The Final Chapter in our Canadian Tour

The Royal Ontairio Museum is a treasure trove of dinosaur bones and quirky exhibits. They have an extensive collection with over 6 million objects. Among the highlights? “Kunti” (the blue lady)…

And the shrunken head.

I also really enjoyed the exhibit that compared the olden suits of armor to the “new” modern ones…

There was an extensive exhibit of asian artifacts.

And a gazillion dinosaur bones.

Among the other highlights? Evelyn found some very realistic birds, including her favorites, owls.

Also, the bat cave was very nice, though I had no idea they meant actual bats and those things were creepy!

Afterwards, it was time to head back to the states. This provided us with another valuable lesson in convertible ownership. Reading large paper maps with your top off is challenging.

Since we still had some Canadian cash and the Winery Road appeared to parallel our journey, we thought it just made sense to make a few stops. The first winery was Ridge Road where I purchased a lovely rose and they provided me with a map of the vinyards and a recipe for strawberry sangria.

The next stop we made was at Angel’s Gate. We only stopped there because the lovely ladies at Ridge Road told us not to stop at Puddicombe which was where I wanted to go just because I thought the name was awesome. But Angel’s Gate had lovely views and was right across the street from the 30 Bench Winery, which was super convenient.

One the road again, we passed through customs, and for the record the American customs agent was much nicer than the Candaian! And then we headed into Buffalo.

Where we ate Buffalo Wings at the Anchor Bar.
