We a here at the farm now, ahead of schedule !

Where are we today ?
        We got up early as usual in our hotel room, al little too warm but no problem. Had a shower, free coffee, computing and watched a bit of news on TV just waiting for a decent time to hit the road. Finally 7:10 and took luggage out to the car, and scraped the ice from the windows (BRRR) and turned on the heat to warm things up a bit. Don't much like this real cold weather and we are still in Kentucky.

        So we are on the road about 20 minutes and said to Suzie looks pretty foggy up ahead, real thick fog too. Guess what it was a real fine snow fall swirling on the road but sticking to the grass, not fog at all. Well its been a few years since we had to deal with snow, kinda forgot what it looked like.......
        But the rest of the day went real smooth, sunshine, good roads and not too much traffic. Two fuel stops and a couple rest areas to stretch. Gotta pee too ya know.
506 mi (814 kms) today
a bit of traffic in Cincinnati 
        After Cincinnati we ate our lunch, no need to stop today either, leftover pizza, then Suzie can have a nap.
Suzie resting her eyes a bit today
Bridge to Canada at Detroit
THE Bridge
no line at customs
        Pulled into customs he asked a couple questions and said have a great day too easy. Now you know you are back in Canada EH!, Tim Hortons and The Beer Store some of the first things we saw.
         Hopped on the hwy 401 for another 3 hours to home, the new rest areas here are full service and very busy.
new rest areas
        Now all is going well, great weather still and actually arrived at the farm 3:36pm, could not believe it. I had predicted that we should be there around 3:41 pm, (just for fun) on Wednesday mornings posting. I was off by 5 minutes got there ahead of schedule.
there is the farm
the laneway
Omer there to welcome us
        Now here, a quick trip to the store and caught an awesome sunset on the way back.
Suzie and Omer relaxing
        Sandy had put some garlic sausage on to cook, and I peeled a bunch of potatoes, whipped up a tossed salad and we had more than enough when Suzie's mom and Dad dropped by for supper at 7 o'clock.
        After supper, they sat around played a few card games while I sat back and listened while I was playing Blogger again.
Cards and good conversation
        Thats it for our two travel days, here until Monday morning and very busy everyday, then we head back south to hopefully much warmer weather.
         Thanks for dropping in again. Think its time to put my feet up for a few minutes, then goodnight!
