Niagara on the Lake–Ontario Canada

Niagara on the Lake, a pretty little tourist town on Lake Ontario
is just one of those picturesque little quaint places where you immediately feel comfortable
as though you have stepped back in time. . .and yet you still belong. . .

the problem is. . .I get to a pretty little tourist town like that. . .
see all the cars, and all the people everywhere. . .
my photography brain just shuts down. . .I got nothing. . .
so. . .with that said. . .and so you can can see how beautiful it really was. . .
I will refer you to our friends, Margery and Paul’s, blog. . .
you will see they did a lot better job of capturing it than we did. . .

I did however, capture a beautiful shot of the beautiful “French Castle”
located at Old Fort Niagara, which I will write about later. . .

on our way back home, we passed one beautiful vineyard after another,

but, we were most amused by this little chapel,
located at a farm stand where we stopped to have ice cream. . .
we decided if we ever wanted to start a church,
this would be the exact size of building we would need. . .it seats about four people. . .
‘cause that’s about how many people would show up if we were doing the preaching. . .LOL!

and on to the lovely border crossing. . .we were fortunate. . .only a thirty minute wait. . .
it’s pretty easy actually. . .you show them your passport. . .they ask questions like. . .
did’ya drive all the way here from Texas. . .uh. . .yeah!
Our Texas plates get us a lot of attention when we are this far from home. . .
Kinda funny really. . .they’re just doin’ their job. . .
and off we go. . .back to the motorhome to rest up for the next adventure!

Til then,
Janice and Dave
