Well it's been long enough, and I've had time to look through all my pictures and put away all of my luggage... so that means it's time to share summer vacation photos!

Retro outfit for sight-seeing at Niagara Falls

Just like last summer, Doug and I put in for time off work to drive to Wisconsin to visit my granddad and see part of my extended  family.  Sure, we could fly, but since the price is about the same it's awfully fun to take the drive.  We try to stop to sight-see some, and of course it's a lot easier to visit all the little antiques shops in the middle of nowhere in a car.

Retro outfit for sight-seeing at Niagara Falls

One of the highlights of our trip last summer was a late evening stop at Niagara Falls. This time, we decided to stop there on our way out instead so we could get a proper look at everything in the daylight.  Unfortunately, a lot of the viewing platforms for the American side of the falls were under construction, and the lines were long enough that we decided against trying to go on any of the guided tours.  Still, it was very nice to get out of the car and have a walk and a look around, and the falls are very impressive in any light.  Next time, I'll have to get my passport renewed and plan to have a look from the Canadian side!
