Traveling Tuesday

Hey Everyone!
Wow, it's Tuesday already!  Well, I promised to show you pix from the trip that my peeps went on while we were all enjoying the big Luau!   Here it is!   They went to Niagara Falls, NY to see the falls from the US side and then they went to historical Fort Niagara.  Again, they somehow managed to have fun without taking me along (sniffle), but I had important work to do here.  I guarded our territory while they went on vacation.  The pix they brought back seemed to show these are two neat places to go.  The falls sure were pretty.   Mom and Dad said that Fort Niagara is located where the Niagara River flows into Lake Ontario.  The fort was really important during the War of 1812 and it has been really well preserved and refurbished in the original style.  Here come the pix!

Niagara River just before it reaches the Falls.

Niagara Falls

The ever-present rainbow over the falls.
The shoreline of Lake Ontario

And here's where the second set of Saturday Steps came from:  Fort Niagara!

The main fort...built to sort of look like a big house...so it would not upset the local native indians.

The drawbridge mechanism...stone, wood and rope.

Guard walls

So, there you have it.  A quick look at the greater Niagara NY area.  I hope you enjoyed it.  To me, the best part was when my peeps got back home!  BOL

Grr and Woof,

Mom always wanted to go there when she was younger and living in Massachusetts. The falls are so beautiful, especially with the rainbow. And that fort is really cool - thanks for the history lesson.
