Hi Alf
All signed up. Turn the corner wide, we will be in 41 for a quick getaway.
Arriving on Thursday, hitting the road with a full tank after Betty's. If you have never been to Niagara on the Lake, best downtown landscaping I have ever seen anywhere. And nice people.

Thanks Alf, I needed to see some greenery to start the day, we're pretty brown here yet. Let me know your itinerary going to Osoyoos when you get it mapped out. We've been working on ours with the help of the mountain directory West for Rvs motor home and cluck drivers. You know that if we're still here when you come through you're welcome to bivouac here at the estate. Well, even if we're not here, I can have my Bro take care of you. Have a great day, my daughter is coming up so I gotta help clean the barn.

The combination of respect and preservation of old brick structures with the micro climate that allows the lush growth of vegetation in the Niagara Falls area makes this a truly beautiful area. The wine is excellent too. I love the respect people show for old trees and old buildings and it's certainly evident in Niagara on thr Lake. I became acquainted with the general superintendent of the Niagara Falls parkways years ago. He was a superb horticulturist. Just like a lot of beautiful areas. In Canada and the U.S.A, you owe it to yourself to put them on your bucket list.

Those are definitely inviting photos, Alf. I will have to consider that rally for 2017, or beyond.

Hi: gabeck... That pic is the front of The Prince of Wales Hotel. It takes up most of the block it's on. The gardens are beautiful too.

My friends name was George Dalby. You'll have to ask her about him. He would do a nice Hort program on opening night of the Great Lakes Park Training Institute for many years.

Hi: All... Just a bump for "The Niagara Wine Escape" rally. Here's a link Tourism Niagara Official Website - Niagara Region and Niagara Falls Ontario Canada Information to go with your morning coffee.
I sure hope all of our attendee's who wanted to order an Escape trailer got in the que on Apr. 1st.
See you in September... hmm sounds familiar? Alf

Only if the stars line up just right will determine if we can make it. I did order 5 matching wheels this time so if I get another flat at least I won't stick out like a sore thumb.

Wine Escape

I don't know about the stars lining up but I do know that everyone who attends has a great time and is made to feel very welcome. The campfires, the potluck and the beauty of the region are wonderful. The brunch at Betty's is where we go celestial because it's out of this world.
