Day 3 Niagara Falls 6-25
We are all up and ready to go eat by 8 am. Sitting with our door open waiting for everyone to get around, I am sitting I the room typing on my iPad doing my blog. This man comes up to the door, and ask for some lady. I tell him he is in the wrong room, and he proceeds to come on in. By the time he makes about three steps into the room, Chuck appears at the door, and tells him he is in the wrong room. Poor guy seems to not have it all together, and goes ahead and leaves. As we are getting ready to walk to eat, we see him again, still looking for his room. He has knocked on all the rooms across the way, and still hasn't found out where he is supposed to be. Steve called him a "window licker" and it just really cracked me up. We eat at Bob Evans and it is really good. Our waitress was really nice and took care of us well. Packed up and ready to get on the road, as this is our day we reach Canada!!! It is pretty cool and I go ahead and put on my chaps, and I am glad I did. We have cloud cover the whole day.
Stop for gas just outside of Cleveland, and as we are finishing up this strange rocket car pulls up to get gas.
We make our way to highway 20 cause the guy at the Harley shop told Chuck it was a really a nice ride. We are riding right along Lake Erie. It is really pretty, and the small towns are just beautiful. I did't get to take a picture of the sign when we crossed over to New York. Wasn't expecting it. So many of the towns show dates of 1800's and the homes are just beautiful. We pull into this one town and find this little diner to eat. As we park, the waitress walks out and tells us they are closing, and we wont be able to eat there. So nice of her to come out and tell us before we get all off the bikes and get our stuff off. She tells Chuck there is a couple of places down by the water, and gives us directions to get there. It was only about a mile. It is starting to mist pretty heavy as we find a place to park. There are two places, and as we are getting off the bikes, one of them across the street turns off the open sign. Guess we know where we are eating.
We find our way to the hotel without any problems, and pull into the parking area without a hitch. The guys direct us to an area to park the bikes, and we are unloaded and about ready to head into the hotel to check in, and Chuck ask Steve if he had turned his lights off. He says no, and goes back to the bike to turn them on. They are not working. Guess we will be making another stop at a Harley store to see what is wrong with the lights.
We check in without any problem. We are on the 27 th floor, and the rooms are totally awesome. They actually look just like the pictures that we had seen on the Internet. After we get settled om the rooms, it is time to go and explore the area.
