Thursday Morning

Dear People:-

     We have been on the way since Tuesday noon and are little more than half way to Halifax.  However we are certainly enjoying the trip and are seeing many interesting things.  We are now traveling along the St. Lawrence below Quebec.  This morning when I woke up I saw the water just outside and thought it was the ocean but it was only the St Lawrence which is about 10 miles across here and you can hardly see the hills on the other side.  Am feeling fine, so are Archie & Euart . Love John
