Then we were charged $5 for crossing the bridge? Never understood that.
We crossed over at Windsor into Detroit. If you have never been to the States before crossing there is an eye opener especially if you're travelling on the I75 as it takes you through a rough looking part of Detroit and the highway is in desperate need of repair. Once out of Detroit things take a turn for the better and as it was a Saturday the roads weren't that busy. If you drive in Canada driving in the States is a doddle and vice versa.
We only drove 8 to 9 hours and ended up in Florence, Kentucky. We were here by just aback of 4pm, so what should we do I wondered? Heck, lets go shopping!!! Hobby Lobby was my first port of call. Only bought a magazine with my 40% off coupon and a yard of material that I wanted.
Supper was at this restaurant:
Dh had this:
I had their version of a Cobb Salad; wouldn't have it again and sorry about the quality of photo, the place was very dark. That is advocado on the top of the salad.
Dh had a beer with his meal, I had water. Cost $35 with tip, which is the cost of an average meal in Canada. Gas/petrol is a heck of a lot cheaper here at $3.55 USD per gallon.
The hotel we stayed at I'll post about at a later date as I will be emailing the manager and want to see what the outcome of his response is before I post about it. Lets just say I don't have a lot of good things to say, and you will never believe why!!
When we get to our cabin I don't have internet access, so unless I can pick up someone else's Wi-Fi I won't be posting. I have prepared posts though while we away and do hope to check in where free Wi-Fi is available.
