Detour to Niagara-on-the-Lake

If you’re ever in Niagara Falls, Canada, take a little detour to Niagara-on-the-Lake. This charming old town is situated on the shores of Lake Ontario, at the mouth of the Niagara River.

I wore my white linen blouse, a wrinkled look with lace detail and bell sleeves, so summery and cool. It goes with anything and this time I paired it with my paisley jeans, rolled up for a capri style.

My cousin and his family are touring Quebec and Ontario. After seeing the fabulous Falls for their first time, we enjoyed a relaxing afternoon in Niagara-on-the-Lake and met by the Gazebo. It was a perfect summer day: a walk by the lake, a stroll through town with 19th century houses, flowers in full bloom and lunch on an outdoor patio.

The Clock Tower in the heart of town

Tim Hortons is just the place to take our European visitors for coffee and donuts for a genuine Canadian experience.

Next, a drive to the Lavender shop. The heavenly fragrance envelopes you as you go through the purple doors and are greeted by a friendly employee who offers you a taste of lavender cookies. Once inside, no one can resist buying something.

 

 

 

This was one of those days that I wish would never end!

  2. How pretty Carmen! I remember my mom talking about Niagra on the Lake, I can’t remember if I was there or not. It looks lovely and so do you! Love your white linen top on you, so summery and pretty! I have gotten to love linen. The lavendar shop would be up my alley as I love lavendar, always have!
    thanks for linking friend!

With your romantic blouse, elegant, delicate, beautiful … and your pants with long capri, always perfect for your legs.

      I so much appreciate your kind comments! This is one of my favourite places to go for a day trip. Lake Ontario looks like an ocean and I love walking along the beach. Having my cousin and family made it even more wonderful to share it with them. I hope you enjoyed your holidays! Summer is fun! 🙂

      Oh definitely Ute! This is a town you don’t want to miss and it’s so close to Niagara Falls that both can be done on the same day. 🙂

        Super! I am closer to coming to you than ever….My sister made me a present and said ‘you wanted to go to Canada so badly, you can use it.’ So I need to think about next year, unfortunately I am bound to school holidays I don’t get any other time off. ♥

  7. Hi Carmen, Niagara on the lake looks like a very lovely place! I love the flowers by the clock tower and from that photo I can see how cute the town is. Its a great Pic of your cousin and his family , great memories for his Daughter! I really like your blouse, the lace detail is a stand out and must be comfy to wear with the bell sleeves. You sure could pair it with a lot of pants or skirt combos! We recently got a Tim Hortons close to Me ! Have a nice evening, Hugs, Terri xo.

      Thank you so much Terri! I know they will take many happy memories home with them and it makes a lasting impression on their daughter! They went Zip-lining by the Falls yesterday! Their vacation in Canada will be an adventure to remember!

      Have you been to the Tim Hortons where you live? 🙂

      It’s a must-see place Jodie! I’ll warn you, Niagara Falls is so crowded with tourist from all over the world. The short drive to Niagara-on-the-Lake was a well-kept secret, but more and more are discovering this charming little town off the beaten track. You’ll love this town and do take the time to visit the Lavender Boutique. The products are made in Niagara.
