~ 2 572 miles ~
Here I am! Back in Chi-town after 2 572 miles in 8 days.We went through Indiana,Michigan, Ontario, Quebec,New York,Pennsylvania,Ohio,Indiana and Illinois.
It was great to take this trip and equally wonderful to come back home.
Here are a few pictures...
we had to try these beauties, of course they looked a lot better than they tasted!
I really enjoyed taking a double Decker tour bus of Toronto.
Tim Horton's much cuter than Dunkin'Donuts!
ah...the little details, quarters are called "loonies" after the bird:
I would much rather knit than drive!
Despite the rain, Quebec City was spectacular:
The changing of the guard at the Citadel in Quebec City:
On the way back, we had to stop and see the Niagara Falls,the kind of sights one does once in a life time.It was touristy of course but worth seeing, very impressive:
And even closer to home,Indiana Amish Country, a place I had never been either and would love to discover in the Fall.
the famous verses came to my mind:" Heureux qui comme Ulysse a fait un beau voyage..." and now instead of scrapping, a broken fountain,an untidy yard,several loads of laundry and a very dirty car are all screaming my name! I have yet to learn how to come back from a trip and enjoy catching back on the choirs.Any advice?
