    After lunch we quickly crossed into Ohio and were heading towards Columbus.

    We arrived at our hotel near Eire on the shores of Lake Eire about 7:30pm. There was an amazing sunset underway so the wife jumped out of the car to take photos, I parked and did the same. It was only afterwards we got our bags and checked-in. The following photos were taken by the wife on her iPhone and she has applied a filter (which I hate her doing). But it was spectacular none the less.

    And so day 3 ended after another 568 miles for the day. We settled in for a well earned dinner highlighted by poor service and the first five items we tried to select off the menu not being available. Go figure that. There was no tip.

    On day 4 we had a bit of a wander around the hotel precinct and lake front.

    You can see why folks apply filters, a practice I hate.

    Didn't think breakfast could be worse than our dinner but was wrong. The only breakfast available had to be ordered like a takeaway at the coffee bar. Took forever to order, forever to get it and was on the whole disappointing. To make it worse I hadn't realized there was a Sheraton next door where I was a smidgen away from being a Lifetime Platinum and generally got treated like royalty even if I was being obnoxious.

    So the plan on day 4 was to drive along the lake front on minor road number 5 as far as we could before joining the larger roads and interstates and heading to Buffalo then Niagara Falls. There is a bit of wine grape and fruit growing here so we stopped at one of the farm shops to buy some local produce. It was an honour system. Select, weigh, pack, price and pay for it yourself.

    Not long after leaving Eire we crossed into New York state and eventually road number 5 became a main road and took up further along the lake front and into Buffalo.

    Nice sunset and flower pics, cheers.
    I've lived and travelled more on the Eastern coast, never been to those parts.

    I've had the good fortune to work and live in the US twice. The first was two years based in Denver in the mid-90s managing an airports technology business for the whole of the Americas. The second was the more recent 16 months in Phoenix. In both cases I was able to travel for business and leisure extensively. Not getting much feedback on this thread yet but will press on an complete it and then reassess any more. Tough audience to impress at times. Regards, -BiP

    PS! Just remembered it was three times. Did a ten week consultancy for an airline in Dallas in late 2012 and at the end decided to drive from Dallas to LA via Albuquerque. Driving like that is one of my passions and is shared by my Thai wife as well. But those days are now over.

    We arrived in Niagara Falls around mid-day and parked close to the hotel. Only 111 miles on day 4.

    We walked down to the park and viewpoint for the American Falls, then up to Hells Half Acre, then checked into the hotel and late walked around the city centre and drove out to Goat Island for a closer look at the Canadian Falls.
