After we left London, we took the backroads down to the north shore of Lake Erie. It's a really nice drive along the Talbot Trail...no traffic and a nice road surface driving through farm country.
We saw a sign for a conservation area and so we took a short dirt road down to a nice walking area on the shore.

We left the conservation area and continued west to the Port Glasgow Marina and Yacht Club. We had stopped here for the night exactly two years ago so we knew that it was a good spot for a peaceful nights sleep. And sure enough, it was...only heard the sound of the waves all night long. Nobody else around.
Sherman, parked for the night
And what a nice night it was. Full moon and clear sky at dusk.
Just finished putting another $50 of gas into Sherman. Will enter the U.S. later this morning, so we'll fill up again there because it is at least 20% cheaper. We're at an Esso gas station and about to get back on highway 401 to take us the last 90 kms (54 miles) or so to the border and the city of Detroit. Then, as we did two years ago, we plan on heading to the Cabelas store for the night because they have free RV parking, and water and a dump station.
Here's our drive from Friday...
