Niagara On The Lake

Yesterday, M and I and two good friends drove 90 miles south to Niagara On The Lake for a relaxing day trip.

The weather was perfect: sunny, warm but not too hot. Although I did find myself popping in and out of the air-conditioned stores to keep cool.

Queen's Landing
Queen's Landing is an elegant hotel with a water view from the bar and patio. We chose to eat lunch in the bar near the window, to avoid pesky bees and intense sun.

From the bar and patio you can see the lake and sailboats.

Besides the Shaw Festival, Niagara On The Lake is best known for the outstanding flowers everywhere: beside the curb, on people's lawns, and hanging from lampposts.
