Now it’s time to hit the road for real, since Saint Jean Port Joli where I stopped for an already late lunch is only about an hour outside of Quebec City and I have to make it to my friend Dani’s in Hampstead tonight. I’ve already emailed ahead saying not to hold dinner and bought some treats since I know I’ll be getting in late and not getting much visiting time in.
So for this leg, I’ll show you photos because really that’s what I did. Drove and took photos.
A stop in Kamouraska
It was beautiful and lovely, but it was a long haul so we couldn’t wait for sunset.
As we hit New Brunswick the light leaves us.
It had been a long day, but we still have about 4 hours more driving to do.
There are a couple of small adventures that happened along the way, but the biggest thing was how much I loved my high beams on these mostly unlit highways.
