Where I stayed
Mactaquac Provincial Campground

So I haven't shared this on any blog yet but our little VW van has been having an electrical issue.  The auxilliary battery which powers various outlets and the inverter has not been charging and it has been a pain in the rump.  Also, the last couple campgrounds required an electrical adapter to plug into which we did not have. 

Enter my amazing wife!

While I have been fretting and trying to do research on the internet, she just talked to the staff in French at our campground in Quebec City and found out that they have adapters they lend out for just such unprepared campers.  She asked if we could buy it and they said no, but referred us to a local RV center that does.

This morning we made our way there and my amazing wife continued to dazzle me with her linguistic skills and explained to the mechanic what our battery issue was.  He quickly diagnosed the issue as a faulty solenoid and made the necessary repair.  We were on the road in no time and everything is right as rain.

Oh, and I also forgot that she had a good 10 minute French conversation at check in with the staff and sounded to me like she had lived here all her life.

I am lucky to have her in more ways than one.  Not many women would have the courage to undertake this adventurous journey.  She's a keeper!!

We have arrived in our new campground in Mactaquac, New Brunswick.  It is so beautiful here!  Tomorrow we make our arrival in Antigonish, Nova Scotia and can't wait to see our friends Carol and Steve.

Til next time.
Scott and Kerry
