Field Trip: Welland Canal

When we had our trip to Niagara Falls we prefaced in it with a camping trip and a stop at the Welland Canal.   I couldn't make it work to see a boat go through, but we did see the Canal and had a chance to go through the Museum they have at lock 7.

We had a good time at this museum, learning a lot, enjoying the air conditioning provided, and just moseying around together.

Here are some of the things we saw:


We had a good time and were glad that we went.   It was too bad I couldn't coordinate the trip with a boat passing through, but perhaps next year.  :)

  3. This is something that's been on my list to do sometime when we're in southern Ontario. We've seen the locks on the C&O Canal, which is on a much smaller scale, so I think it would be so wonderful to see the big ships too!

    1. I am hopeful next year to see a big ship go through, they have a website you can use to see when they are passing through... so hopefully we can time it well! :)
