Trying Out Our French in Montreal, Quebec

We so loved our tour of Ontario, and the time we spent in the Maritimes, we thought it was high time we visited the Province nestled between the two, Quebec. We were  visiting friends in New York, and it’s only

The Not So Easy Big Easy

You can plan just about everything you need for a road trip, except the weather. We arrived at Fairview Riverside RV in Madisonville, Louisiana just as a cold front came through bringing 40 degree temperatures and driving rain. The park

Wawa, No (Live) Moose, But Plenty of Poutine

Leaving Rainbow Springs Provincial Park we crossed northern Ontario and followed along the shore of Lake Superior.  We were headed for Wawa.  I had found it on the map, on the eastern shore of Lake Superior, in the middle of

O Canada, Home of the Freshest Lunch Ever

We have driven the RV on a lot of back roads (and many of the major highways) in the United States, but at this point we had yet to venture into Canada. Leaving our shabby fishing camp in Baudette, Minnasota

If we are near Atlanta we must be in traffic

Hubby usually avoids driving the RV anywhere near a major city. Get on a major highway, near a city, and you face unfamiliar interchanges,  rush hour traffic, and frenzied drivers. It’s one of the reasons we stick to the back

Magnolia Plantation

Song of the South: Charleston, SC

We have visited many times, lived there both part-time and full-time, and when we are done wandering would like to return.  (My first choice would actually be Manhattan, but Hubby won’t step foot in the place. Too much noise, too

Lobstah Dinners and Other Summer Fun

There is nothing like New England seafood. Haddock, steamers, scallops and lobster have become a staple of our New Hampshire diet. As soon as we get down to Portland we’ll add fresh swordfish to that list. (for some reason we

Cana Isl. Light

Door County, Wisconsin: lighthouses, cherries and cheese

Think Green Bay and what comes to mind? The Packers? Cold, snow filled sunday afternoon football?  Certainly not an idyllic body of water, cute towns and harbors, cherry pie and pastoral farmland. We were on the start of our tour

Road Oddities

Traveling the back roads in the RV we have seen some odd sights. There’s no accounting for peoples taste when it comes to  how they dress, or the color they paint their home, or the items they choose to “decorate”

P.E.I. Mussels, Green Gables, and Friendly Foxes

I love mussels. Mussels in White Wine, Diablo, Marinara, it doesn’t matter. Give me a bowl of mussels, some fresh bread, and a glass of wine and I’m good to go. Add some “Frites” (french fries for the uninformed) and

On Surviving Nor’easters in 300 Square Feet

Our Summer in New Hampshire has started with a Nor’easter. Three days of driving rain, cool temperatures, and flooded roads have pretty much confined us to the motorhome, and challenged our self-entertainment skills. As always the internet is a portal

The Old South: Vicksburg and Natchez, Mississippi

Driving down Highway 61 from Memphis and our stop in Clarksdale we continued south to Vicksburg and Natchez, Mississippi. Vicksburg, sitting high on a bluff over the Mississippi is an historic Civil War town. We stayed at the Magolia RV Park,

Getting the Blues on Highway 61

Delta Blues that is.  Think Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and Wllie Dixon; juke joints and cotton gins.  US highway 61 meanders south along the Mississippi from Memphis, Tennessee toward Natchez, Mississippi. We had been to Memphis before, but the last time

Road Food: The Healthy Kind

There are all kinds of road food. Driving across the country we try and sample as much of it as we can. From out of the way Taco stands to diners, drive-in’s and dives, we love to find great food at

Nova Scotia: Scarecrows and Thunderstorms

Yesterday we were finally starting our five month road trip to New England, heading north through Georgia, happy to be on the move again. As we approached Valdosta the sky darkened ominously,  lightening flashed all around  and thunder cracked above.

Happy Cinco de Mayo. I always appreciated that the whole country threw a margarita and nacho-filled birthday party for me. I’m taking the day off and celebrating all that is good in my life, and that is a lot.  Usually

Memphis in May

The month of May brings flowers to mind for some, but May makes me think of Memphis … and barbecue.  Yes, I know, there’s always Beale Street with some top notch eating places and lots of great music. But you
