  2. Gary I suggest you cross the border at I am assuming Niagra..... then you want to head east. You should stop somewhere in Quebec for some food, then again in Fredericton, hit the market there for some Samosas. Jump out at the beer store and pick up some picaroons dooryard ale, (organic wheat beer with a hint of coriander and orange) then east again til you hit the causeway. once you get to the causeway, you just follow the fleur de lis trail til you get to my door!
