So onto my very first trip to Canada! And believe it or not the first thing I did was book a tour to Niagara Falls - as close to the US Border you can get. To be honest I had only planned on buying some ice skates whilst in Toronto and decided on a whim to book a tour when I arrived at the hotel. After spending my first few hours in Canada getting my skates fitted, I got some much needed rest and headed out on a 1.5hr drive to the Falls with some of the other crew.


Whirlpool of Niagara Falls, though the trees are in the way somewhat.


So cold! Was about -5 degrees Centigrade at the time.


Shipwrecked boat stuck in the rapids. It's never gonna move.


Skyline view of the Fallsview area, which is very Vegas-like with high-rises and neon signs.


Marc helping out the tour guide with cleaning.


Budding photographer Ryan trying to get a good shot in.


View of the Horseshoe falls from the observation platform at Journey Behind The Falls


Icicles!


Bridal Veil Falls


Ryan, Audrey and Marc getting up to mischief.


During the summer you'd be all wet from the shower of the Horseshoe falls. Now all you see from the tunnels is ice, ice and more ice.


Obligatory tourist shot in front of the Horseshoe falls.


That big ice cake doesn't look particularly inviting


Big steam cloud in front of the Horseshoe falls, viewed from Table Rock.


Marc showing Audrey and I how snowballs are done


Niagara Falls looking quite pretty all iced up


The Living Water Wayside Chapel at Niagara-on-the-Lake, with seating for 6 people and parking for 4. Too cute!

The day was pretty full on - 1.5 hr drive to the falls from Toronto, then to the whirlpools, Journey Behind The Falls, to lunch, to Niagara-on-the-Lake, then to Lakeview winery to try Icewine, then the 1.5hr journey back to the hotel. I normally don't drink wine but the tasting convinced me to buy a bottle of Icewine which at $19.99 CAD is a bargain apparently(?).

Will post more photos from Toronto in a short while, have been a little distracted lately with the move and packing amongst other things. :-)
