Around Niagara

During my recent trip to Niagara Falls we visited several attractions in the area. There is plenty to do besides enjoying The Falls.

We watched a glass blowing demonstration at Rossi Glass.
Rossi is famous for its cranberry glass.

The artist at work.

Beautiful color in the showroom.
A small dark green bowl came home with me.

The parking lot at the Whirlpool Rapids.
This automobile in the parking lot got more attention than the rapids.

The landscaping was beautiful all around the area.

We made a stop at Chocolate Fix for a demonstration in candy making with samples.

Now that is lots of chocolate!

The workers were fun.
They obviously enjoy their work.

This little machine reminded me of the I Love Lucy episode with Ethel and Lucy working in the candy factory.
I missed getting a photo with the candies on the belt.

Another worker hand dipping the product.

On site candy shop.

Most of their business is wholesale.
Other companies put their label on the candy made here.

Halloween candies
Queen Victoria Park - Floral Clock

Vineyards were plentiful in the area.
Wineries were everywhere.

We made a stop at the Welland Canal in St. Catharines.

There is a nice museum on site.

Great produce market with deli sandwiches and soup as well as handmade jellies and other items for sale.

Fall is a great time to visit.
Wonderful color everywhere and the summer crowds are gone.
We also spent the day in Toronto and went to Niagara-on-the-Lake another day.
I hope you will visit "Journey" for those future posts.
