Like many of you, our travel has been restricted by the global pandemic for the past couple of years. My favorite way to “armchair travel” is, of course, reading a great book! But recently, we decided to take a little road trip to one of our favorite places — Canada.
We drove from Traverse City, US to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. It’s a relatively short eight-hour drive almost straight east from here. This was our first international travel in way too long, and it was definitely worth it!
Here’s a photo of Niagara Falls taken from our hotel room. The Horseshoe Falls on the right are in Canada. The US Falls on the left are in New York. Breathtaking, aren’t they?
We had a chance to get very close to the falls on the Behind the Falls tour and also on the observation deck. Here’s me, dressed like a Minion, in our very fancy rain poncho provided by the tour people, standing near Horseshoe Falls:
After we’d walked off the soles of our shoes, we took a quick drive to the lovely Canadian town of Niagara on the Lake, which is located on Lake Ontario at the mouth of the Niagara River.
Canadians are amazing gardeners. Look at all the gorgeous flowers adorning this lovely eatery! The lunch was yummy, too!
If you’ve been stuck at home unable to travel, you can take a reading trip with Michael Flint from London, UK, to Texas, and on to snowy Canada, in my most recent new book, Blood Trails.
