Crossing the border next to Detroit we were surprised about the big difference - driving along the Erie Lake all the neighborhoods looked perfect from the houses to the gardens.
Even the grass in front of the cornfields where accurate trimmed.
Then it was time for another highlight - the Niagara Falls. And though we have seen a lot of waterfalls they were really impressive. And it was funny to see all the small blue points coming from the States and all the red points from Canada all crowded on the ships or walking in a line up to the falls.
On our way to the coast Canada's big cities where all lined up, the first one was Toronto. As it was a really nice day we drove next to the waterline checking one of the beaches.
Next was Canada's capital city Ottawa. There we visited the government buildings which remind us of the Harry Potter Books.
The capital was followed by Montreal a multi cultural city with nice old houses all similar built with outside stairs leading to the first floor.
Then it seemed like there was a invincible wall and suddenly everybody spoke French. Our favorite city was then beautiful Quebec overlooking the huge Saint Lawrence River where we spent a nice afternoon discovering the old city and climbing a lot of stairs ;)
Soon we crossed the border to the States again - welcome to the Lobster State Maine.
Suddenly we saw traffic signs warning about Moose again, as Maine is a wild state.
Our aim was the Acadia National Park, famous for the rocky coastline. There we had a refreshing swim in the 14 degrees Atlantic Ocean and of course you couldn't leave Maine before cracking the shell of a lobster ;)
See you next week on an island not only we, but also presidents like a lot.
