|This is how it looked, everywhere!|
|What an appropriate name for this hotel as a spot to pose my Welsh Corgis!|
|This town was SO classy, even the dog water/treats were served on a Silver Platter! Really!|
|Some of the sidewalks looked like this........Hmmmm, what could a maple leaf stand for?|
Both liquor stores I saw, here in Niagara-On-The-Lake, and in Niagara Falls, had this cute sign in their windows ......
|There's that maple leaf again!|
It was a very warm day (but still much nicer than home temps!), so after finishing up on the main street, we headed to a park right on the lake. There was a small beach area where the boys were able to cool off. They promptly found a stick and did a few rounds of fetch. I think you've all seem enough "swimming with a stick" pictures to last you a lifetime so I'll spare you those :-)
Here are a few posed shots after the swim.The lake is a gorgeous blue! That's Fort Niagara on the American side in the background (or so I was told).
|Enjoying the shade and watching the seagulls.|
We took the QEW (Queen Elizabeth Way) highway to get here, and took the Niagara Parkway on the ride back. It winds though endless wineries and along the banks of the Niagara River. Here's another example of the beautiful water....
|The wires are for a tram ride, but it wasn't running at the time.|
We headed back to the room. The dogs were exhausted, we needed showers and a break before heading out to see 4th of July fireworks.
Here's the end of the evening, the American Falls as dusk was falling around 10PM.
This last picture made me smile. Look at the sign of our times....So many people holding up their smart phones to record the fireworks.....
|I see little white phone orbs everywhere!|
We got up early the next morning and bugged out! It was a short but very sweet trip! The ride home consisted of an hour (!) stopover at the duty free shop (with me baby-sitting the boys, a very long hour indeed) at the border, followed by a long line through customs, followed by missing our exit in Buffalo and taking the l-o-n-g way through the area.
As the sign in the liquor store said: I Heart Maple Leaves! .....I Love Canada! It was a great trip!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
