As we traveled along the road from Windsor, Ontario to Niagra Falls, on the second day of our trip through Canada on our way to Maine, we passed an area whch bad drying sheds for tobacco. Maybe there is something special about this section of Canada, sur- rounded by water on three sides -- Lake Huron on the west, Lake Erie on the south and Lake Ontario on the east -- or perhaps there is something unique about its sctl, but here in "cold" Canada, they were producing tobacco, Seems to me it was burley tobac- co {is that kind especially for pipes7) -- whatever kind, they were grow- ing this "southern" crop in Canada. There was also much fruit grown in this section -- apples, peaches and some grapes. Sometime in the afternoon we reached Niagra Falls, where we spent a few hours viewing this natural wonder. We stopped on the Canadian side, where we could look across to the main part of the falls. We could look down and see the excursion boat as it took people up to nearly under the falls. But we did not tarry here, we had a trip east to make. We drove across the bridge above the fall in- to the U.S.A. and followed the shore of Lake Ontario.

We finally reached Keesville and drove over to Port Kent, where we boarded the ferry across Lake Champlain. This was an experience for the Walls -- it is fourteen miles across to Burlington, Vermont. We drove our little blue Rambler on to the ferry beat -- we could not see either shore at times -- we felt like we were on the ocearL From Burlington, we headed east and a little north across Vermont and New Hampshire.
