Thanksgiving in Erie
On Thursday morning Natalie and I drove to Erie. We left Toronto at 6 a.m. to avoid traffic at the border, which was a great move because we cruised right through. It was the first time that I didn't have to wait even a second for an empty lane. I monitored the Peace Bridge website most of the day and there wasn't much traffic nor was there any on Sunday morning when we crossed back over at 10:30 a.m. But there were some delays later Sunday afternoon. Most of the delays were from Canadians taking advantage of Black Friday deals (Thanksgiving in Canada is celebrated the second Monday in October). Highlights in Erie besides seeing my familyand eating turkey were playing football with my nephew and Scrabble with my dad and walking on the beach. We got really lucky with the weather--the temps hovered in the low 60s, which is crazy-warm for the end of November. Speaking of crazy-warm, yesterday I was in New York City where the temps reached 67F! I will tell you about that trip next week.
