Woke up this morning in the land of the French. We bid our French friends goodbye and toured the city for a bit. By the time we left Quebec City, our French was pretty genuine. Our thank-you note below can attest to that. We also checked out the ramparts before we left (old quebec city fort).

We then hopped back on the trans canada en route to the maritimes. It was a pretty uneventful drive through Quebec before the crossing into New Brunswick, province number seven. We decided to take a quick detour and check out the world’s largest covered bridge. We drove across, took some neat pictures, and then drove back. The bridge was a bit of a novelty considering there was a huge two lane steel bridge next to it. The covered bridge was only one lane.

Once in Fredericton, we met up with some engineering student from UNB. They showed us around the town and then we called it a night and crashed on their floor.
