Canada Log Day 3

Today is our third day living with the Canadiens, they are a happy people and have accepted us as one of them. After spending the morning going to church we had some lunch then made plans for the week. One of the plans was to go to Niagra Falls.

Our main reason for going was to watch a tightrope walker go between two building 60 stories up. It was neat to see. He calls himself Price of the Air. (click link). Samuel wanted him to fall, not to die or anything, to somehow save himself. He just thought is sounded pretty cool. Bennett said he wasn't going to fall because nothing that cool ever happens when he's around.

Look close and you can see the wire coming off the top of this tower. Needless to say, he didn't fall.

The big feature is a more than daily visit to Tim Hortons, a Canadian born coffee and donut show that has almost a cult following here. I'm sipping a coffee right now as a write.

Until tomorrow.

Canada Log Day 1 and 2

We are having a nice trip. We arrived yesterday, Friday night, about midnight. I did most of the driving, Holly did about an hour of our 15hr 50min drive. I'm writing you from our room in the boys dorm here at Great Lakes Christian College. I'm using an iPad at the exact location below.

We don't have an Internet connection so I'm piggy backing on another guys cell phone wifi. Its sporadic. Anyway, we have been enjoying a nice visit with Holly's sisters, Laurie and Wendy and their families.

The drive was not bad, really, Lauren and Luke (Wendy's kids) wanted to stop at each state and take a picture, we we're only able to do Indiana and Michigan. The others were dangerous, no place to pull off for the photo op.

We are heading to an acap church of Christ in the morning, a great group of people.
