niag0We made our annual trek to the Niagara Wine Festival yesterday, and got back too late to blog. Been out campaigning today for the Ontario Greens. It’s almost as if summer caught up at last — it was a lovely clear warm weekend, and the Friday downpour that was the remnants of Isabel left everything green and bright.

niag1The wine tour was a hoot — a bunch of us hired a schoolbus to take us around, so we didn’t have to ration our tastings, and we ate out on the patio of one of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s finest restaurants until the stars came out, and then sang songs on the bus all the way home. On the way we picked up some decent wines and discovered some new local artists — cast marble sculpturers Robert and Barbara Abram of Trenton ON (www.carversloft.com) — the piece pictured at left is actaully three feet tall —

and Niagara photographers Colin & Pat (colin@niagara.com) whose photos of Greece make me long to visit.

Back to regular rants tomorrow.
