Boy, are these photos late! We’ve been back from Canada for four weeks and I’m just getting around to posting some photos. The trip started off with a flight to Toronto and a visit with old friends and former neighbors from Texas, Henry and Tina. Since we had only one full day to sightsee, Henry and Tina gave us two choices: whiz around Toronto or take a drive over to Niagara Falls. We picked the latter.
Here’s a view of the falls on the American side along with the bridge connecting the US and Canada.
And the obligatory photo of tourists with the falls in the background.
And here is the much more impressive Canadian side. If only those tourist would get out of the way.
A close-up of the Maid of the Mist. We decided to not find out if our cameras were waterproof.
Instead, we opted to take a stroll through the Great Falls Portal, a tunnel bored through bedrock that goes behind the falls.
All that excitement created quite an appetite so we found a little place with a view for lunch.
One last waterfall photo before resuming our tour. And, despite my post on Facebook, this wasn’t taken from our canoe.
This part of Ontario is one of Canada’s leading wine-producing areas so of course we had to check out one of the local wineries.
Next stop was the village of Niagara-on-the-Lake, just across the river from Old Fort Niagara on the US side.
A quaint village with plenty of tourists the day we were there but still charming. Loyalists from the colonies settled here after the American Revolution. If I ever come back, here’s where I would stay:
And just in case Humphrey ever reads this blog, two flora photos.
