Discovering More of Windsor

Our first stop was at the water fountain in front of the casino. The kids each made a wish and watched the water dance!

We all admired this beautiful sculpture. It is called "Tower of Freedom" and from what we read, there is another sculpture by Ed Dwight in Detroit, a companion to this one, both about the Underground Railroad. We will try to remember when we visit Detroit to look for its companion. Ed Dwight's website explains more about this monument (click here.)

This building got our attention because it was quite big, and we all liked the massive door. We found out by reading the sign, that it was used as an armoury in early 1900's.

We went to one of the parks in the city which has beautiful formal gardens and WWII airplanes and memorial plaques and sculptures for Army, Navy, and Air Force soldiers.

Princess loved the beautiful gardens:
