Moncton, New Brunswick (because the Old one is too far to drive to)

We’re in Moncton, NB. I didn’t take any pictures yesterday—it was drizzling on & off. This is just a stopover on our way to eastern Nova Scotia, where we’ll be for the next four days.

Quick restaurant review… on our way up from Augusta, Maine, we stopped at a little seafood shack in Bangor, called McLaughlin’s Seafood. It was good, but not as good as Hingham Lobster Pound. Their shrimp tasted more like homogeneous fried seafood than shrimp. Their clams, haddock, and scallops were good, but not stellar. Their fries were quite above average, though. Hmmm… McLaughlin’s Fries might be a better name.

For dinner last night, we didn’t get fancy. We opted for spicy chicken Caesar salads at Wendy’s, and then blizzards at DQ.

We’ve been at the Rodd Hotel in Moncton. We’re in the L part that was the original motel, years ago. We decided it’d be nice to be able to back right up to the room for a change. As it turns out, “outside entrance” is code for “good place for smokers in a non-smoking hotel.” Getting to and from the car last night meant coming through a smokescreen. Fortunately, the room itself isn’t smoky, though, and none leaked into this very allergic traveler’s room. The beds turned out to be quite comfy, and we slept like proverbial logs. Aside from the smoke, my only other complaint is the internet wireless signal. It comes & goes, and loses connection at least several times an hour.

Our next overnight destination is a cottage in Boutilier Point. It’s supposed to have internets. My fingers are crossed. Time to pack up and hit the road.
