Day 57: A Respite to Niagara on The Lake

By on Tue, Jul 9, 2013 at 9:20 AM

We set off this AM in the Starfish (the littler tow car we brought along), mainly to have the dawgs see Niagara Falls, given the nod by Winston Churchill as one of the most beautiful sights in the world. It was a muggy day for a trek, but pretty once we got off the turnpikes and into quaint Niagara on the Lake. Linda Radcliff had set up accommodations or us with an old Balmoral school friend Lil. This was the boarding school Gin went to so we qualified for the stay. We arrived at Lil and Herb's summer home where the boys got set up in the main house and Gin and I in the guest cottage. The A/C was a relief at the cottage but soon we were off to see the world famous waterfall.

After walking to the falls we split up and Gin and I had a nice lunch, while the dawgs headed for the go cart track. A good day was had by all and after a pre dinner nap, we were entertained over a home cooked dinner by Lil and good humoured quips from Herb. Suddenly all the driving and humidity and indulgence caught up with us and crawling between the sheets in that cool guesthouse was all we could think about.
