A long drive from Montreal to Toronto took us to the home of our good friends from Prague, the Meech-Tatics, and the wonderful extended Meech family. Alisha and Lucy were thrilled to catch up with Rade and made great friends with his cousins. Nan and I enjoyed resuming our walks with lots of gossip thrown in. We had a great couple of days with them and seeing their “other” (non-Prague) life and lovely family was a lot of fun. Steve also went to visit one of his partners from work who has a home in Toronto and was on holiday there at the time.
Sadly waving goodbye, we headed south-east to see Niagara Falls. The town was far less tacky than we remembered from our separate visits 20 plus years ago. But the Falls themselves were no less awesome. We decided to get a real soaking on the classic Maid of the Mist boat trip, taking us right up to the bottom of the falls.
