I was on my own for a few days, Mike/Passenger had flown back to Vancouver for a festival, so I had 3 days to get from Columbus, Ohio up to Toronto. I headed north-east to Cleveland and then followed the road along Lake Erie towards Buffalo. I stayed the night at some lonely little roadside hotel, then made my way into Canada the next morning, briefly stopping to catch a glimpse of Niagara Falls before continuing onward around Lake Ontario, with no real destination in mind. I kept driving north, away from Toronto, until I reached Lake Simcoe, then took my time exploring little places here and there, searching for a place to stay the night.
I kept driving for what seemed like hours, and it probably was actually. I couldn’t seem to find anywhere to stay the night and I wasn’t having much success finding dinner either. Eventually I found a trailer park and booked a bed for the night. I asked where I might find dinner and I was told there was only one option - Ryan’s, just five kilometres down the road. It was such a classic looking place, with no seating area, just a door leading to a little window where you could order and wait.
I really like this photo, I don’t know why, it’s something about the lighting I think, the sun had disappeared and maybe it made this place look cooler than it might in the day time.
