Who can forget this catchy (irritating after the 2nd or 3rd time hearing it!!) C'mon...sing along!
"Everyone loves a holiday,
watching the whales how they swim and play,
they jump in the air splash waves in your hair,
everyone loves Marineland,
Niagara Falls Ontario,
is always the fun place to go,
see friends you miss a great big kiss,
everyone loves Marineland!"
After a fun-filled (exhausting) day at Marineland and seeing the sights we'd spend the night in a motel in Niagara Falls and then head to Niagara-on-the-Lake the next day. When she was little Kazi would swim in the huge fountain and because she was a highland dancer she loved visiting the Scottish and British stores but our most favorite store of all (sadly not there any longer) was the candy store that had every kind of candy made since the beginning of time! So good!
Here are a few pictures of my adventure there with Michael:
|It was cool and cloudy Friday - not much difference in colour between the sky and the water which is Lake Ontario.|
|Saturday the weather improved and eventually we were able to shed our sweaters and scarf. I'm going on record that the sun DID COME OUT!!|
Just finished tasting some ice wine - VERY sweet! (Too sweet!)
|No post of mine is complete without a picture of two of flowers and these poppies were just screaming out to be immortalized! I couldn't get|
too good of a shot as they were on the other side of a fence but
the colour is just amazing.
|This is the theatre where we saw "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" - some of you may remember the movie starring Elizabeth Tayler and Paul Newman which was based on the play by Tennessee Williams. We enjoyed it immensely!|
|New friends met at the B and B - Beth and Marco|
|Hello to my American friends! United States is on the other|
side of the Niagara River!
A very hazy day!
|We just happened to come across a group of little ones waiting to go|
into a church for a First Communion? (I'm guessing)
They were so precious I had to take a few photos!
|And finally, just one of hundreds of vineyards surrounding Niagara-on-the-Lake. This area is Canada's answer to Napa Valley!|
I WILL CATCH UP!!
P.S. - notice how I'm not all sarcastic and flippant in today's post? A little mini-holiday can do one a world of good. Any bets on how long my calm, cool and collected mood will last??
