The trip didn’t go precisely as planned.
There was no stop in South Carolina, Delaware or Pennsylvania. Instead, my first overnight stop was in Statesville, NC. I arrived early in the evening while the sun was still shining. Took a small tour through town, which looks pleasant enough. Stopped at a Mexican restaurant near the hotel, then done for the night.
Day two had me stopping, late afternoon, in Youngstown, Ohio, where I met up with a friend. Some hanging out at the hotel, which had an onsite restaurant and bar. Across the parking lot was another Mexican restaurant. Food was excellent as was the service.
Weather played a large part in changing my return trip.
We left Youngstown after only one night. The temperature was 21C when we left. Forty minutes later it was 8C. There was a huge rainstorm after we crossed the border into Canada, and by the following day everything was covered with snow.
Now I’m back in Toronto, high in the sky while I plan my next trip.
