Niagara - Part 2

As promised, here are more photos from our adventures in Niagara Falls on Friday.

Here is Kate, travelling down one of the tunnels in her yellow poncho, surrounded by other plastic covered visitors.

We asked a fellow tourist to take a picture of us standing in front of one of the portals that is behind the giant fall of water. With the light behind us, our faces were completely in shadow in the photo but look at the cool colours I got when I tried to add enough light to show our faces. I really like this effect! (Addendum: I notice when I view this on a different computer that the cool colours in the photo don't show up at all in the blog posting, sorry about that!)

We found some great antique stores driving between NF and NOTL. This first one, Queen's Antiques, was especially good even though we left without actually buying anything. Here's a picture of Kate checking out some of the items available.

This next antique store was set up inside a former church. We weren't sure they had enough signs out front letting people know what they were selling, what do you think?

Check out this beautiful stained glass window inside the church:

And here's a metal dental cabinet which left me sorely tempted:

All in all, it was a lovely day, full of amazing delights for all of our senses, topped off by a delightful dinner in Dundas with Debi, Dave and Aaron, to whom we owe many thanks for their hospitality.
