Niagara-on-the-Lake Getaway

There are a plethora of activities to do in the Niagara region, especially when the weather is as beautiful as it was this May long weekend. We were graciously granted with sunny sky's for two beautiful days as we walked and galloped through Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Me riding Winston

Niagara Riding Stables offers 50 minute trail rides through the
beautiful Niagara Escarpment which skirts gorgeous vineyards.
The horses were mild mannered and the staff very friendly
toward first time riders like me!

The wonderful Harbour House Hotel.

Some lovely houses and their gardens!

We went on a wine tour @ the grand Peller Estates.
I'm not a wine drinker at all, but it was interesting to see the cellar and now I can say I've done a wine tasting...not all that exciting folks!

We had a steak dinner at Zee's on a heat warmed porch and a I had a manicure at the Shaw Spa! (thanks hunny!) Sadly on our way home, Mr. GPS took us back to the highway a different way then we came and therefore we missed the antique shops we had hoped to peek and poke around in. :( I guess it was someones way of saying you already spent enough money.
