Leg 3 – Saint Jean Port Joli to Hampstead – #LexGoFurther – A Ford Adventure

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.Travel Bunny at The Madawaska

I always think of these mountains as being giants sleeping.

So for this leg, I’ll show you photos because really that’s what I did. Drove and took photos.

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.
