August 25, Friday Moving day, drove about 200 miles to Edmundston. It was a nice move, partly cloudy, and good pavement all the way on Trans Canada #2. The campground hosts were very nice and couldn’t do enough to make us welcome. We created our own individual pizzas on the grills, visited a bit and watched as the campers kept coming and coming until 9 pm.

August 26, Saturday Ate breakfast at Au Bout Du Monde in Edmundston as recommended by our hosts, it was disappointing and we would have been better to eat at the Café’ Flora at the Botanical Gardens in Saint-Jacques, N.B. We enjoyed the gardens, waterways and waterfalls teasing about how we could duplicate them in Fleming Island, FL when it rains too much. In the butterfly area one butterfly really liked Mike’s black shirt. We strolled through each area and took pictures of our favorites in hopes of remembering enough to use the ideas at home. Luc Cyr, resident artist, sculptor demonstrated and gave us a sample of his spruce carving. The stained glass artist was not in this morning. We strolled the vegetable garden and were surprised to see so many vegetables we were not familiar with. After working up an appetite we decided to go to Boston Pizza-they were very busy and the manager said he had called in more staff but it would be a bit of a wait. We stayed because we had no other ideas. The pizza was wonderful and worth the wait. The staff was very pleasant and tried hard to make the long wait bearable. After eating we went to the Petit-Sault Blockhouse for a tour-peeping through the window openings and seeing Maine, USA across the Saint John River. We returned “home” and did some laundry preparing for our move to Quebec City tomorrow.
