This post will be short and sweet, since we have an early wake-up call for our drive from Boston to New York City tomorrow. We began the day in Montreal, stopping by the famous Schwartz's Deli before setting out for Montpelier, Vermont.

In Montpelier, we explored the picturesque city--the smallest state capital in the U.S. by population--after chowing down on a lunch prepared by students at the New England Culinary Institute. From Montpelier, we headed south to Barre, where we stopped by Hope Cemetery, which is home to some unusual headstones, as well as to some very old, very artfully sculpted grave markers from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

From there, we headed south across scenic Vermont and New Hampshire highways towards Boston. I swapped back into the automatic-transmission SES Fiesta today, and I found myself enjoying the slightly uplevel content. I continue to be impressed with the car's highway behavior, and the seats aren't bad either, although a little more thigh bolstering and a slightly less-flat bottom cushion would be appreciated.

Tomorrow, we mark the last leg of the journey--which is being cut a day short by the impending arrival of Hurricane Earl--by driving to New York for some more photo ops. I will post about that tomorrow, and post a more detailed overview and photo gallery of the trip on Friday.

For now, sleep beckons.
