Sarnia, Ontario to Port Huron, Michigan

July 18-19, 2016 – After touring Windsor, Leamington and Point Pelee, I couldn’t justify to Larra touring much else.

I grew up going to Canada on weekends to visit family and help out on their farms, and it’s hard to share 20 years of memories in a few hours, or even a few days.

So to avoid the long delay at US Customs returning to Detroit, and to avoid Detroit rush hour traffic, I headed to Sarnia, Ontario, to cross back into the US on Tuesday morning and breeze through Customs.

I learned in Sarnia, at the hotel we stopped at, that Hotels.com quotes prices in US dollars, so the room wasn’t the great deal I thought it was.

Still, we had a good night and a nice (free) breakfast before hitting the road for Bellaire, Michigan.

Smartass.

IMG_9713I drove up the coastline 20 miles or so, before heading inland for Saginaw, Michigan, and on to Bellaire.

I stopped at a county park so Larra could dip her feet in Lake Huron. Two days ago Larra had never seen one of the Great Lakes – now she’s seen Lake St. Clair, and dipped her feet in Lakes Erie and Huron!
