We journey on

This foray into the States (and a bit of Canada) had always been a four-stage thing: family reunion in Nashville, time with Dale’s folks in Garrettsville OH, a weeklong driving holiday and some final time with Dale’s family. We are now in part3 … time has really flown.

Yesterday, we headed northeast from Garrettsville, after a wonderful breakfast with Dale’s folks at a small Polish restaurant nearby. Mom is of Polish heritage going back a few generations … which made the tine special. It was their chance to farewell Jeremy – later today he’ll start doing his own thing in Canada and NYC. Bit concerned about the size and weight of his suitcase though. It’s been marvellous having him with us these first 11 days … he’s been a real pleasure to be around. He won’t be with us in the final chapter of our journeying here.

Yesterday we made it to Niagara Falls -a marvel to behold. We took advantage of the trolley-bus to get around. We were last here many moons ago … and never saw half then what we managed to see yesterday. We all took some amazing photos!

We are staying in Canada at the home 25 minutes from the Falls, of Ralph and Margaret. Margaret is a sister to David Teakle from our church and friend (not sister as earlier reported) of Lorna Lightowler from IUC. Ralph and Margaret are proving to be gracious hosts and offering marvellous hospitality. The connection? They’ve heard about Circles of Care from IUC and are keen to pick our brains on how our church does pastoral care. We look forward to the conversation tonight.

Today, before farewelling Jeremy we take the short drive back to the Falls (Canadian side) to take in the Maid of the Mist boat experience … wait for next post.
