Down in St Louis...

After a fabulous 3 days of R&R in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada we've currently enjoying the hospitality of Mike & Melanie Perry (of TechTea & Mistreess of the Dorkness fame) in St Louis, Mo.

Yesterday saw us at the wonderful St Louis zoo and later at the Schalfly boutique brewery...

more to follow :)

More Images from before...






Some more images of Niagara Falls - views from our Hotel room

The North America tour...






Well I was hoping to post something earlier than this but the internet connection in New York City was appalling... however we (errr......) I managed to snagged approx 1400 photos of the big apple before heading towards the capital of New York state... Albany. :)


On our last night in NYC, we managed to catch up with SSR friend, Freya and her daughter Vanessa and headed out to catch a live comedy show - it was great.


Albany saw me with a thmpin' head-cold during the first half of the week but thankfully that disappeared just in time for the Big Day... Jen & Roy's wedding and it was absolutely fabulous...


With Jen & Roy on their "honeymoon", Albany friends James & Kira showed us the sights around Saratoga Springs...


With Father's Day in the US, we boarded the Amtrak train bound for Niagra Falls and upon reaching the border, the train was detained for over an hour or so whilst immigration searched the train... the "alleged felon" was lead away handcuffed...


so upon arriving at our hotel imagine our surprise when we were greeted with these fabulous breathtaking views of the falls
