Canada in the Fall

Oct 8 -

We’ve had almost no opportunity so far to access internet, but we are on the road and doing fine. No major glitches (of course there are always minor ones, but won’t mention those, hee hee). The Fall colors are coming on late this year. We are seeing some yellows, and just a bit of red here and there.

First night we stayed at a lovely camping spot in central Michigan. Gorgeous weather! On second day, we crossed the border into Canada – stopped to meet one of my MOMYS and her family. We just had time for a short visit – it would have been nice to spend a whole day with them. I’m afraid we kind of ‘whooshed’ in and ‘whooshed’ out. Our children (they have 5) all enjoyed playing together – I felt so bad pulling them away. Another time, Lord willing!

That night we found a campsite not too far from Niagara (Canadian side). We set up camp and played on the playground and had supper. Third day on the road we took in breathtaking views of the Niagara Falls. WOW definitely shows the awesome power of our Creator.

After a couple of hours and many photo opportunities, we headed up to tour the Historic Fort George. This is the fort across the river/border from the from Fort Niagara. It was very interesting, a highlight for everyone in the family. Our tour guide was dressed in period costume (1790), and gave us a good picture of what life for a soldier during the War of 1812 was like. We were able to tour the barracks, officers quarters, the 300 year old stone building specially built to house ammunition, even an underground tunnel that lead to an octagonal lookout tower. There was plenty more to see – you’ll have to wait to see our pictures!


  1. Those are gorgeous photographs. I'd love to travel across Canada sometime -- maybe someday. :)

  2. Thanks for commenting, Naomi - I highly recommend a trip across Canada - especially late Sept, early Oct. We made lots of good memories along the way!
