it's been a long time coming....

Yes, I know no one reads this blog anymore, but I finally downloaded my vacation pictures and thought it would be nice to post a few.

First here is the Alexandre Logan, the B&B we stayed at in Montreal (the bedroom you see on the webpage was the room we stayed in.) I can't say enough about this Inn - it was lovely, the innkeeper, Alain, was charming, the other guests were very nice and quiet - it felt like we were the only people there. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone heading to Montreal!

A few things I picked up while sightseeing - lovely shop called Mouline, and in an amazing fabric shop I found these:

From there is was off to Toronto:

The glass floor in the CN Tower, walking across it was easy, looking down made me dizzy - very dizzy

I wanted to stop at Lettuce, but we just couldn't find parking and David was starting to stress, so I took him here instead:

I hadn't been there since the early 80's and it changed a lot - especially:

That was not there the last time I visited!

Next stop: Niagra Falls

The American Falls

The Canadian Falls

By the time we got there the weather had changed for the worse - it was raining and COLD!! So we didn't take any boat trips or go behind the Falls. I think we will go back with the boys in warmer weather and do all that.

Found The Knitting Habit in town and brought home these:

After that is was just a long long drive home.

Thanks for that shot from the Hockey Hall of Fame. I'll have to make the trip just for that!

Hey, what am I? Chopped liver? Any time you post, I read, my kitting friend! You travels look great. I want to get to Montreal myself - thanks for the lodging recommendation. Hope to see you soon.

I'd love to see Niagra Falls!
And also I really want to visit Montreal and Toronto.

Toronto especially because they've got a copy cat Space Needle and I just want to make sure the Space Needle is better (even if the CN Tower is taller! The Space Needle is prettier, better, and 100% etc.)

Ok.../rampant Seattilite prejudice/homesickness/nostalgia.

I think London should build a similar edifice so I won't feel so lonely!

Thanks for sharing your vacation! I would love to go to Niagra one of these days! I'm glad you found some yarn buys too. That angora is so pretty! :)
