Fort Niagara, Erie Canals and more of the Falls
It also has a small museum and Old Fort Niagara which we decide to checkout.
This cat was just lounging around at the fort. He was pretty cool, after I took his picture he let me pet him.
The Fort is pretty cool and mostly setup as it would have been back in the day. There are people dressed in period garb telling you about various parts of the fort.
I love this kind of stuff provided they don't try to act too much.
We watched a blacksmith in the court main courtyard of the Fort make some tools and hooks and various items.
A little bit of rain started so we moved on.
The boat tour probably would have been fun but it was almost a 4 hour commitment and we were already kind of tired from hiking around the fort.
It is still a little damp and we want some coffee but find nothing in the generally Lockport area so we head back to the campground for a french press of coffee. We just miss the big fella below landing but manage to snap this blurry picture as we drive by it taxing.
After the coffee and a little relaxing we made dinner and decided to take the dogs to see the Falls at night. They are really lit up at night from the Canadian side.
