When we arrived at the Education centre the the gate was closed??? Perhaps there is another entrance we missed??? We continued onto Hamburg but we expected to arrive within an hour which meant lunch time and it was way to early to stop for the day. We plugged in the next Cabela's into the GPS in East Hartford Connecticut and it said we'd arrive at 4:30 so we carried on to stay there for the night.
We however did not take into consideration that the GPS was taking us on the shortest route and avoiding tolls when possible. By the time we realized it was taking us right into New York, it was too late to turn anywhere else and we were stuck in traffic trying to cross the George Washington Bridge for 2 hours. Ontop of that they charged us $18 to pass! So much for avoiding big cities and we didn't even get to see the Staue of Liberty!
|Absolutely no stopping! Ha we were at a standstill for |
most of the time on this "expressway" to the bridge. Note the normal
highway to the right, they zoomed by us but we couldn't get
off the "expressway".
When we arrived at Cabela's we headed straight to their FREE dump station as we hadn't dumped since Disney (you learn to conserve water very quickly when living in an RV). Ian had the lovely task of dumping while the girls and I stretched our legs on their grassy area.
While doing so I noticed some not very friendly signs.
Not quite how most people spend their anniversary but we were together none the less :) Ian cooked a wonderful Shrimp pasta for our dinner tonight. Hopefully we can celebrate with some Lobster in Maine on Monday or Tuesday. Tomorrow is Sunday and we have to hang around the Boston area to pick up some solar parts in Hudson, Mass on Monday am, then we are up the coast and almost to Canada.
All of our photographers photos are at home on our main computer but I did have a few from friends on our laptop so I will take you down memory lane with me :)
