well, it did and it didn't... and then it did!
US #2 is such an enjoyable ride. There is always something new to see and the items for sale on the side of the road just keeps changing! Motorcycles, motorhomes, boats, lawnmowers and so on and so on... seems like everyone in the USA has something for sale at the end of their driveway! There also seems to be an ever growing number of second hand stores... not sure what this says about the state of the economy but it doesn't seem good.
We arrived last evening in Gorham, NH - a little short of our tentative destination - but we were hungry and tired and it was time to stop. We settled into a little mom and pop motel room, had a drink and then headed over for supper. It was my second meal of the day and I ate a little more Chinese food then I should have (and paid for it at bed time) but it sure tasted good going down!
We have decided to head north today and follow the road that leads up toward Lac-Mégantic. This will be new territory for each of us and as we realized last evening, there are not too many roads in this area that between us we have not travelled on!
Our destination for today is Matane, PQ. We plan to catch the 10PM sailing from Baie Comeau, PQ... we'll see where we end up...
On the Sabbath Road,
