A quick trip to Canada

(e:Dianne) got her enhanced drivers license last week and wanted to visit her first foreign country: CANADA! She wanted to make it a romantic getaway and prevent me from working so she booked us a room (jacuzzi!) at a B&B in Niagara Falls, ON. We showed up at the B&B and there was no one there and it didn't look like anyone had been there for over 24 hours. Uh oh. She called and left a message. We made a quick stop to look at the falls (cold, windy, wet, we didn't stop long) then we went to the shiny tourist area to find some food. We checked every bar/grill and none had a decent beer selection so we went to one with a good pizza selection. The pizza was good - they were great about making a ridiculously custom pizza - half pepperoni, olives and mushrooms, half roasted red pepper, artichoke and zuccini. There was a nice 3/4" gutter between the two sets of toppings. Then we discussed what to do about the no b&B problem, and decided that camping at my house would be preferable to getting a room at the Sheraton or something (all of 24 miles from my house), as long as I kept my phone on airplane mode. We knew there was good beer in my fridge. Then we cruised the actual downtown part of NF looking for the brewpub I had heard of when I went on a photoshoot there (e:heidi,50473) - definitely wanna go there sometime. (e:Dianne) took pix of the falls, hope she'll post them.

I hadn't informed her what the boarder crossing would be like, what kind of questions to be prepared for, so she was really nervous and the Canadian guard was a little suspicious until she said it was her first time. Then on the way back, she was ready for the questions... and the convo went like this:

US Border Guard: What's your citizenship?
(e:Dianne): Buffalo
US Border Guard: uh... got a passport for that?

I was rolling.

This morning at Taza (I probably should get a coffee maker but I do enjoy going to Taza when she spends the night. She has her own punch card now.) She really liked the Nightmare before Christmas(?) mug she got.

OMG! Walgreens has real beer now!

Eternal flame

The Buffalo LGBTQ Women's meeting group had our annual end-of-summer potluck today out at Chestnut Ridge Park. Lesbian potlucks are awesome. (e:puddlediving) & I went for a little hike there last fall but didn't go to the flame but a small group of us went today. It was a really quick little hike, way too many people around. I'm sorry the pix are blurry. :-(

Strong Museum of Play in Rochester was lots of fun. I'd definitely go back and check out the butterfly conservatory and read more.

Outer Harbor

Balloons would have been much more fun to shoot, but a leaping (e:terry) is cool, too. Citybration's communication sucks.
