The bad is the fact that a mosquito bit my right eye. [I believe] My eye was swollen almost shut, but no black and blue, so no-one hit me.

The ugly, is me trying to get around with one and a half eyes when two can't read French as it is.
Hi, the first picture is of the out door café that we ate at. This was the highlight of our stay.

Traffic was horrible due to road blockage and construction everywhere; Caroline hard a hard time directing us due to all of the detours. Even with a police escort, we were stuck.

Then to make things even worse, there was an event/march? So the Police blocked even more streets. Like driving in Los Angelus again, and why we moved.

Hi, this morning we left Montreal, Canada and headed to the nearest U.S. border. The border guard was nice to us. "Where did you go in Canada?" Montreal. "Was it what you expected?" No. "They have a great beer there, did you have one?" No, I quit drinking decades ago. Lee said that she wished she had known about it and had one. "Where are you from?" Oregon. "What do you do there?" We are retired. "Must be nice?" That's what you get when you get old. "Where are you going now?" Vermont. "WHY?" Because we have never been there before. "Don't blink your eyes or you will miss it." "Can I see your registration for the trailer?" Yes, here it is. "Have a nice trip." THANK YOU.

Hi, this morning we left Montreal and cut through a corner of New York. We headed for Vermont; Vermont has beautiful green rolling hills. They probably call them mountains. We stopped for gas and it was a very tight squeeze even though we were the only ones there. I once again managed to escape damage. Sometimes I surprise myself. Later we were at a rest stop/view point. I was walking Dusty when two women in an F-150 pulled up to me and asked about my trailer. They said that they own an Argosy. Then they asked how old Dusty was and couldn't believe that he is 18, in October. Next she looked at my trailer again, and stated, Oh, you're really far from home. I thought that was a New York license plate. [Oregon trailer plates are Orange and Black] We also saw a few covered bridges; I was going to drive though one until I saw the sign saying that 44"s is the limit. Vermont has Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory tour and there was a Maple syrup tour too, but we flew past them and we weren't turning around.

Hi, my eye is getting better with some help from Lee; I was able to see with both eyes today. We stopped in Vermont, at a Costco and got everything that we wanted/needed. Back to normal again. I like the green Vermont license plates; These should be the ones called "Greenies" not Colorado plates. The numbers are easy to read and outlined with a white border. Next thing we know, we are in New Hampshire. We are at a campground called White Birch. Trying to save a dime and not spend money on what we don't need for our one night here, I asked for water and electric only when I was given that choice. While I was setting up, I noticed that this sight did have a sewer connection, but I wasn't going to use it because I only paid for water and electric. Anyway, The camp ground owner came up behind me and said "Hi" and put a padlock on the sewer cap. WOW, do people steal the sewer in New Hampshire??????? I have never seen anyone lock up the sewer cap.

If dogs could talk.

Hi, this morning Dusty went out at 4:00 AM and did everything. [you know what I mean] He was milling around in the trailer, so I made his breakfast for him. Usually, if I make his breakfast too early, it sits until he's ready for it. Dusty ate his breakfast right away. When we had our breakfast, Dusty wanted something too. So Lee gave him some of our scrambled eggs and his traditional Canadian Bacon. Later in the day, Dusty got some of Lee's Costco hotdog. He loves those too. Later he was in the back seat fussing about. Does he need to pee? Stopped twice. Does he need to poop? Stopped again. Does he just want to stretch his legs and walk on grass? he loves walking on grass. Well he di everything [you know what I mean] and was still fussing about. Gosh, I wish he could just tell us what he wants. We got to our camp sight and it was close to dinner time, so I made his dinner for him. Dusty ate his dinner right away and was circling his plate. So I made him another serving of his food and he ate that all right away too. Now he's just fine. He usually has two meals a day and maybe something extra. Today, Dusty was extra hungry for some unknown reason and had about four meals.

Better check Dusty's stool for anything unusual. Does Dusty have all his teeth? My Shih Tzu has lost most of her teeth but otherwise healthy for being 12 1/2yrs old. I don't expect her to last 17 years like Dusty.

Sounds like Canada was a total bust for you. Hope things improve. So for the price of that campground where they locked your sewer do they have a dump station or is that an extra charge?

Hi, Dusty's stool, is and was normal, so he's OK there. Three Vets told me that Dusty had impacted teeth and would most likely need some teeth removed. After his operations, I asked how many teeth had to be removed and they said none. At one time, one of the Vets told me that Dusty had only one tooth missing and there is no record of having it removed, so it must have just fallen out.

I didn't need a dump because we flushed our tanks at the previous stop. I think they might have had a dump station. They probably charge for that too.

Hi, we drove from New Hampshire to Maine; Our last stop was very close to Maine. We drove through Maine to the upper tip, very close to Canada, and we are going to begin touring Maine along the Atlantic coast, on HWY 1. I saw a sign at a Mc Donald's advertising Lobster rolls. Lee said that was one of the things we had to try. Oh well, there will be another Mc Donald's soon. It was a very long drive until there was another one. We did have a Lobster Roll and it was OK. It was cold and not buttery. We plan to have a lot more lobster and other sea foods for Lee. Dusty got a cheese burger. We found a camp ground about 1 1/2 miles off of HYW 1 and we were parked next two other Airstream trailers. One from Pa. and one from Az. They are both red number people and they toured parts of the East Coast and Canada. They said at one time there was 44 in there group. Tomorrow these two go their own way. I told them that we travel alone. Nice people. Greeted us right away.

For a good lobster roll, I think Red's is hard to beat. They've been in business at the same location for as long as I can remember and that goes back to the late 50’s for me. They are located in Wiscasset. Coming south on Rt 1, it will be on your right just after crossing the Sheepscot River. It's a walk up window to order with a few picnic tables nearby. The street in front of it is pretty narrow, so plan on driving past and look for a place to park a few blocks away and walk back. I don't think you will be disappointed. The last time I was through there they were redoing the bridge, but I don't think it bypasses the town yet. That bridge has been a bottleneck as the tourist traffic has skyrocketed over the years.

As for lobster dinners, the best places are right on the water, where you order at the window then carry your tray to a picnic table on the docks. Promising locations are Rockport, Boothbay Harbor and Bailey Island, but most port towns sprout a shack or two and none are bad. Prices will vary widely. The 1.25 to 1.5 lb lobsters are often the sweetest. If you like the tail meat, they often offer a deal on a pair of lobsters that are each missing a claw, that way you get 2 tails and 2 claws. I've got a list of lobster shacks. If you want, pm me and I'll email a copy.

Hi, today we drove along Hwy 1 to Bar Harbor, Maine. We stopped at a Wal-Mart on the way And parked by two other Airstream trailers. We are in Bar Harbor, but not at Bar Harbor; Yes, I'm confused too. We spent a ton of money at Wal-Mart and still forgot two things. My beard is getting too bushy and needs to be cut down to size. Not wanting to bring too much stuff, I left my electric clippers at home. I guess I will have Airstream electric clippers soon. The pony tail stays until long enough to donate. I stuff it in my hat when we cross borders for a safe measure, but shouldn't have to. Anyway, I think we are done with border crossings.

Lobster.

Hi, we passed a place that was packed with people, so this must be a good place to buy a lobster. It was expensive, but huge. They boil them in pots outside and serve them on a big tray. Everything is extra, like butter, and they didn't blink an eye when taking my $100.00 bill. We enjoyed it.
