What happens in Batavia stays in Batavia

I went on a golf weekend with 14 women (one was my boss !!!) in Batavia NY.  We golfed at Terry Hills golf course and had a terrific time.  After breakfast on the way to the course we were hit with a mammoth rain storm.  There was so much electricity in the air that everyone's hair was standing on end.  The bus ride from the casino to the hotel to the casino to the hotel was definitely the hilight!

Time to get out of Dodge!

Canada Day in Ottawa

Spent the Canada Day weekend with my son and husband.  We cycled all over and enjoyed all the festivities in the Byward Market and Parliament Hill area.  The hilight was when we were on the bridge to Hull and the Snowbirds flew overhead.  On the way home we stopped at Pidgeon lake to visit baby Hunter.

Wallenda on a wire

I rode my bicycle down to Niagara Falls to see the wire that Nik Wallenda is going to walk on tomorrow night.  There were not a lot of people there yet so I could wander around and take pictures of everything up close.  He will be crossing from Niagara Falls, NY to Niagara Falls, Canada on June 15 at 10:30 pm.  History will be made.  All the big network TV stations were there setting up their cameras.  There are concerns that the Falcons that are nesting in the rock wall may attack him on his walk so that is why he is crossing so late.  I would like to go down tomorrow night to experience it but I yet to figure out how the heck I will get there and back...
