Niagara-on-the-Lake is a Canadian town located in Southern Ontario where the Niagara River meets Lake Ontario in the Niagara Region of the southern part of the province of Ontario. It is located across the Niagara River from Youngstown, New York, US. It is the only town in Canada that has a Lord Mayor.

Lots of places along the way to buy fresh locally grown fruit, as you can see by Sara’s experience with the peach, it is very tasty, juicy and wholesome, definitely get the thumbs up from us and the man was extremely pleasant to buy from. The original plan was to pick our own fruit but we were unlucky on this trip as it was too late in the day.

The crystal clear water was actually quite warm and very still and as the sun slowly set the water was very calming to be near.  After sunset, we took a very causal stroll around the many independent shops unfortunately, most of them were closed or closing as we got there but nonetheless was really interesting to see the variety that is present in such a small area.  If you are visiting Niagara Falls, I would strongly recommend a visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake, very beautiful, less hustle and bustle and a very romantic place to be!

    2. Hi Ruth,

      How are you? How is the family? Not sure if I should ask about how school is?

      We are all well and keeping quite busy between home schooling in the morning, going to the park, swimming, walking, going to the mall, and visiting family and being visited by family…

      It’s coming up to three months, can’t believe it! Weather has started changing and is getting a lot colder now…everyone is just anticipating the snow, we have had a light covering about two weeks ago but it’s just a matter of time before weather gets colder and the snow really does come…

      As you may have seen, I went on a solo road trip of western Canada and saw some totally amazing things, lots more to come as I am non where finishing with the blogs I need to post just from that trip alone!

      Anyway, I hope you are all well, miss you very much, speak soon, take care,
