Niagara Falls!

Monday 21 November

Holy Guacamole!
Fifteen of us headed to Niagara Falls today on a chartered bus tour!  It was a lovely trip, and although the day was very cold, we had glorious sunshine.  We stopped at Niagara-on-the-Lake, a picturesque town with beautiful architecture and cute shops.  Unfortunately, we didn’t have time for it, but if I’m ever back this way, I’m going to afternoon tea at the gorgeous Prince of Wales Hotel!  Next, we headed to a nearby winery for a tasting – I would’ve preferred my tea, but I always love the experience of being in a country winery and walking through vineyards…  Ice wine is the specialty of this region – it’s a very sweet, grape-y dessert wine made from grapes that aren’t harvested until they have frozen on the vine.  Then, it was on to the Falls, which were incredible!  Their force is astounding, and I’m not sure how anyone would ever have the desire to go over in a barrel 😉  It was cold and wet, but worth it for the stunning views and rainbows!

And now it’s back to rehearsing…  Quick choreo review in the gym tonight, running over my scenes, and I’m ready for our week to start again tomorrow!
