On the way back...

On the way back from Brampton on Sunday, there were big electronic display signs on the side of the highway warning of long delays at the border entering the US via 405, over the Queenston Lewiston Bridge, and suggesting alternate routes via the 420 (Rainbow Bridge at Niagara Falls) or Fort Erie and the Peace Bridge. So, I passed the 405 exit and kept going east toward Niagara Falls. When I drove into Canada on Friday night, I'd noticed the long lines of cars backed up waiting to get through US Customs, so I wasn't surprised.

Then, there were signs warning of construction delays on the 420, suggesting an alternate route through Niagara Falls. Whee! So I did that, and found myself driving along the Canadian side of the Falls. Pulled over to take a few pictures, and get some beer at the duty free shop. :-)

While I was parked at the duty free shop, I ran across the street to the Hard Rock Cafe, to get a t-shirt for a friend's colleague's daughter; she collects them from around the world.
