Had a good drive home yesterday. It was an easy 7 hour drive with a couple of short stops. At the border we were first stopped by the US border guys, as they were looking for someone/something. We weren't it, so they waved us through; wonder what they were looking for? We then answered a couple of questions with the Canada border guards and they waved us through. Oh and then we paid our $3.25 CDN to get back into Canada! We crossed over at Fort Erie, haven't been at that border crossing in a few years. Windsor is generally where we cross over.
We had a good time. Probably won't go back there again. As usual ate too much and suffered for it!! Had fried chicken on the last night and I had chronic heartburn all night. I know better.........but I just had to have some of that chicken and I HAD to eat the skin as well!!!
For the first time ever we were very pleased with the hotel. It was lovely and clean, the staff were so friendly and pleasant. The breakfast provided was good and filling. The only negative thing if I had to pick something, was the sofa in the room was uncomfortable. A couple of big squishy chairs would have been better. The hotel was called The Wallhouse Hotel in Walnut Creek, Ohio. It is actually like what the photos show you. It is very modern and totally the opposite of what you would expect in "Amish Country," but I would highly recommend staying there if you decide to visit that area. I slept like a log there, despite there being a relatively busy road opposite the hotel and the bathroom was roomy with a huge walk-in shower, which was perfect for us. It is a big more expensive than a regular hotel in that we paid on average after all the taxes etc., around $150 USD per night.
So now we are back at home and back to normal. Ploughing through the laundry. Catching up with everything that has happened and getting on with things. It was nice while it lasted and it was the break that we wanted and needed. Glad we went; shame the shopping wasn't better, but great on my pocket book I guess!!!
