Top Travel Destinations For 4Th Of July
These jaunts prepared me for trips further away, e.g. Niagara Falls which is 120 kilometres and 80 minutes south of Toronto; Peterborough, 137 kilometres and an hour and a half drive north; Buffalo, USA, 160 kilometres and one hour and forty minutes south; Ottawa, 450 kilometres and four hours and a quarter northeast; and, Montreal, 505 kilometers and five and a quarter hours driving time northeast.
One trip I regret not having made. As much as I wanted to; and, tried to make it, I never did reach the 147 kilometres up north to the popular Wasaga Beach.
What I did, occasionally, manage to do was to make the weekend trek to a cabin or resort by a lake. Cold during winter. Great during summer. Each with experiences galore.
One Christmas, while staying over at my WASP wife’s ex-husband’s home, I went, cut, rolled and helped tied up a six foot spruce tree in Ajax.
Another time, I went with her to some far out place within the Greater Toronto Area to pick strawberries; and, to Kingston – 262 kilometres and nearly three hours northeast – to visit her American father and Canadian mother on their 25-acre farm.
What do you think I saw there in a barn – a thoroughbred horse? No! Not one, but two vintage, classic 1945 cars in mint condition.
