Road Show, Hamilton, last spread

Well, we're home! Lots to catch up on. This will be our last spread on Hamilton. But I may include some single Hamilton shots in upcoming posts.

A few highlights from Hamilton:

1)Sherman Falls: Because the Niagara escarpment runs through Hamilton, there are many waterfalls, all of them worth a visit.

2)Old Mill Falls--the old Mill restaurant is just beside this falls (there are two falls here, but one is walled up. The restaurant looks good, btu we didn't get to eat there.

3)The Egg and I; our favorite spot for breakfast. Baranga's on the Beach, our favorite dinner spot, was sadly closed.

4)At The Royal Botanical Gardens--another favorite spot.

I hope I get out for a few shots of Detrot, now that I'm home--but I'm so busy catching UP!

As always, a series of photos that are truly a pleasure to look at. I love those rocky falls and the last flora photo is stunning!

Maybe you ought not to worry about anything...just catch up on your rest!

Hi Mary, I am here from Rose's blog. She recommended yours --because my hubby and I collect waterfalls. And WOW--what gorgeous waterfalls in Hamilton. We've been to Niagara--but that's as far as we've been in Canada. Looks like we'll have to plan a trip there!!!!

We are retired and love to travel and hike. We've seen over 350 different waterfalls now.

Thanks for allowing me to stop by and look.

Hi Betsy!

If you like waterfalls, you'll love Hamilton--they have the escarpment and MANY waterfalls and parks--well worth a visit.

If you're in Michigan, you may enjoy Tahquamenon Falls, the second largest falls east of the Mississippi.
