Where I stayed
Paul Bunyan Campground
. The guard today even took a peek in the car to see what was in there. One of best parts of returning to the U.S. is the cost of food. Two pounds of lunch meat cost less than one pound in Canada. We never bought chicken in Canada as boneless chicken breast was over $7 a pound. We also no longer had to take the distance to the next location and multiply by .6.
We enjoyed our stay in Canada and saw many nice places, but our trip is not quite over yet. Tomorrow we will go the Gloucester, Massachusetts and we will try to take a whale watch since we missed out on one when we left Cape Breton early.
Today was a travel day, as we packed up and started making our way toward home. Our goal was to be on US soil this evening. The sky was gray and a light rain was falling as we unhooked the utilities and closed up the trailer. As we made our way from PEI to New Brunswick and finally to Maine we had intermittent rain but mostly just gray skies. By the time we reached Bangor, Maine the sky was blue. The first challenge of the trip was the 8 mile drive across the Confederation Bridge which goes from PEI to New Brunswick. Fred is not a fan of bridges across large bodies of water but he did not seem bothered by this one. Although he did count down each mile. From there it was an easy drive across the province. We noticed some familiar sounding cities as we drove so I snapped photos of some of the signs. We even ate lunch in "New" Maryland. At the border crossing we answered the questions of the border guard and were soon traveling down I-95. The border guard in the U.S. asked us far more questions than the one for Canada when we crossed a couple of weeks ago
