Early post since I’ll be away from the Interwebs for the next week starting Saturday so rather than deprive you readers of the weekly batch of photos how about an early post.
Week 27 I took a drive, after spending Canada Day with my lovely and talented friend Sarah at the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture (featured back in week 24). I started the trip after a wonderful lunch in downtown Niagara Falls (Not the tourist trap of Cliffton Hill) at the Falls, I wanted to get a shot of falls but there were so many people and I wasn’t going to fight my way through the crowds or pay 20 bucks for parking…
So I settled for a shot of the crowds instead, from the safety of my car.
The Parks commission was smart and installed lots of places along the way to stop and look out at the Niagara River.
Just past the Sir Adam Beck power station is the Floral Clock, it’s a clock, but the face is made up of flowers and is maintained by the later year students at the School of Horticulture.
Moving along we get to the Village of Queenston, more specifically Queenston Heights, the site of a major battle during the War of 1812, and now home of a monument to Sir Issac Brock who led the campaign to repel an American invasion of Upper Canada.
The Parkway makes for a wonderful scenic drive during the summer and fall, and probably in the winter also, I just haven’t done it in the winter yet.
One of many Wineries located along the Parkway. The cyclists gave me a weird look as I stopped to grab a shot, and then wave at them.
And here we are at the end of the journey, downtown Historic Niagara-On-The-Lake…
