So we spent a night in Canada
and found out our You Tube TV subscription didn't let us pick
up the SEC channel that would be providing the
University of Kentucky/Florida football game.
You Tube only picked up channels provided by cables in the area.
We also noticed the only cable U.S. news channels provided in
Sudbury were the liberal news channels.
Nowhere was the opposite end of the U.S. political spectrum provided.
Since we hadn't had the best of time in Canada,
my gut feeling told me this wasn't the time.
Needed to try another part of Canada another time?
We decided to spend the day getting back across the border somewhere
so we could watch the 7:30 pm ballgame.
We were afraid to try Toronto and fail to be able to watch the game,
plus hotel prices were outrageous.
I later found out the film festival was going on in Toronto.
We had a great breakfast at Microtel.....BACON!!!!
and it was a frisky morning of 48°F.Since we had a lot of miles to cover,
and were tired of rough roads,
we decided to try the interstate.
It was a great ride!
The only rest stops on this highway
consisted of 2 portapotties,
but at least a large parking area so trucks could stop.
Immediately we started see rock balancing.
Many sightings all the way to Toronto.
Would you believe the speed limit was 55mph on this interstate type highway?
Unbelievable. Yes, everyone passed us as if we were standing still.
We had to wonder if this was the minimum speed limit?
After all the minimum on most U.S. interstates is 45 mph.
After about an hour of 4 lane driving,
it went to 2 lane, but still smooth road.
Not sure a lot of rock balancing was going on,
but the rock stacking was interesting.
For miles on the 2 lane highway,
there were temporary "no left turn" signs
at every single turn off.
We finally decided the left was property bought for building another 2 lanes.
We began to get see some beautiful lake scenes.
Back to a 4 lane highway about 2 hours north of Toronto.
This one house on an island reminded me of the Thousand Island area
around Alexandria Bay in upstate New York
Some gorgeous farm land began to appear.
As we approached Toronto
the road became wider with more lanes.
and more traffic.
The time was about 1:30 pm on a Saturday.
