After two weeks in Ontario we packed up the bike & trailer, hugged my Mom goodbye and started the trip home.  Granted, it’s a circuitous route that is taking us south for a a few days but we’ll veer west early next week.

We passed over the Welland Canal one last time before riding into Niagara Falls to cross the border into the U.S.  Another amazingly quick crossing.  Just a few questions about where we’re headed, how long we’ll be in the States and what we’re bringing with us.  South Carolina, then home, two weeks and pretzels.

One important piece of equipment on the bike is our GPS system.  After safely guiding us across Canada and back to Ontario our faithful companion Sassy stopped working yesterday.  Thanks to Clare’s Harley dealership in Niagara-on-the-Lake they moved us to the front of the service appointments line and installed a new GPS system that is bigger and better than her predecessor.

Stopping at the Welcome Centre at the West Virginia border we reserved a room in Morgantown.  We were told it gets very busy with university students returning and Moms & Dads here to get them settled in.  We walked into our blissfully cool room and decided to stay indoors.  It’s so handy to order food online and have it delivered.  Pizza for dinner and cannelloni for dessert !! Tomorrow we’ll travel to the other end of West Virginia and one day closer to friends Gwen & Ron in Hartsville, SC.


Love & hugs from the road…
