We spent our last couple of days at Sauble Beach enjoying the lake and the beach. We built some couple sandcastles, swam, and generally enjoyed ourselves. We also took June out into the lake in the small inflatable boat we have, which she seemed to quite enjoy as she rolled up and over the large waves!
On Saturday, we packed up and moved across Southern Ontario to Niagara Falls. It is a truly amazing thing to see – pictures just do not do it justice! The sheer volume of water coming down is unbelievable. Stacy has some family in Toronto, and they came down to spend the day with us on Sunday which was really great! We have seen them so many times in Victoria, it was nice to be able to see them in their home province. They were excellent tour guides and hosts!
We’ve spent the last few days exploring around Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-lake, a small town north of Niagara Falls on the south shore of Lake Ontario that is surrounded by wine country. It’s beautiful!
Today we enjoyed the Clifton Hill area of Niagara Falls – a very touristy amusement park type area just a short walk from the falls. We rode the sky wheel, and we all got to go on the go-karts – even June, though that didn’t work out super well in the end…. We even enjoyed our first sit-down restaurant meal out as a family for as long as we can remember!
Unfortunately, June’s GI issues are back in force and have continued to give her trouble with a lot of pain and discomfort, and up repeatedly through the night for a number of nights in a row now. Fingers crossed this Candida treatment we are working through will continue being effective and eventually bring her some of the healing and relief that we hope it will.
Tomorrow we will celebrate Oliver’s 11th birthday together! It is supposed to be rainy and thunderstorms tomorrow – fingers crossed for a bit of sunshine thrown in there too!
