Following along the Saint Lawrence river we crossed the border of another province without even noticing it. We’re already in Ontario. After experiencing a overcrowded Montreal, we concluded that big cities were not for us. So we decided to bypass Ottawa, the capital, and head to Niagara Falls. But before we got there a lot would happen.
A place along the way to the Falls that we just could not miss was the Thousand Islands National Park. The border between Canada and the USA runs along the river Saint Lawrence. The views are amazing. We drove smoothly along the local roads and just enjoyed the magnificent surroundings.
Since we were driving along the border, it was natural that the place would be full of forts and fortresses on each side. We decided to visit some of them. The choice came upon Fort Henry in Kingstone. We were lucky as we arrived just in time for the parade and artillery show.
Last photo is a little bit out of focus because the photographer trembled from head to toe with the blast of the cannon 🙂
We also visited Fort George, but that’s for a future post.
Just to finish this post we present some photos from Toronto by night. We decided to cross this city at midnight. All people we met warned us about the terrible traffic of Toronto. The city, with all of its lights, was nice to see. Unfortunately, the photos do not reflect it. After a few kilometres (unfortunately, after the nice views) we stood in a traffic jam on a four-lane highway in the middle of the night for about two and a half hours.
