I’ll bet you are all glad to see the sun shining today! AFter that LOVELy blizzard of snow storms that hit us yesterday. I haven’t checked on the weather network yet to see if they liked any of my pictures of videos I sent them of the storm. All labelled with my name, brand name and new travel blog name – idea girl canada. 🙂
It’s a great way to get your name out as a blogger and for people to look for your other “photographs” that you take, especially if you make them odd and interesting, which is something I always try and do.
I found out yesterday that the Town of Fort Erie was going to take care of the local tourists on the QEW Fort Erie, Niagara and Peace Bridge USA Canada Border crossing tourists. They opened a welcome mat (I AM sooo proud of you guys for doing this) at the Fort Erie Leisureplex and Crystal Ridge Arena. So I began to blog the locations, maps, along with where our other hotels are in town here – Clarion HOtel & Conference Centre, Comfort Inn and the Haven Motel. With maps to restaurants pizza pizza, and trailside bar n grill, mae’s restaurant (which was opened then closed AFTER i blogged it was open lol thanks to mIKE letting me know on facebook!)
and I posted the information about the YMCA Fitness Centre next door to the Leisureplex Kinsmen Hockey Skating Arena and Clarion HOtel & Conference Centre.
I made maps for everything and blogged all day and night until 346 am edt in the morning just in case there were people still out there stranded on the highway looking for a place to get warm and rest. I talked the owner of Trailside to offer free hot chocolates to the stranded tourists so she offered to do up to 100 or until she ran out. I haven’t called yet to see how that worked out for her!
She did tell me something I did not know! On Ridge Rd N by Dominion Rd behind the Trailside Bar n Grill Restaurant is a LARGE parking lot that can fit buses on it! Cool!
So I blogged that information as well!
I also sent a Facebook Message to #NIFF NIagara Integrated Film Festival about land possibly being for sale in Ridgeway and how we could create a year round film arts concerts venue there in that area! They loved the amount of space I showed them in the pictures, I still have to confirm how big the acres are. Jim Tibert told me we’ll need around 150,000 acres (not sure of the technicalities of this) to build the type of building I want, with ample parking for hundreds of thousands of people to attend year round and boost our tourism economy here. This has been my passion and project for the past year and a half, when we moved back to Fort Erie from St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.
Niff is looking for volunteers for it’s June 19 – 22, 2014 event so I’m giving them ideas (blogged on here) on just how to get 300 people to sign up!
Now as for the mapping, every single restaurant review that we film or photo, is getting maps from around the Niagara Region to the Buffalo and Niagara Falls International Airports for this month’s projects. I’m way behind in posting photos and videos (about 3 weeks of filming was done in 7 files lol) as I’ve begun therapy for my neck and back- pain management – yay!
I hope it can cure it, (here’s to hoping modern day technology can do that – i’ve been suffering with chronic pain for 7 years now..)
so here’s the maps I made march 12 2014
