Looking back at the bridge

Pretty horses

The part of Niagara I didn't like

Just to prove workers worldwide are the same! 3 watching 1 work!

A shipwreck by Lake Ontario.


Our bus driver. I am sure he is Eric the Chef's twin!

Random canoe in Toronto

I did figure that these strange shapes were to make snow fall off easier.

Yellow bus

Such HUGE corn (maize?) crops - but what looked like a baby tonka toy to harvest!

Why did I expect bigger signs?

Back in the US (Michigan)

The driver of the most expensive taxi ride I ever took!

I have 'known' Brenda for 15 years and at last we got to meet! Brenda left. Me right.

The woods above the lake shore

We saw very little wildlife so were getting a bit desperate when we saw this ....

I am not sure if this is the odd couple or a match made in heaven!


Inside our cottage.

The view from the cottage

WOW - names from folk lore and history!

The shore of Lake Superior

Where the log slides were

Autumn Glory

Robyn & I are sure this is a beaver dam in the pond

This I think I will get printed and framed

Looking down on the painted rocks

Yes I actually DID get to Hiawatha country!

Captain Delta

Old lighthouse on Grand Island (Lake Superior)

Painted Rocks - a very SMALL sample from the photos I took!

We took the sunset cruise . If the sun had shone these colours would have been even MORE glorious!

Just another glorious view

More wildlife

Pumpkin decorations were everywhere!

Americans are very keen on cute things like this
