We picked up Holly and Shelly from the Detroit airport, and since we were so close to Canada, we went over the border and walked around for a little bit to say we've been in Canada.
Here we are:
The area we went to wasn't very impressive. There were a lot of nightclubs, bars, and cheap gift shops. We found that the exchange rate varied from store to store, apparently they can charge tourists whatever they please. *Grin* We stopped into Starbucks, a pizza shop, and a gift shop for Shelly to buy a charm for her charm bracelet.
But now we can say we've been out of our country, if just for an hour!
There was a very pretty park that we went to, right on the river. Now that would have been nice to spend a little time walking in, but we didn't realize how large it was, until we were driving by it. There were a lot of interesting sculputres in it.
Holly, Shelly, and I each have a digital camera. I can see that a good portion of their visit will be spent in comparing pictures. Hehe
It's fun to have them here! I'm looking forward to this week!
