I enjoyed Niagara Falls so much that I stayed two nights so I could take in some of the area where there are local private vineyards. The area is well known for its range of white wine but there are some very full reds produced. At last, in Canada, I could have a glass of wine with my evening meal. What a refreshing change from the puritanism of the ‘land of the founding fathers’!
I walked down the river on my second day and enjoyed that – also meeting locals for a chat. I took in the tourist adventure of ‘The Maid of the Mist’. It is boat with a powerful engine which takes tourists, complete with blue plastic capes, slowly past the American Falls then into the Horseshoe Falls. I enjoyed it greatly – so here are a few pics of that adventure. I later set off to discover Toronto and Ottawa.
