Saturday morning sunrise was gloomy and and partially foggy. However the colourful and cute small town Niagara-on-the-Lake makes even that kind of weather festive and joyful. It is the most loveable touristic place in Niagara Falls area. No matter what season it is there are a lot of people on the streets of this beautiful town. Let me show you what it looks like in the early morning.
Definitely, they are not native Canadians. However they are here and living their hard immigrant life.
We say good bye to July again. It happens too often.
The Welland Canal locks allow large ships over 200 yards in length that may weigh approximately 30,000 tons to travel between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie in spite of the 326.5 ft. difference in elevation. The Welland Canal locks lift and lower these ships with the help of gravity and large quantities of water. The force of gravity is used to fill or drain a lock moving about 20 million gallons of water in about 11 minutes. It is this movement of water that actually lifts or lowers a ship in a lock. The force of gravity is so strong that it draws this water a distance of 27 miles from lake Erie to Lake Ontario filling and draining the 8 locks in between. (wellandcanal.com)
Sunflowers all the time watching to the East. Probably they are named not only because they look alike, but because they miss and wait for the Sun all the time.
I am not going to write down about this beautiful place. For me it is just one of my favorite places related to our happy life for 23 years in the most popular among the people town of Oakville. Paletta Park is not located in Oakville but in Burlington, however both of these two towns flow smoothly from one to the other. Crossing these towns we pretty often make a short visit to some of our favorite places. Unfortunately, the towns lost their charm because of being overpopulated and become mostly looking like a city. However in the early morning or bad weather they are still the same like we found them at the very first time we saw them.

Beautiful morning time. The sun rises pretty early this time of the year. We are almost at the summer solstice.
To make pictures of chicks is not safe. While I tried to make some, Robin-mother attacked me. Then I have to do so through the window.
We have Robin nest right behind the window this year. It is fun to watch how they treat their eggs and chicks.
