What do you think of when you think about the Provinces of Quebec, New Brunswick and PEI? Do you think of potatoes? No? Neither did we, but apparently these are the potato capitals of the world. NB and PEI both have potato museums, so you know it's big.
This is somewhere in New Brunswick. Look at that patch of yellow agriculture. We never were close to one of the fields (as if I'd know what's growing, anyway) - the intensity of the color was just amazing.

This is how GPS looks driving across much of New Brunswick. Bring a map!

Somewhere in Maine, after leaving the library. Maine is also potato-centric.

PEI has red dirt. It's not clay, it's iron. The iron in the dirt rusts when it's exposed to air.

Is it not lovely?

Yesterday was pretty much tied up with getting the truck serviced. Today has started with an unsuccessful search for a place with strong wifi. My aircard limps along at the park, the advertised wifi is undetectable. So, we're currently at the Best of PEI Market having a pretty good lunch and connecting to the grid. Jim is very excited to see his email for the first time in 2 days.
So, we're here until Tuesday. Posting may be light unless we find a better wifi spot.
