The Final Leg

Hi from Port Huron, Michigan – the St Clair River is all that stands between us and Canada now and on Wednesday we’ll cross the Bluewater Bridge, checking out of the USA and in to Canada.

We’ll ride the 144 miles to Hamilton and arrange storage for another 9 months before getting the shuttle to Toronto airport and flying back to Heathrow on the 28th August.

Meanwhile, we have four days of R & R in this nice town of Port Huron.It is a perfect place to be – very much still small-town America, a one-time important port. There are boat rides, museums, lots of great bars and cafes and all are in walking distance of the motel.

The City of Port Huron, stretching for seven miles along the shore of the St. Clair River and the base of Lake Huron, is an international border crossing marked by the spectacular Blue Water Bridge.

Port Huron is known as the Maritime Capital of the Great Lakes with unique sites to be explored… you can immerse yourself in maritime lore by visiting the only existing lightship on the Great Lakes, the Huron Lightship. Tour Coast Guard Cutter “Bramble”  The Great Lakes Maritime Centre for insight on the great lake and ocean-going freighters navigating one of the busiest waterways in the world.  And Fort Gratiot Lighthouse, Michigan’s oldest working lighthouse is calling me back for more photography.

So now I can try to catch up with things on this blog.

More to follow very soon. TTFN 🙂
