We had been planning to leave Flourtown, PA right after Memorial Day for a four-month sojourn in Serena to Eastern Canada, but when I fired up the refrigerator, I discovered it wasn’t working properly. Week after week passed, wrong parts came and went, and what started as a faulty refrigerator gasket mushroomed into the need for an entire new door. We whittled down our itinerary to exploring only Nova Scotia and possibly Prince Edward Island, and by July 20 we were ready to hit the road.
As they didn’t want us to leave without some fanfare, Arthur and Liz invited us and good friends Pam and Jim for a little going away party. Always the gourmet, Liz prepared a delicious Limoncello Granita, served over a colorful array of fresh berries worthy of any Ristorante di la bella Italia. Darn! I didn’t think of taking a picture until we had all practically licked our plates. Returning home will be easier when we are welcomed back by friends like these.
Getting into to the swing of things, rather than drive back to PA, we decided to spend our first night on the road, boondocking at Camp Costco in Moorestown, NJ. A peaceful night until about 6 AM when the Costco Zamboni crew noisily swept through the lot, cleaning and readying for the day’s business. Taking that as our cue, we headed out to begin our adventure.
