I arrived in Ontario at midday on the Sunday (the course started the next day) and took a quick trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake:
This lovely town (maybe, village) is only a short drive from the actual Falls, and is stunning. It reminded me of the English countryside - a mixture of the Lake District, Devon and a smattering of Kent and Berkshire!
Then on to the main event, Niagara Falls.
My photos really do not do it justice at all. The roar, speed and force of the water is really quite breathtaking. I didn't go behind the falls, or take a trip on the boat - it actually sails around the base of the fall, but nonetheless, I was glad that I took time out to visit. I went to the falls a few years ago but that was in March and the view is quite different - and it is much quieter. There are not so many tourists when there is snow on the ground!
Well, my next stop will be in my class. Here is where I spent the rest of the week:
I look forward to sharing more with you tomorrow!
