Sault St. Marie, Canada

My wife and I spent a 4 day weekend up in Sault St. Marie, Ontario. The motive for the trip was to see the Agawa Canyon which is just east of Lake Superior.

Here is my first batch of photos.

The first shows a sign for the city taken down near the waterfront. The next is the historic Ermatinger house which dates back some 200 years. The third is inside the Bush plane museum showing a gas powered plane that was the first in Canada to go 1000 metres in the air. The last was taken at the waterfront with the bridge to the USA in the background.

Locks

To manage the 21 foot drop between Lake Superior and Lake Huron there is a set of locks at Sault St. Marie. These pictures were taken beside the Canadian locks.

The first picture shows a historic building at the locks and the next three pictures show my daughter and myself having some fun.

The Art Gallery

A few more photos from Sault St. Marie.

The first photo struck me as odd in that it had a professionally made sign saying that the shop specialized in foul language. I thought that instead, they should just hire employees that didn't swear. However my wife pointed out that it was a tattoo shop, so it was probably the customers that were using foul language as they were being tattooed.

The next three photos were taken at the local art gallery. The gallery itself was very small, having art in just three rooms and one hallway. I did find a nice clown character though. I seemed to fit in nicely with that exhibit.

Agawa Canyon

Finally the canyon itself. The Agawa canyon is four hours north of Sault St. Marie by train. Time on the train passed quickly watching streams, hills, and fall colours pass by.

Pictures are as follows.

1) My wife and I beside the train.
2) The view into the canyon from a 300 foot high lookout.
3) The Bridal Veil falls in the canyon.
4) My leg trick in front of the falls.
5) My leg trick in front of the train.

My daughter nearly dropped the camera taking picture #5. Although the train had not started moving, it did blow its horn just when she was about to snap the shot. The horn was the last call signal to board the train.

Thanks for the encouragement.

In the past few years I've been to California, Las Vegas, The Grand Canyon, Boston, and Maine. I hadn't considered doing my photo op's.

However, the next time I'm down in the States I will definitely take some of these kind of photos.

Company Party

We had our company Christmas party last night. I heard 3 or 4 glasses drop and break during the night but luckily I didn't drop mine. Enjoy!

Craig, now this picture makes more sense, I can see you passing any sobriety test....



Officer: "Sr. step on the white line and walk towards me" '

Craig:"what, you think I'm drunk? check this out!!"

Officer: "Nah, this guy can't be drunk, go on, have a safe trip home"

New York

My travel log continues...

Our family visited New York city last weekend. I'd been there in 1989 for a business trip. The city has improved a lot since my first trip. In 1989 for example the subway system was pretty unsightly with graffiti, homeless people on the platforms, even pools of urine.

Glad to say that the city looks very nice these days. Enjoy the photos. The one of the NYC skyline was taken on Ellis Island.

More NYC

We also had a chance to walk through Central Park. We saw roughly the bottom half of the park.

After Central Park, we made our way over to Gray's Papaya on Broadway and 72nd. If you've ever seen the 1997 film "Fools Rush In" there is a scene at the Grand Canyon in which Salma Hayek gives a box of Gray's Papaya hot dogs to Matthew Perry. He makes a big deal out of them.

We thought that the hot dogs were pretty good but not as good as portrayed in the movie. Also we expected large sausage style hot dogs but they only sell small hot dogs.

For you Die Hard fans, the 3rd movie (Die Hard: With a Vengeance) has Gray's Papaya in the background as well when Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson are talking on a payphone.

The fact that you do these poses in public, and your wife still stays with you, I think is an amazing feat.

There is something to be said for watching certain people flex when getting into certain cars.
