My sister lives in Pickering and I visited her last year.  My nieces took me all around Toronto and into the city centre.  The highlight of my visit was going to Niagara falls.  The horseshoe fall is incredible.

Can't disagree with you about Niagara Falls, also nice if you go under the falls  :thumbsup:

@HooliganHeart - welcome to the forum - best wishes on all your sewing endeavours.
Have a sister back in N.Ireland for the second time and can't settle at all....no roots...i.e. family....and they would have gone back again to the Toronto area but for Covid.  All we hear is how good Canada is and how it is done in Canada etc.
She left N.Ireland at least 30 years ago.
