A casual trip to Niagara falls yielded a pretty cool find. Funny the things you discover when your not even looking!
Most of the barns on the homestead were built in the 1800s. My favorite is the one shown here. The symmetry of its doors and windows is simple and orderly. Everything about it feels well-proportioned. The barn was positioned so that this view is what the Park family saw when stepping out to do their chores each morning. In contrast to the tangled wilderness surrounding the farm, and the vastness of the lake behind it, the building conveys a reassuring sense of sturdiness, calm, and stability.

More from our Toronto visit.. Did you know that...
🔸Toronto’s CN Tower is one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. 🔸It is a 553.33 meter-high observation tower that makes it the tallest freestanding structure in the Western Hemisphere. 🔸CN is the acronym for Canadian National Railway as it was built by the state railway. 🔸The tower is struck by lightning around 75 times each year. 🔸The construction work started on February 6, 1973, and got completed in June 1976. 🔸Original construction cost was $63 million
🔸It was designed in such a way that it can withstand an earthquake of 8.5 on the Richter scale.
🔸CN Tower is almost vertical. It is off only by 1.1 inches.
🔸From the observation deck of the tower, you can see about 100 miles on a clear day.
🔸It has a Glass Floor that can hold the weight of five hippos at a time. This floor was built in 1994. 🔸The tower’s EdgeWalk allows you to lean back, hands-free over Toronto, Canada
Totally wanted to do the edge walk but wasn’t 100% comfortable. 😱 I settled for the elevator ride and walking on the glass floor instead. 😂
