July 18, 2016 – Larra: The southernmost point in Canada, Point Pelee is a peninsula extending into Lake Erie, caused by the currents in the lake. As a kid, Jim and his family would come here on weekends when visiting his family in Leamington.
We parked in the last lot and walked down to the point. On our walk we passed a sign that marked the 42nd parallel, the northern border of California.
So not only did Jim take me “down south” from Michigan to Canada, he took me as far south as Northern California!
