Day Two: Canada?? Eh...

Today's task was two-fold. First, before leaving Niagara Falls, we needed to experience the Maid of the Mist. It was the best $16.50 we spent today. We were lucky enough to get towards the front of the boat, so we got some pretty cool pictures. We decided that this was all we needed to do before leaving, so we headed out to Toronto. The ride there was interesting. Not quite what we would have expected, but Lake Ontario was rather impressive. It was a pretty quick drive, so when you drive into Toronto, the first thing you notice is the CN Tower. We decided to find somewhere to park and get out to walk around. (Pretty sure the angry money collector cheated us just because we are American.) We walked down the boardwalk, which was really cool, but not too much to see other than boats for tours. We stopped to watch the street performer, but he wasn't really doing much more than just begging for money. We continued on and met a guy who was so surprised to see twins. Luckily the trolley went by and ended the conversation. (Pretty sure he pushed his friend down who was cleaning his wounds from rollerblading...) We were going to go movie stalk, but had no idea where to go, so we'll say that there was indeed a star in the limo that pulled up next to us. Other than that, there was not much to the city. We were going to stay in the city, but decided to carry on to our next destination.
There is not much between Toronto and Michigan. We wanted to leave Canada today since it just wasn't very interesting. We crossed the border at Port Huron this afternoon. It is now 9:47 and the sun has finally set. It's weird eating dinner at 9:00 and it's still very bright out. And with that, it is bedtime, with a really comfy bed!!
(Oh, and of course we pick the hotel that has no view of the fireworks but will keep us up for a little bit longer!)
Promise the link to the pictures will be up tomorrow!
Until tomorrow!
