Back From the Brink

We took our vacation early this year.

I am happy to report that none of us went over Niagra Falls.
(These are the Canadian Falls, also known as the Horseshoe Falls.)

We enjoyed our week in Ontario. Our neighbors to the north are wonderful people who provide terrific hospitality! (Despite every Canadian's reaction to hearing we had chosen St. Thomas as our destination being, "Why'd ya' pick St. Thomas?" accompanied by quizzical looks.)

We visited 4 of the 5 Great Lakes on this trip. (Now I can say I've seen...and had my feet in...all of the Great Lakes!)

I did some letterboxing and geocaching. (You should see my caching Souvenirs page!)

Enjoyed the best fish & chips of my entire life at Chaucer's Pub in London.
Had bangers & mash at The Waltzing Weasel Pub (also in London).
Visited an the Old St. Thomas Anglican Church built between 1882 and 1824 which bears the seal of Queen Victoria.

More pictures to come in the days ahead.

Cool! I've only dipped my feet in one of them and it was VERY cold!
