Ours to Discover

Post delayed due to a very slow Internet connection.

The motto on the Ontario license plate is “Yours to Discover”. We have had a great time discovering some of Ontario's treasures.

Today, Monday, the morning greeted us with 38 degrees brrr and some sun. We headed to Kakabeka Falls which is west of Thunder Bay. What a gorgeous sight! These falls have been called the "Niagara of the North".

From the parking lot, the falls were a short walk on wooden walkways and down steps. We also walked across the bridge and walked along the other side of the river.

Enjoy the photos.

After we left Kakabeka, the GPS said to turn on 25th Sdrd. We had some ideas but found out when we turned that it was 25th Sideroad!

We arrived at Fort William Historical Park about 12:30 PM. 

It was time to eat so we headed to the Cantine Restaurant within the Fort and enjoyed a delicious Beef Stew. I didn’t take a picture of the piece of carrot cake that we shared.

We joined a tour group and had an entertaining guide. Here are a few photos from inside the fort.

We did have one 'sad' experience today – we had to fill the Jeep with gasoline. It has a small tank and cost almost $60! Gas is about $1.21/liter – very expensive! A liter is slightly more than a quart.

Tomorrow we will head south to the States. 


  1. I can totally see the "Niagara" resemblance...those falls are gorgeous!!! I/we always go in search of those forts (often found on side roads that I really prefer! Finding them along a highway somehow ruins the ambiance with the traffic noises, etc.). The cost of Canadian fuel is ginormous!!!! The only downside to such a trek. Thnx for sharing...............

    1. We've never seen Niagara Falls but we saw the Niagara Falls of the West a few years ago. Maybe it's time to go see the real thing! The exchange rate was 21% when we bought gas meaning in US dollars, we only paid 79% of the price - that helps but it's still pricey. ~Jeanne

  2. Beautiful photos! It's looks like a place I need to visit. After I hit my 49th state in a couple of weeks, I'm going to get back to the Canadian Provinces.

  3. Be glad you weren't in a RV. The Jeep was bad enough.
