Day 8 was Saturday, and we left bright and early (6:20am) to come home. The sun was barely up, and it was going to be another hot day!
We did have two slowdowns coming through Toronto at 5pm on a Saturday. There was this crash in the westbound lanes. There weren't very many emergency personnel there, and the people standing around looked horrified and shocked. I googled when we got home but I couldn't find out anything.
Shortly after this, while we were in the eastbound express lanes, Meg said she had to go to the bathroom! She had just gone when we came through Kitchener! Nothing like having to move over 8 lanes of traffic and find an exit with good bathroom potential while travelling through Toronto! We were lucky though, and there was a nice Shell station just off the highway.
We got home shortly before 6pm and the kids instantly turned on the TV!
This is a small ravine, or gully, between Lou's house and the neighbour. The landscape is very interesting. Although Indianapolis is fairly flat, the micro-topography shows a different story.
This is a bed of beautiful hostas at the neighbours. It was stunning; this picture really doesn't show it well enough! The flowers were a much more intense colour in real life!
Our trip to Indianapolis was great, despite the high heat. I know it might not sound like a tourist town to visit, but really, it is very tourist friendly, with lots to see for visitors of all ages. Great food, incredible architecture in the downtown and along the residences on Meridian Ave, shopping (a Cutco store!!), trails, etc. I would definitely recommend it for those who don't want a beach vacation or don't want to visit a large city.
