|May 2 - We woke up to light rain. Fortunately the heavy stuff waited until we had our outside chores done!
The scenery between Quebec City and Riviere du Loup is some of my favourite, with a backdrop of mountains, the St. Lawrence River and then the strips of farmland with some century plus houses. Mike was glad of the rain - I didn't ask to go on the shore road this time!
The roads from Levis to Riviere du Loup were a great improvement over yesterday's, and a roadside sign reminded us of the cost of maintaining highways - $870,000 spent on a small section. More needs to be spent, though - we were glad to get into New Brunswick and their newer highway.
After yesterday's stop Mike is in 'go' mode and so there was no RV resort planned - we stopped at the Salisbury Irving Big Stop where we fueled up and then pulled in between two semi-trailers. We're still getting used to the higher fuel prices - $1.089/liter (which works out to around $4.21/US gallon). This is our last stop on the road.
