Hi Friends and Family,
Carll and I both arrived safely in Toronton although Carl was a day late and a Sterling short. Air Canada was acting up and blocked pets on the flight. As most of you know, it's always better to take Westjet unless your flight is free on points. :)
Beth picked me up from the airport and we headed down to Niagara Falls. As it's not the season, a lot of the tourist options were shut down like the Maid of the Mist and the tunnels behind the falls. Beth had two main priorities - breakfast and the Hershey Store. I made a new friend outside the store (see photo). We took a bunch of photos at the falls highlighting the great time Beth and I had and how happy she was to be there. I'm so glad she recommended it to me.
We headed back to Beth's new house. A work in progress. Richie finally woke up and I met some of his and Beth's family. We stopped by the mall and had dinner out at a fancy Burger bar. The next day Carl showed up and after we ran some errands and met
his family and nephew Joshua, we went down to Younge St, Queen St, College St. and had lunch at Rovers, an irish bar. We had a dinner planned for 6pm at the Rebel House where we got to see Lisa and Jeff and their new addition Aiden. It was great to catch up with them and Beth and Richie came too. Everyone went home early for work the next day while Carl and I went bar hopping. The Quail and Firkin, Horse's Ass (where I got into a fight with an aging goth chick), Velvet Underground, Hideout and a taxi back.
All's going well and we're looking forward to less snow and more sun in the Cayman Islands.
