    Smelly rooms

    Second time staying here. First time I had a great room, but it smelled like some old Arabic man's cologne. Room was clean and looked new. This time, off in the "motel" part in what obviously smells like a "pet" room. They didn't ask me if I minded a pet room. TV isn't set-up, keeps getting a weird Hitachi banner across the top, blow dryer doesn't work. At least this place has a washer and dryer.

    ... low and behold there it is still hanging off the arm of the chair. I guess it was hidden between two chairs or I am sure someone would have noticed it.. I thanked Greg for not getting ****** and that I would never get frustrated with him ever again when he misplaces his keys or wallet. So there you have it in writing, hahaha with all the world as witnesses.

    ... cottage has a cathedral ceiling with floor to ceiling windows. On the one side, there is a kitchen (well stocked) with a peninsula and a couch area on the other side. Out the patio doors is a wide covered porch with a table where we have been eating. The back side has a loft above with a TV, a bookcase (you get insight into the previous renters by the books left behind), chairs and 3 beds and - most exciting for the kids - a Lego set! Downstairs are 2 large ...

    ... and the road is paved through. There isn't much else in the area, though there's a little park on one side where you can sit with a picnic.

    We ate at a riverside restaurant that evening in Woodstock itself, just a 10 minute drive from the motel. Food was good, would have been nice to eat outside on a warm summer night overlooking the Saint John River but it was a bit damp and chilly so we stayed inside. Back to the hotel for overnight, heading across the border first thing.

    ... revamped, some new establishments scattered among them.

    Motels along here were like at home, small, single storey. Not so many of the bigger type that I've become accustomed to seeing in this country.

    In one small town I was taken by the rapidly-flowing waters...

    Greg and I did some shopping in Moncton this morning while StarTwo was being serviced. Our best find was at Xcess Cargo, bug zappers for less than $4 each. They look like small racquets but they are battery operated. Greg tried them tonight, and they work really well on fruit flies. Just swing ...
