Just a footnote to the Great Lakes Freighters.

On the night of the 10 november,1975,  the S.S. Edmond Fitzgerald left Superior, Wisconsin with a load of iron ore heading for Cleveland, Ohio. She was caught in a very bad storm and tried to run to Whitefish Bay for shelter.
She never made it and was lost with all hands( 29 )  Its still not exactly known what happened as no Maydays were sent.

There are lots of acticles on You Tube about the sinking.

Heading over the Garden City Skyway take the Niagara-on the Lake exit and it will bring you to Hwy #55, which is Niagara Stone Road. which has about a dozen Winerys along it.

But before you get to them,just as you turn onto the road,on the right hand side there is a bar. I believe its called Club 55 now,years ago it was the Rainbow when the Garden City Race Track was across the road.  Then it became the Private Eye, a raunchy and rough strip-joint,among other things.  Famous for Bouncing Betty,the 320 lbs pole dancer, and the midget wrestlers,not to forget the Velcro Wall. ::) .    Coming back from Buffalo after watching a N.H.L. Game we would always stop in.

We,re in Niagara Country now, Tourism,History,and Vineyards.

As you go down Niagara Stone Rd. take your pick of tasting rooms at the Wineries, my favorites were Jackson-triggs,Pellers, and on the lakefront, Konzalmans.

The road will take you straight into Niagara-on -the-Lake,where you can spend hours wandering about.
