We left Lake Winnipesaukee, NH on Friday and headed to Mt. Washington. Mikey and Brock were on Mt. Washington almost six years ago to the day, on foot, headed North. Isn't it magical when life comes full circle like that? This time we took the Mt. Washington Auto Road & made it up in less than an hour. It's honestly other-wordly on top. We tooled around at the summit for a little while, snapping photos & enjoying the view .... Mikey reminiscing and telling me stories of when he and Brock were there. We hopped back in the car and headed into Maine for the night. We didn't have big plans for Maine on the way through, so we stayed in the dinky town of Ellsworth for the night before pushing on to the US / Canadian border.
On Saturday we made our way to the border for stamps in our passports! Solomon & Ez got their first stamps & Amos received his 4th! Whooohoooo! We made it into Saint John, New Brunswick in time to snag a hotel and find dinner before the rain started. Saint John somehow had the big city feel but was still a quaint town. We had dinner at a pub and found the local candy store...(the boys had spending money from Honey and Pop & Ria) needless to say, we walked away with a huge brown paper sack of candy! We didn't get to explore Saint John very much because we had over a 6+ hour drive the next day to make it to Sydney, Nova Scotia, so after breakfast we loaded up and hit the road again!
