Donuts? Were Tim Horton's donuts involved? How long do they keep fresh? Will customs take them from you?

I want donuts!

Well, more to the point, I want you guys back home, ASAP.

No, TimHorton's donuts were not involved, but their apple, toffee and (pastry thingy) is simply brilliant!

I'll check with Paul and Jason to see if they'll consider shipping a selection of donuts down to us and we'll share with you.

Well, don't like spend money or anything, unless they're truly brilliant.

And not if the toffee thingie has nuts in it, of course.

methinks Monday, don't ask the time.

I know that Dave has a printout and I think I've stashed my copy somewhere safe (which means that I probably won't be able to find it when I need it...)

The last time I was to Niagara Falls I was a little tyke, think it was elementary school, so it was 1979 or before. I don't remember that we went to the Canadian side of the falls. I do remember seeing them from the NY side and I remember traveling to Canada during the trip to go to a museum, I think, but I don't remember the Horseshoe falls, they are massive and awesome.

tourist trapI think that US$6.00 for a small-ish slice of pizza and a small soda verifies the tourist trap status. The folks running the gift shops are quick to point out that the Canadian side of the falls is totally self sustaining financially, the Canadian Gov't provides them with no funding.

We shot about 130 shots while we were there. I'll be posting some more when I get the chance to post process the camera-raw files into .jpg's .
