Trip to St. Catharines and Niagara-on-the-Lake

The Canadian Side of the Niagara River provides a lot of beautiful views, spots and places. One of our days we spent driving to the Spanish Aero Car. We took a ride on a cable car leading us over the Whirlpool of Niagara River. Once you get caught of the dangerous current, you can’t escape anymore.

Our next stop was a little town called St. Catharines. It used to have a few streets full of life with shops, cafés, and restaurants. We visited that place 15 years ago and we were a little disappointed that we did not find anything like that anymore. But nevertheless we went to the harbor and enjoyed some beach moments at Lake Ontario. On clear days you can even see the skyline of Toronto. It was like diving in into a totally different world. Really great what they made.

Our last stop lead us to beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake. It is a little town with one special street. It is like a flash back in old times. Everything is clean and pretty and kept in the old colonial style with lots of flowers everywhere. This street is totally business with countless restaurants, boutiques and shops. When you make a left turn at the end of the street you are coming to Lake Ontario.

Next to the town there is Old Fort George. An old big military fort in great shape. We’ve been there two times already and decided to skip it that time. But it is really worth visiting. The also have demonstrations and kids can wear costumes for taking pictures.

But now enough said. Enjoy the photos:

In Love and Light!

I was smiling through looking at each photo and saying to myself “ah yes, I know this place” Imagine all the places that you have walked and I have too…just at different times…and who knows, maybe, just maybe I was one of the people you passed by while strolling along the waters edge. Many times I have hiked down into the gorge, (not recommended) and assisted in rescues…and sadly there have been times I worked in search and recovery. So long ago now. The power of the river as well as the whirlpool are unlike anything I know but what beauty is seen there. Thank you for directed me here and thank you for bringing to mind so many memories. Much love and peace, ~Matthew
