Day 64

3. July 2000, Bay City to Niagara Falls

Today we drive through Michigan to Ontario, Canada. We enter into Canada again, passing over the St. Clair, connecting Lake Michigan and Lake St. Clair, on which Detroit lies. We drive mostly through farmland and have to keep up with navigation as we keep changing direction almost every 3 kilometres, taking a crisscross route from Bay City to Port Huron, from Sarnia to Niagara Falls. In Ontario, unlike in the Western parts of Canada, a lot of the British heritage can still be felt. We have dinner in a place called Niagara-on-the-Lake (Lake Ontario), which has many Victorian-style buildings and an English restaurant (with an American angle). Busch Canada employees from Montréal and Toronto give us a wonderful welcome in Niagara Falls, Canada.

Which way to London? Take the left lane.
But this is London, Ontario, so we probably need to drive a few more days before we have London, England signposted.

Today's driving is all crisscross through the countryside with many stops, many instructions and all kinds of different roads we drive on.

People in Ontario like to have their lawns in perfect shape.
