Niagara Falls

Slowly I turn, step by step, inch by inch....

As it turns out, "Niagara Falls" is a good thing. The dogs have really settled into the travel routine.

Our first stop was the Johnson Estate Winery. Karen and I had both had their White Ipocras wine years ago, and had always hoped to get more. Karen was especially frustrated in her quest - when she was finally old enough to buy wine, she went to a wine store to ask for the Ipocras, and the clerk was convinced she wanted Boone's. We were really excited when she realized we'd be driving right past the winery - and it turns out the Ipocras is almost as cheap as Boone's! We bought 13 bottles of assorted wine.

And the best part? Johnson Estate Winery is dog friendly! This made it much easier for me to choose my 7 bottles, so it's probably a good business decision.

Well-stocked, we continued on to the Niagara Falls State Park. The dogs headed down to Terrapin Point to view the falls - the Horseshoe Falls, specifically.

Here's a more scenic look at the falls....

And my Fascine Braid Sock was brave enough to take a closer look.

Unfortunately, the dogs couldn't go on the boat ride or the Cave of the Winds tour. But they were an attraction in their own right, and got lots of attention. We walked around to take in a few more attractions - the walking trails, the footbridges, the Hard Rock Cafe, and this statue of Nikola Tesla. He needs a blue sock, don't you think?

Now we're checked into the Delta Armouries hotel in London. It's a lovely place, with an incredibly friendly staff. Max seems to be happy here.
