November 2-6, 2006:  Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Having never visited Toronto, Ontario, before, I was quick to accept an offer to visit my friends Lee Rumohr and Melissa Veszi this month.

After a couple of days checking out the city, we headed down to Niagara Falls for a chilly look at a truly spectacular sight.  The water was beautifully lit with alternating colored spotlights.

Of course, the highlight of the trip was spending time with a couple of loving friends.

It was pretty sad to be leaving so soon.
