06-29-18 Niagara Falls and Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens

We left the USofA and went across the Rainbow Bridge to Canada.  Checked into our hotel and drove down to the park and walked along taking some pictures of both the American and Horseshoe Falls.

Another selfie! American Falls behind us.
Really there are not enough words – I asked if Janeen wanted to do the boat thing but she passed.
Beautiful day to be here.

There really aren’t enough words, good thing the photos are available.

The next day we came back, via the WEGO bus and went directly to Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens so Janeen could get a garden fix.

One of the largest Herb Gardens in North America!

It was a beautiful day to wander around, smell the roses, see the various gardens and enjoy.

We could have taken a carriage ride around the Gardens.

The color of the leaves on this tree were amazing!

After that we went back to the area where the Falls are located and walked around the Queen’s Rose Garden.  Seems the roses at Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens have become deer food so there aren’t a lot of them left.  Lost of them at the Queen’s Rose Garden.

Had a delightful lunch along with a full pitcher of Molson’s beer.  Not a bad view of the Falls from our table.

We had a delightful lunch and a picture of Molson beer overlooking the Horseshoe Falls – at Queen Victoria Restaurant.

The next day we left and headed to Ottawa for the evening.  300 plus miles along the Trans Canada Highway.  Lots of lakes and trees but not much else.
