Drive to Massachusetts

Thursday we drove to Massachusetts. The weather was great, sun was out, really, there was essentially no traffic. With one or two exceptions, we travelled at speed the whole way up. My favorite exception was driving north on the NJ Turnpike. We saw a police car speed past us, lights flashing, but no sirens. We wondered what was ahead, and indeed, about 5 minutes later we hit a slow down. We were in slow traffic for maybe 5 or 10 minutes, at the end of which we saw that a cherry picker had bumped into a box van, smashing the doors in. No injuries, just amusing.

Most of the ride was calm and uneventful. C7 had a schedule she wanted Q5 to follow that involved playing games, reading books, and movies. All was fine, the schedule was not exactly followed, but they did watch a couple of movies. But because the sun was out ... they had to watch like this:


They didn't actually watch the screen much. C7 is WAY back into dogs, so when we stopped at a rest area we took a spin around the parking lot to pet all the dogs. Our favorite was a pair of Shitzu from Maryland headed to Connecticut. I think they liked us, too, because the owner's grandmother was named the same as C7.

Blah blah blah, long story short we had lunch at Katz's Deli in Woodbridge, Connecticut. LOVED it. Best place to stop. It was almost filled to capacity and cole slaw and pickles were excellent. It is just south of the Tunnel on the Merrit, if you are ever driving that way.

Made it to Massachusetts in time to head to the park to play for an hour, take out a few books at the Library (not called Ritter Memorial Library anymore?) and watch the crazy lights on the house next to the library.
