After the Niagara Wine escape we drove through New York State to avoid another drive through Toronto… driving through Montreal was pretty easy , very good signage . Quebec City signage was not as good , there is construction everywhere traffic was …um ??… it doesn't move !!!
Ogdensburg NewYork State…
Driving through Montreal…..

We parked at the KOA in Levis , on the south/east side of the St.Lawrence . Not a very quiet rv park ( traffic noise is always there ) , but a very convenient location , and the facilities are very good . They do offer a lot of info on tours . However , we would highly recommend driving to the Levis ferry terminal - park ( possibly $5. for the day - there are several options ) walk onto the ferry and walk off at the bottom of Old Town Quebec . I think it was about $3.50 each . Beautiful views from the ferry , all parts of Old Town are easily accessible …. it's about 15-20 minutes .

Back in July, 1969 my wife and I... one year married, moved from Edmonton to Toronto. Looking at all these pictures of Niagara, reminded me of our time there. Every time we had visitors from Western Canada and we would ask them what they would like to see... without an exception... it was the "Falls". I became a tour guide, including taking visitors through the tunnel under the Falls.

However, what I remember best was this chance in a life time to witness the results of mankind versus nature...

Hi: Stargeezer... I prefer a dry Niagara from Reif Estate Winery. Their 2012 Pinot Grigio is exceptional with Turkey. Alf
