The room was clean and cozy. It had a jacuzzi tub! It was very quiet except for an occasional vehicle on the street. The breakfast bar is available all day long!!!

There was some construction on the way that delayed my trip, but I didn't mind in the slightest, because that meant that I got to spend more time sitting with the trees and watch the river flow by.

By that evening I had reached the boarder of the States and Canada ...

Safely, with coffee in hand we exited. (Just so you know, we don't have anything against gambling or casinos, it's just that we once said if we were to end our relationship, we would just say, "let's go to the casino..") I know, we are strange.
