Another glorious day looking over the American & Canadian falls at Niagara but today we were heading out of town towards Toronto.
A 90 minute drive had us in the heart of Toronto & busy looking for a car park. A couple of driving errors had the passengers slightly concerned, with the biggest error making a left turn in to on-coming traffic! But a readjustment & we were back on the right side of the road.
Finally parked up not too far from the CN Tower & now time to explore, but not before breakfast/lunch. Again a disappointing meal.
Toronto has the feel of Chicago and was busy for a Sunday morning. It was reasonably clean but there appeared to have a number of homeless people sleeping/begging on the sidewalk.
It didn’t take long for Mrs C to find a shopping mall & had Elle, Julie & I following like lambs to the slaughter! Soon we were being led to the Apple store & had to go through a complicated & unnecessary queuing system just to buy the new Apple watch & iPhone. After what seemed like a lifetime of waiting we were escorted back in to the store to seal the deal. Just before payment the assistant asked who our data carrier was & as soon as they relaised it was a UK company they advised the watch would only work independently in Canada, US or Puerto Rico! If we needed it to work in the UK we’d have to buy it there! So Mrs C only bought the iPhone.
After a little bit more exploring we headed for the car & tried to park at the waterfront but all parking was to be paid for in cash which we didn’t have so we headed back to Niagara.
Tonight’s meal was the best meal so far in Niagara. Julie had roast chicken, mash & vegetables. Mrs C & Elle had mushroom linguini & I had a pork chop with mash. I had a barking squirrel beer & Julie had a Fanta.
Now back at the hotel, bags packed for the drive home to Chicago tomorrow. Mrs C playing wither her new iPhone, Elle & Julie working on Elle’s assignment & I’m typing my blog while watching the Patriots v the Lions.
