A Honeymoon Getaway

After the liturgical frenzy of Easter weekend, we escaped the hustle and bustle of Arkona by crossing southwestern Ontario to the turbulent junction of Lakes Erie and Ontario.

Our family was greeted by warm cookies to the ritzy (by our standards) Doubletree Resort Lodge in touristique Niagara Falls. We settled into our 2-room suite where much TV was watched and much relaxation was had on the luxurious duvet-covered, king-sized bed.

While there was much anticipation about the pool (Rei had been wearing her swimsuit in the house at any and every opportunity), the actual aquatic adventure was less enthusiastically received.

The irony of our accommodation is found in the neighbouring establishment, Econolodge, which hosted our previous Niagara getaway of 2002. Marketed for the thrifty, we shivered by space heater and endured frat-boy parties. Needless to say, we enjoyed our lodgings more this time.
