Saturday I traveled to Welland Ontario for a nice leisurely drive. It takes a little over an hour to get there, but it’s been eons since I had visited the city known for the ginormous boat locks of Welland Canal. It was hot and humid, but with the truck a/c blowing and music pumping the drive was a good one.
I have to admit once you get into the Niagara on the Lake the scenery is really nice. Traffic wasn’t too bad either so it really was a relaxing drive.
Once I had toured Welland, it was onto Niagara Falls and battling mega traffic. Once I got off Lundy’s Lane (the main tourist street) I was fine. It was then a long but easy drive towards the Butterfly Conservatory, then onto The Floral Clock and The Brock Monument Statue.
I sat in the park for a bit and then made my way to the boat launch on the Niagara River. There I sat until sunset just relaxing and watching the water. The peace and serenity was something I really needed to clear my mind.
