We got away from Nan’s just after 8:30 and were at Kel’s just before 10. We are taking Kel’s car so reloaded our stuff into it and were on the road by about 10:15 a.m.

Entering Quebec

We had a good drive and arrived in St. Johnsburry, Vermont about 7 p.m. The drive through Montreal was quite good and we had mostly nice weather with just a couple of short downpours along the way.

We got checked into our hotel room and then headed out to Goodfellows Tavern for dinner, the gal on the hotel desk recommended it and we had a great dinner and not too terribly expensive.

We are all tired so probably will be hitting the hay shortly. Tomorrow we only have about 300 km (185 miles) to travel so will do some sight seeing and shopping along the way.

We woke up this morning to a completely flooded lot, this is the 3rd time in three weeks this happened, needless to say we are getting kind of tired of this. When we left this morning we had to wade through water half way to our knees to get to our truck.

We left about 11:30 to go to Kitchener where I had an appointment for a lymph massage, then we met my sister Pat at our son’s house and John took Pat & I to Bolton to our daughter Nan’s where we all spent the night. Nan, Pat and I are leaving here in the morning and going to Kel’s where we are heading out on an 8 day trip to Old Orchard Beach, Maine. Should be fun, with 2 sets of sisters and a mother, two daughters and aunt/sister combination.

And so ends a great gift of a day and we look forward to another great day tomorrow.
