Tourist in Niagara

Husband and I have a friend from home who now lives in Texas, but managed to find his way to Niagara for a visit (that's the short version) this weekend we did the tourist thing....

We began with some sight seeing over looking the Niagara River.

Followed by a trip to the top of Niagara Falls

It was such a beautiful day, we had to go for a ride!

Here we are on the Maid of the Mist

Extreme close up of me in front of the American Falls.

Then came Clifton Hill.

That was yesterday. Today we decided began with a trip to White Meadows Farm where we bought some maple syrup, maple candies, and...

Maple Popcorn

Next we headed to Picards!

What do you get when you deep fry a peanut in a potato chip batter? CHIPNUTS! We wandered the store sampling the different flavours before selecting salt and vinegar flavour.

Then we went to Lock 3 Museum and watched a ship pass through the Welland Canal.

We headed to a road side vendor to purchase some local strawberries.

6 pints to be exact! (Anyone have any good strawberry recipes?)

Finally, we headed home and I made a tasty strawberry spinach salad before Jason left. Overall it was a very productive weekend.

I love visitors, but my stomach is glad we don't get too many! I am soooo full.


  1. What a wonderful trip! Thanks for taking us along!

  2. Had to be cooler for him there, versus Texas!
