After our spectacular trip to Niagara Falls,
we continued along the Niagara Parkway to Fort George.
Given that we are celebrating Canada's 150th birthday, we felt a trip back in time was a fitting tribute to share
with Christine & David, our UK friends!
The fortification served as the headquarters for the Centre Division of the British Army during the War of 1812. None of the original buildings stand today, except for the Magazine.

Life for the soldiers would have been quite hard,
but the officers had it a little better.
Even their meals looked tasty
The enlisted men would gather in the mess hall.....
....and were expected to follow the rules!
The most important building was the 'Magazine',
where all the gun powder was kept!
Time to head into town for a bite of lunch!
We found this charming family run 'diner',
which provides good ol'fashioned food.
I had my fav....a reuben sandwich!
What a wonderful day.....
Off to Toronto next!
