I plan on making a digital scrapbook of all our pictures and souvenirs from our vacation, somewhat as a trial run for those wedding and honeymoon scrapbooks I have yet to make…oops. But until the scrapbook happens, here are more pictures from our recent trip.
Niagara Falls! We learned that 20% of the world’s fresh water resides in the Great Lakes…with most of it flowing over Niagara Falls.
Journey Behind the Falls. Yes, we got wet.
Maid of the Mist. We did take the boat voyage, which is pretty much just like an amusement park water ride. And yes, we got wet here too. That’s why I didn’t take any pictures from the boat.
We stayed at a bed and breakfast in Niagara-on-the-Lake, a small town on Lake Ontario right at the point that the Niagara River joins the lake. It was only a 30 minute drive to the falls, and it was nice to stay away from the tourist traps of the falls. Plus it gave us the opportunity to explore the local area a bit more, including…
Visiting a winery.
Hiking along the Niagara River.
Biking along the Niagara River. We are on Canadian soil, with the United States and Old Fort Niagara in the background.
We took lots of time to relax.
And eat lots of gourmet food. One of the best things about this bed and breakfast was the AMAZING breakfasts.
Vacation was a nice break from reality. This summer is turning into a hectic one, but it was nice to do something to properly celebrate Dave’s birthday and two years of marriage.
Wait, TWO YEARS? That doesn’t seem possible.
I know, I know, you’re thinking that you’ve been married for five years, or thirty-five years, but you probably knew what you were doing when you got married. Dave and I have been completely winging it these last two years. I’m sure it’s obvious!
