Niagara-on-the-Lake was the last stop on my clock-wise trip around Lake Ontario. This very pretty town is perfect for a weekend getaway. All my breakfast mates at Brockamour Manor had been to Niagara-on-the-Lake many times and still found things to do. Niagara is wine country. Excellent wine and food can be found everywhere. There’s the Shaw Festival theater, great shopping and trips into the country side for the Butterfly Conservatory and nearby Niagara Falls. More on Niagara-on-the-Lake soon.
Here is the final leg of my trip in pics.
Peller Estates Winery is a grand winery with tasting room and elegant restaurant.
Winery Chef Jason Parsons in the action at Peller Estates Winery before I sat down to an amazing Chef's Table of wonderful food and wine pairings.
The lovely dining room at Brockamour Manor. Too bad the picture with the six people I shared breakfast with didn't turn out very well.
Strewn Winery includes a cooking school, restaurant and tasting room.
This is where Jane Langdon teaches hands-on culinary techniques and recipes at the Wine Country Cooking School. We made Thai Spring Rolls.

The Niagara fruit belt is known for many varieties of fruits and vegetables but I had not been aware of Grimo Nut Nursery. I bought two pounds of walnuts - a flavor like I've never tasted before.
The Beauchapeau Hat Shop is a necessary stop when shopping Niagara-on-the-Lakes' Queen Street.
The gardents of Niagara-on-the-Lake are beautiful. (And this was a dreary day!)
The Shaw Festival runs April 1 to October 31 with 10 plays in repetoire.
On the Queen Elizabeth Way heading back into Toronto.
My thanks to Tourism Niagara for their support with this trip.
