Just about to check out of the Fairmont Algonquin, a beautiful historic hotel in St. Andrews by-the-sea, New Brunswick. In all the crazy to prepare to leave for two weeks holidays, I didn’t get a chance to update my blog with anything exciting. This might be the last reliable Internet connection we have for a while, so I thought I’d check in, but I’ll be tweeting whenever I think of it and you can follow me there at www.twitter.com/digginthedirt.
To get here, we crossed the US border at Kingston and then drove across New York through the Adirondacks, then Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. We were making terrific time, even by some less-oft traveled routes, but then we ran into a major hiccup on Hwy 2 crossing New Hampshire. There was some kind of hazardous spill and they turned us back, forcing us to take a four hour detour that set us back something awful. The last 6 or 7 hours of driving were long and hard, and boring, since we decided to take the Interstate to try to make up for lost time. Stupid mountains making detours impossible! Ha!
All the same, here we are, and it is gorgeous! It’s hot, it’s humid, but it’s finally summery, and now we get to enjoy the sights of the east as we make our way to Fundy National Park for a couple nights.
Oh by the way, happy first birthday to my blog!
