Our Journey South

Paul and I left Beresford on Monday 28 December to start our journey south to Surfside Beach, South Carolina.

It was a mild sunny morning when we set out. As we drove north into Campbellton the trees were covered with fresh snow that had fallen overnight. It was like driving through a scene on a pretty Christmas card.

As we crossed over the New Brunswick border into Quebec there was more snow on the road sides but the highways were clear.

We make a short stop at a rest park along the highway. Usually in summer or fall when we stop here we enjoy our picnic lunch outside on the tables provided. But this trip everything was snow covered so we ate our sandwiches in the warmth of our car and enjoyed the pretty scenery outside.

After 6 1/2 hours on the road we drove into Levis, Quebec where we stayed the night at the Econo Lodge Motel. We enjoyed a nice dinner and a quiet evening.

This morning we were back on the road at 10 a.m. to continue our drive to Brockville, Ontario. The drive today was quite windy with light snow drifting across the highway. After a little rest and a light snack at the Tim Hortons in Valleyfield, Quebec, we continued our drive and arrived in Brockville around 4 p.m.

We will spend a couple of days here visiting with family.
