heading into this the first 200th celebratory (is that quite the right word?) year of the War of 1812 I am setting some plans. First to visit Fort York which I never managed to get to in my many years of living in Toronto. Secondly to spend a weekend down near Niagara Falls and to visit Fort George and Fort Erie. I plan on taking many photos during these two trips. I also plan on reading Pierre Berton’s account of the war. Finally, I will eat some selected Laura Secord chocolates.
