We started the day on the subway again heading downtown. Then to the aquarium.
We started the morning EARLY. Leaving the hotel before 6:00. We swung by McDonalds since the hotel was not serving breakfast yet. We went back to the subway for the long ride in to downtown.
At Union station we boarded a Via train (think Canada’s version of Amtrak) for a two hour ride to Niagara Falls. Some sleeping was done on the train.
Then back to the train station for the two hour ride back to Toronto and back to the hotel to get some rest.
We had a slow start today. Took it slow cause we were not in a hurry.
We checked out of hotel number two and hit the road towards Toronto. We went through a tunnel under the river.
We ate lunch in London at some Canadian place called Wendy’s.
we got to our hotel around 4. Then left soon after to get on the Subway to go downtown.
Subway back to car and then back to hotel. Have. Early start tomorrow. Good night.
After a quick breakfast at the hotel, we drove to The Henry Ford museum. We first went and took the Ford Rouge factory tour where they build F150’s.
We ran to Boston Market for dinner and then back to the hotel for the night.
Our train got in to Dearborn at 11:50pm. We walked next door to our hotel and went to bed. We took the morning slow to catch up on sleep, but I did go at 8:30 to get our rental car.
We checked out of that hotel at 11:30, got some lunch and then headed to the Motown Museum. No pics allowed inside but it was a fascinating tour.
We then drove over to the Ford Piquette Avenue plant. This is the first place Ford built the model T. Interesting stuff. The best was us running into one of the board members who showed us a bunch of cool historical stuff and even some behind the scenes stuff. I think he could tell I was a history buff.
So then we headed back to Dearborn and checked into our second hotel. The first was a nessesity because of the late arrival, not one I would have normally picked. Not bad, but not great either. Anyway, our second hotel is much better and much more room.
After a dinner at Panera, off to Comerica Park to watch the Tigers play the Giants.
Back to the hotel and to bed to rest up for tomorrow.
