Hello from Canada - Part 1

Wow - what an amazing time we are having and only really into our 3rd full day. Got to Toronto and picked up the Pontiac Grand Prix hire car (Im sure I booked a Ford Focus!) - how do you get an automatic to go? Didnt realise you have to engage the break so sat there like a lemon until someone took pity on me!

Drove to Niagara, checked into fab B&B and wandered down to see the Falls illuminated - incredible. And by this time it was 4 am UK time. Slept like a log and ready for incredible first day - Maid o the Mist, Behind the falls, Skytower, then back to Toronto and fab dinner (hey - they have Tibetan restaurants!!). Saw Bill Oddie at the falls!!!
Yesterday - day2 - Clinton in town! CN Tower - glass [floor, etc - Wooooaaaaahhh! Then baseball game at the Skydome in the afternoon.

Dinner with Carla and Dan in the evening. Now at Airpoty ready to go to Calgary - pick up Motorhome this arvo. Bloody incredible! Not a minute to sit back and take it all in. On to the rockies now!
