I know I say this quite often, but I am amazed at how close we live to wonderful places to experience. Yesterday we visited the Hidden Valley Animal Adventure Park (see what it’s all about here). This is about a 50 minute drive away from the Island.
We live on a farm, we have lots of animals and own 34+ acres of land. Yet, my kids LOVE to visit other animal sanctuaries and open lands. We were hand feeding water buffalo, antelope, bison, zebras, camels, goats, cows, yaks, donkeys and so many other animals. I hope you enjoy some of the pictures from our adventure and take a minute to visit their website. My kids are already asking when we can go again.

I have a friend in town who currently resides in Florida (he grew up on the Island) and he is visiting Niagara Falls today. He took this stunning photo of the beautiful sky, mist and the falls from the American side. Growing up 15 minutes away from this location, each time you visit Niagara Falls the beauty is still awe inspiring!!
My son’s school had a field trip around the Island visiting our town hall, the local police station with the jail cells (the kids were able to enter them), and a few other original areas. They were given this picture as a momento of our Island. It’s shaped like a pork chop as you can see. That was the most amusing part for the kids.
The boat pictures on another post are pictures taken on the right side of the Island as you see it. Our home is located just left of the dirt divider you see running in the middle of the Island which is a pipeline. We call this Island home 🙂
