This week, I am taking a break from recipes and nutrition tips to tell you about our day trip to Niagara Falls. I thought you might want to know that I am not always stuck in the kitchen or sit in front of my computer. Sometimes, I also venture out into the world to take pictures and simply enjoy life.
We live a short drive away from Niagara Falls and really appreciate the fact that we can just hop into the car and be there in just over an hour.
It’s an amazing place and thousands of tourists from all over the world come to see it.
Here is a small preview for you, just in case you haven’t been there before…
Niagara region is famous for its wineries. We always stop by at our favorite winery to taste some wine and buy a few bottles.
A few more minutes of driving and we are there!
These are the American Falls (notice the huge chunks of ice to the left and in the middle):
And these are the Canadian Falls:
The bridge to the USA:
And the ever-present rainbow:
When you are standing so close to the falls, you can feel the power of the water:
Spring has finally made it to our corner of the world and we were happy to see flowers:
And some more flowers:
The gift shop is always fun:
Bottles of maple syrup come in all shapes and sizes:
And the moose (don’t worry it’s fake, I checked):
It was a fun day and we left Niagara Falls dreaming of a sunny vacation:
