    This is place is so mind blowing it is hard to describe. We had a beautiful day to see them and the town. The morning started at 9.30 with tour pick up. Our first stop was the ice wine winery. This winery was the first to harvest and produce ice wine. The grapes are left in the vines until it gets to 10 degrees overnight then harvested in ice snow weather. We then headed out to Niagara Park. This iconic village is beautifully set up for the tourists. Buses park outside if the shop area and you either walk the five minutes in or catch the shuttle. Sue was able to do her horse and carriage rides and was over the moon.

    I did a quick recon then walked back to see if I could get down to the river. From the Canada side you look across to USA. This will be as close as I will get. The driver kindly said he would stop along the way so I got a good view which was done.

    Once at the falls we headed into lunch at the Sheraton. Wow, the views from the balcony were outstanding. Once lunch was over we headed down to the boat to go right up to the falls. The wind swirls around slashing the mist foment the falls like a heavy rain storm. Such fun!

    Lumberjack show

    August 24, 2016 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    This 40 minute show depicts the work of the lumberjack in past times in an entertaining and interactive way. After show I wandered over to see the two grizzly bears, Coho And Grinder. Unfortunately they had decided to stay in the shade and rest. Wise bears. The views of the city from Grouse Mountaon is panaramic.Read more

    Capalano Salmon Hatchery

    August 24, 2016 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    This hatcery has been set up by the government to try and preseve numbers of salmon heading up river for spawning. On the Fraser River the numbers are down to 1 million from over 10 only a few decades ago. The area is lovely here. Part of the problem was the building of a dam in the river which meant salmon could not get up stream to the spawning grounds.Read more

    Capilano Bridge

    August 24, 2016 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Was a bit disappointed in that felt the Sea to Sky bridge was more scary. The view from the bridge to the river below is well worth it though. You can walk the tree tops, tracks around the river edge or cliff side on the start side of the river . All in all interesting but very busy with people.Read more
