Jumping the Border

Ambassador Bridge

After crossing the Ambassador Bridge into Ontario and sitting in a waiting room for extra "checking" on our passports, my sister and I went for some geocaches. We didn't get far into Canada on account of the FREEZING (not really, but it felt like it) weather. We really just wanted to say that we've been to Canada and also that we've been geocaching there.

We parked our car and walked along the path in the Odette Sculpture Park and grabbed four caches.

We also had a little fun with some of the sculptures along the way...

Poor Elephant!

We headed back to the car to warm up and we then exited Canada via the Detroit/Windsor Tunnel.

  1. I've been to Vancouver a few times and love it there. That's the only area of Canada I've been to, though. Sounds like you guys had fun hopping across the border, hehe.

  2. I live in Ontario, Canada! You were in my hood...sorta. I'm guessing you went to Windsor? Sarnia? I live closer to Toronto.

  3. Cute pics!

    I live in Toledo so we used to go to Windsor all the time since the drinking age is 19 there. FUN!

  4. @Jessi, I'm jealous. I've always wanted to visit Vancouver.... someday!

    @Allison, Yep, Windsor. I don't think we made it even a mile past the border ;-P

    @IrisTook, Nice! None of our parents would let us drive that far..... ah, who am I kidding? ... I wasn't even that daring enough of a teenager ;-P

  5. I've never been there, but it's on my to do list. I'm guessing summer would be best for us lowlanders!

  6. I hope you enjoyed your stay in my part of the world! On a sunny day, I can see the Ambassador Bridge from the end of my block! Yes, it is a bit chilly, but it gets MUCH MUCH colder! You were fortunate! It wasn't sleeting!

    Your grandmother is VERY talented! Beautiful work!

  8. When I was younger, I went to a place called Wapoos Camp near a small town called Picton just before Labor Day each summer. It was amazing to drop the boat in the water, park the car in the apple orchard, and stroll out to the boat every morning. There were 6 or 8 cottages at this family-run camp along the north shore of Lake Ontario.

    We still like to do 'around the lake trips'. We either drive west and cross at Detroit with a return near Niagara Falls for a trip across Lake Erie's southern shore, or we drive east to cross near Niagara Falls and continue east dropping back into the US north of Watertown. Either way, it's a beautiful country and a great place to take a break.

    We want to finish the Seaway Trail series next summer. Maybe we can start at the far eastern end by driving across Canada.
