July 4, 2009-Celibrating America's birthday in Canada we drove to Toronto, found a parking place near the CN tower and found out that there was a ninety minute wait to go to the top. Not worth it.  We walked to the water front and found a nice restaurant with outdoor dining overlooking Lake Ontario.  This was the first sunny warm day we have had in a week.  Toronto is a very nice city, clean and a charming mix of old and new.  We went to St. Lawrence Market in old town.  What a great place to buy produce, meat, cheese, bakery goods and mustard.

After a great time in Toronto we drove sixty miles south to Niagara Falls.  The Canadian side has the best views.  The city is one big roadside attraction.  I have not seen so many people since Mardi Gras in New Orleans.  It was an international crowd; we didn’t hear a lot of English.  The Falls are a natural spectacle surrounded by a carnival.  At night they had fireworks and a light show.  It was a fun 4th.  Niagara Falls should be experienced once in a life time.--Nels
