Niagara Falls, Ontario

The roar of the Falls is calling me home...
as many of you know this is 
where i am from.
I have not been home in over three years...

I'm homesick
and have decided it is time to go home...
Our son is there right now
spending the summer with my family.
He's loving it!
Yes, i know it's been a hot as hell summer there
but he is not complaining...at all!
He said he is tired of rain and cooler summers here...
me too.
No offence to my friend's of Vancouver Island.

I miss my family...girlfriends
the small town's of Ontario
the Italian bakery's...and delicious pizza that can only 
be found on the border cities of
Buffalo/Fort Erie and Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls, ON
miss the energy of the people
and the white
sandy beaches on the shores of Fort Erie...

These photos where taken by my girlfriend Cyndie
who is a Parks police officer...she took these photos
of them setting up the rope for the tight rope walker..
I would love to have been there for that!

So this is my little break until i 

Hope you are all enjoying your summer...

  1. Have a great trip, Pamela, and bring back some of that summer heat. It's another grey, cloudy, cool day out here.

  2. Pamela, how wonderful that you will be able to come home and spend some time with family. Yes it has been extremely hot and dry. I too am not complaining as Summer here is usually short and fast. Have a wonderful vacation.

  3. Have a lovely trip, Ontario looks like a beautiful place! Sharon :)

  4. Beautiful pictures of Niagara Falls! I watched Nik Wallenda walk across on the tightrope and it was amazing. I hope you have a wonderful visit to your home town. Enjoy! Blessings, Pamela

  5. I'm so excited for you! Have fun and take lots and lots of photos.

  6. Oh Pamela, I am so happy for you that you get to go home for a while. Enjoy yourself, dear girl, you deserve a hot summer with no rain. Three years of rain and cool weather is more than enough.
    Hugs Cindy

  7. Hi Pamela,

  8. Awwwww, you make it sound so wonderful... i can almost feel it in my gut for you... Enjoy, and soak up every minute of your visit!


  9. Enjoy your time back home dear.
    I know the power of falling water - I was just at Victoria Falls!!!!
    Hugs - Mary

  10. See- At some point in time we were almost neighbors. I grew up just across the border from Binghamton, NY and have been to the Falls many, many times- Enjoy your visit, sweet girl- xo Diana

  11. Lovely photos Pamela! I know how much you miss it there. I hope you have a wonderful time and I look forward to your photos and stories of your visit when you return!

  12. Hmm Niagara... what a pretty place! :) I love the falls, and all te little places there. :)


  13. Beautiful Niagra Falls. Have a wonderful trip home dear one.
    Bonnes vacances,

  14. Have a great time! I'd love to see Niagara Falls in the spring/summer months! I was fortunate enough to visit in February 2011 when my daughter was living in Toronto.


  15. How wonderful to take a trip back home. Wishing you safe travels and many happy days!
    See you when you return - we look forward to photos!!

  16. Pamela, no wonder you miss your home town !!! wow. Hug your family when you get home. I wish you a fun time. Smiles, Susie

  17. I hope that you get home for a visit ( and that the heat has broken ). There's nothing like childhood friends and family - they can fill you right up with love and it only takes a smile and a hug.

  18. As an transplanted Ontario girl I know how you feel. I get back to my old area a couple of times a year and am lucky to have friends and family that make it to our home for visits. I havent been to the Falls for years but made many trips when I was younger as I didnt live all that far away. I can still hear the roar of the water in my mind. Ahhh home. No place like it.

  19. There is no place like home. I was raised in Indiana and I always say, that you can take the girl out of Indiana but you can not take Indiana out of the girl. I found your lovely blog through mutual followers, and I am so glad that I did.

    I am your newest follower. I would be delighted if you would visit and follow me back. Have a marvelous day, Connie :)

  20. I miss Niagara falls too. Years ago I went with kids to Toronta and spent a day over there. Touring on the "Maiden of the Mist" was unforgetable.

  21. Hi Pamela, I haven't commented for a while. Seems that homesickness is something you never get over, home is always home, no matter how long you are gone. Have a wonderful visit, make some new memories that will keep till your next visit! Love, Penny

  22. Oh how great for you to go back home!
    I was there too this summer with my son and loved it! Your friend captured such beautiful shots!
    This place is special, and my husband and I honey-mooned there too :)
