Stopping for a rest in Sainte-Marie we enjoyed their friendly information center and clean restrooms. Just behind the center a boardwalk led to this bird viewing platform.
Driving further South, the hills and farms of the Rivière Chaudière valley were a verdant green.
We truly enjoyed the culture and people of Quebec and appreciate their patience with us Anglos.
By noon we were crossing the border into Jackman, Maine. This was the first time we have had an officer inspect the inside of the van. She was polite and commented that she really liked the interior!
We pulled off at the first rest area and felt a little uneasy. A pick-up truck with Maine plates was parked diagonally in front of us sporting a "Right Wing Extremist" bumper sticker. We decided we would move on and find another place to stop.
Thank you Randy & Linda for hosting us in your driveway again. Sure wish we lived closer.
March Farm in Bethlehem, Connecticut. Not only on our way, we wanted to spend a night here so we could add Connecticut to our sticker map.
Harvest Host, we bought some fresh vegetables, bread, and blueberry jam at the farm store in exchange for a free overnight parking spot.
We ended the day driveway camping in Laurel, Maryland thanks to the hospitality of my old RIT buddy, JoAnne Woytek.
After another fun, but short, visit we were up and headed south again. We traveled route 301 which, though it had a few stop lights, was much more scenic and relaxing than the multiple lanes of I-95.
