North Shore Vacation day #1 part 2

Part 2 of day #1 of our North Shore vacation!

So we got to our hotel and I was quite happy with the view we had.

This looks right out at the canal and the light houses, so we got to see ships coming and going all hours of the day.

We decided to head down to Canal Park and hang out for the rest of the day.

This is a view of Canal Park from the lighthouse, our hotel is the one on the right with the green roof, closest to the park and water

More views from lighthouse

Wyatt then had to walk accross the lift bridge to the other lighthouse, so thats what we did!

Half way accross

Made it!

After visiting the light houses and doing a lot of walking and running we decided to get some dinner. So we ordered in Famous Dave's in our hotel room and man let me tell you, it was SO good!

After dinner we went back to Canal Park so the kids could see some ships come in and out and they also wanted to throw rocks.

The ship Alexia came into port, it's a salty, which is a ocean ship, not a fresh water one. The kids loved watching it go in and when they blew the horn they both jumped.

Zack was in the stroller a lot but we got him out to watch the waves which he thought were very cool. Lucy just sat there, didn't want to do much of anything. I think she was just wore out.

Before we headed to get some ice cream another ship came out, this one is called the Canadian Transport.

Before getting some ice cream the kids found a fountain that they wanted to look at, so we let them play for a bit and enjoyed all the people watching. We got some ice cream and called it a night, it was a busy day of travel and lots of walking.
