Day Two - Toronto

Woke up ludicously early, as you might imagine. We were out and about before the city woke up for Sunday morning. We took a stroll and then a streetcar down to the harbourfront, where we milled around a bit before ambling up to the CN Tower. No, I didn't stand on the glass floor. I thought I could - until I got about a foot away and instinct kicked in.

After a snack we ventured onto a tour bus and then on a boat trip around the islands, (the boat was nice but not particularly interesting, imo). Then after lunch at the Harbourfront Centre, we took the bus around the city before getting off in Chinatown and walking back to the hotel. Dinner was Thai. Yum.

Day 3 - Toronto to Niagara (+Niagara on the Lake)

Another early start.

We took the streetcar to Union Station to pick up the car (Impala or similar. Alas it was the 'or similar'!). Got lost trying to find the rental place, but once in the car it was an easy trip down to Niagara, where we went for a stroll before missing dinner (a bone of contention) and going for a scenic drive to Niagara-on-the-Lake.
