I think it would be prudent to write about Canada Part I last weekend before leaving for Canada Part II this weekend.
I went to Canada with Cecille, who was going because she wanted to go on a Mormon excursion. The actual Mormon part of the trip was meant to be quite minimal (although of course Cecille added extra Mormon activities at the last minute), and I hadn’t been to a place just to go to a new place in a while. Plus, French!
Niagara Falls was awesome. We saw both the Canada side, which was like a little Las Vegas, and the New York side. The boat tour was really fun (Hornblowers on the Canada side!), and we were lucky that it wasn’t too cold even though it’s November. Though the second day was quite windy on the New York side, it was lovely to walk around.
I enjoyed the second surprise Mormon excursion because we got to walk through the pretty woods and climb a big hill.
In Montreal we went to St. Joseph’s Oratory, the basilica, and the Mormon temple.
