Day Two: Wednesday, August 7th
Oakville to Niagara Falls to Jordan Valley (128 km)
I promised my oldest daughter we would visit Niagara Falls during this trip. I also told her there would be a huge amount of tourists, something I don't like. Luckily for me, my daughters don't like too much tourists neither (I only learned that on the spot, and that was a big relief for me). Homo touristus in overflow, combined with a $20 CAD parking ticket isn't a very stimulating start for our trip, but the Falls stay impressive and are a must-see when you're around.
After taking in the sights, we make our way back to the highway and head back west toward a camping ground in Jordan Valley. The adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support systems feel a bit weird in the beginning, but bit by bit I do learn to trust the system, and even look for situations in which there might be a chance the system fails. The built-in security regulations are amply sufficient, and it proves there's no need to worry.
We arrive at Dressel's Jordan Valley Campground, and receive a warm welcome by the owner and by our first wildlife: some squirrels. Dad is putting the tent together while his kids are playing with the animals and discovering the pool.
We also discover THE shop, which we will find all over the territory: Tim Hortons.
