Managed to get out of the hotel by just before 8, but after navigating Queens and Brooklyn traffic we probably lost a lot of our early start. Stopped in New Jersey at a pull-off travel centre with a food court and had Burger King for breakfast – yes, I know, how unhealthy!! Then back on the road through Baltimore (I couldn't stop singing 'Good Morning Baltimore' from the movie 'Hair' – well, at least the first line of it as I didn't know the rest!) before stopping at an RV Park in Maryland where we stayed 2 years ago - a book I bought on e-bay got sent there accidentally, so we're making a short detour to pick it up. After grabbing the book we got hopelessly lost and snarled up in  Washington D.C traffic, what a mission!

We finally made it out of Washington D.C and into the state of Virginia. We stopped for lunch at Stafford, VA, at a Bob Evens restaurant, which is a chain restaurant we stopped at a couple of times last trip, but had forgotten how good the food was & how cheap! I had a turkey dinner, which was sliced turkey breast and enough stuffing for 3 NZ helpings of stuffing, baby carrots, mashed potato & gravy, cranberry relish & two huge biscuits – all for $9.99. Note – this was actually our 'dinner' as we didn't get there until nearly 3pm, having forgone an earlier lunch! Bought a 'Amish Friends' cookbook, which I'm looking forward to sharing with my more culinary able friends in Island Bay. :0)

So far today have driven/touch on 6 States today: New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Washington D.C, Virginia & lastly North Carolina! About 1200 km driving! Staying the night in Durham, North
