We're home! Now to try to tell the story of our trip a bit more thoroughly (and with photos!)...
On Friday afternoon, we packed up the car and set off:
We pulled off the highway briefly at a scenic overlook not long before we reached the Canadian border. Exile #3 and E5N1 were happy to stretch their legs, but what was concerning Exile #2 and Exile #4?
They were trying to spot Mount Katahdin through the mist. We managed - but with a bit of photographic enhancement, you can make it out better than we did:
After an uneventful border crossing, we drove to Fredericton, the provincial capital of New Brunswick, where we had arranged to stay in a student apartment at the university.
It was great - especially for E5N1 who often finds himself sleeping on an air mattress on a hotel room floor - and instead had a bed, and a room to himself.
