    One Last Stop

    January 22, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 43 °F

    Before we left, we had to stop at the Student Union so that Veronica could turn in her keys to the dorm. I was surprised by how nice the Student Union here is. It's so clean and colorful!
    So, the cars all packed up, she's said goodbye to her friends and her keys have been turned in. We're ready to go home! Bye, SUNY Geneseo!Read more

    It All Fit!

    January 22, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 41 °F

    I can't believe that everything fit in the car! It's shocking how much stuff that Veronica had at school with her. I've never stayed in a dorm but, if I did, I think that the stuff I'd bring would be very minimal. Most of the carrying was done by Veronica and her friends while I arranged everything inside the car. Working together, the four of us got it done a lot faster than I expected. Team work is always a great thing!Read more

    The Pick Up

    January 22, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 41 °F

    I'm at SUNY Geneseo now. I'm here to pick up Veronica and taking her back home. I'm surprised by how much stuff she has packed up to take home with her. I hope that we can get it all in the car! I'm glad that we're using the big Honda Pilot. If we had anything smaller, I don't think we would have made it.
    This is Veronica's dorm building. Her friends helped a lot with loading up the car. This is the first time that I'm meeting them but they seem very nice. I know Veronica is going to miss them a lot.

    Back in the USA

    January 22, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 37 °F

    I just passed through the customs station at the border and I'm back in America. This was a much easier and pleasant experience than what I went through as I entered Canada yesterday. Was it really only yesterday? It feels like it was longer than that. The American border officers were very friendly and, after a look at my passport, let me through right away. Since it's early Sunday morning, I didn't even have to wait on a line. I was the only car there to pass through. It's great to be back in the USA!Read more

    I'm Going Home

    January 22, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 36 °F

    It's time to start going back home. Goodbye, Canada! I'm not sure when I'll be back but I hope my next trip to the Great White North will be more enjoyable than this one has been.

    Ready to Leave

    January 22, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 36 °F

    I'm all packed up and ready to get back on the road, just as soon as the traffic light lets me leave the hotel parking lot. It will be good to see Veronica again. It's going to be a long, lonely drive in this fog to get to SUNY Geneseo. At least I have my Chewbacca, a bag of donuts from Tim Hortons, and some great music to keep me company.Read more

    Bye, Kong!

    January 22, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 36 °F

    As I take a last look back down the streets of Clifton Hill, I see Ripley's King Kong shaking his fist at me, as if warning me not to come back. With all the bad luck I've had on this trip, I'm half way to taking him seriously!Read more

    Signs Everywhere

    January 22, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 36 °F

    The fog, combined with the street being completely deserted, gave everything an eerie otherworldly feeling. I really wanted to stay and shoot some more but it's almost time for me to hit the road and pick up Veronica at SUNY Geneseo.Read more

    Niagara Skywheel

    January 22, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 36 °F

    I passed here on my way to Tim Hortons to get some doughnuts for breakfast. I like how everything looks, so empty and deserted. I wonder how much longer it will be until the tourists start coming out to explore Clifton Hill.Read more

    The Shooting Gallery

    January 22, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 36 °F

    I don't know how I missed this place last night, especially with all these bright vivid colors. I'm surprised this is all left out in the open while the place is closed. Even if people leave it alone, the weather up here in Canada can be rough, especially in the winter months.Read more
