After a very enjoyable evening in Quebec City, we’ve made our way through St. Louis du Ha! Ha!, on route to Fredericton. Merci to all who attended the show last night; thanks Siobhan for putting us up and for the delicious snacks!
The drive has been quite scenic, driving through the plains of the lower St. Lawrence that hug the south shore of the river, and looking out at the various hills and mountains that pop up along the way. In terms of bird sightings, we haven’t seen much but crows, the occasional robin and a lot of red-winged blackbirds along the side of the highway. Perhaps we’ll have more luck once we get closer to the coast. However, it feels good to be back in the company of moose warning signs and the looming threat that makes us feel forever badass.
Our collars popped up, sunglasses reflecting the yellow paint of the highway divide; it feels like we were born for the road. Who needs to worry about rotating from your stomach onto your back on a sandy beach, when you can just rotate from the left side to the right side of ‘ol Van Der Bird and balance out that gradual tan on a seven hour drive?
Speaking of Van Der Bird, we had a near scare yesterday when she wouldn’t start. She’s tough and we managed to start her up, but she’s been a bit cranky ever since. (It seems as though there may be a problem with the starter that may require some looking into.) So cross your fingers for us! We’ve just arrived at the Cedar Tree Café & Bar in Fredericton in no time to play with Margo, Margo and Cedric Noël.
More from us soon,
