Americans In Canada6:27 PM
I have soooo many photos to share from our trip this past weekend that it is insane! However, I am super busy today (second summer class already?!!) So here are a few randoms that I really love. I will try very hard not to bombard you guys with so many photos in the next few posts but we had such an amazing time and we still didn't do everything we wanted (that is usually the way it goes right?).
Haha, waiting to cross the bridge on a Friday night, a little crazy! Right now the entrance to the bridge is a mess on the Detroit side. There have been plans to build a second bridge for a few years now from Detroit to Canada, and it has been a battle because the bridge owner, Manuel Moroun, holds the monopoly of commercial truck traffic. The Ambassador Bridge can be pretty picturesque, just not when you are holding your camera outside of the car window while someone is driving. I love driving across it because it is such a short distance between two countries. You can clearly see both Detroit and Windsor at the same time, split between the Detroit river. There is also a tunnel, but who wants to take the tunnel?
We stayed in a the Sturgeon Campground in Leamington, Ontario and I did not take any pics of the campground, fail! I actually wish that I took more of Leamington but we barely spent anytime downtown. I did take a few pics of somethings that I thought were pretty cool though. There is a giant Heinz factory right before downtown and I kid you not, it smells like ketchup. It was windy on Friday and as we drove past Kyle and I both just looked at each other and wrinkled our noses, ew! I am more of a mustard girl myself, but getting a big whiff of ketchup was pretty funny .
I really liked this little cafe/dinner/convenience store called Blondie's that we stopped at. The employees were really nice and it was full of these little old men sitting around eating and reading newspapers. Naturally Kyle and I fight right in hehe. They had this giant train set hung up on the ceiling that ran throughout the entire store. I know that if I lived in Leamington I would be at this place all the time. I am not sure if it is a Michigan thing, or just a Sara thing, but I absolutely love dinners. Seriously, you can always count on them to have the same basic things and delicious coffee.
We also ate this awesome place"Paula's fish fry" that was located right outside of the campground. The place looked like it had been decorated in the 90's and then never updated since, I loved it! The waitress basically just sat and chatted with us the whole time because we were the only ones in there (it was really late). We shared yellow perch, sweet potato fries, corn, rolls, and rice. We also tried this tasty beer Rickards because Kyle and I are all about the beer and the coffee hehe. I really liked it, but I tend to like most beer. Except when fruit is added, that is just weird.
Alright I promise to have a better post tomorrow but now I gotta go scrounge up some food for dinner and get started on my homework.
