Love Locks!!

While we were in Canada, we stumbled upon a 
"Bridge of Locks for Lovers."
The first time I ever heard of this concept was a bridge in Paris,
where they are now being removed.
You can read about that bridge and the removal of the locks here and here.

Just as we were leaving, because I almost forgot,
we purchased a lock to hang on the bridge in Canada.


The hubs wanted the perfect spot, where our lock could "see" the falls.


You purchase your lock and personalize it...
I used our wedding anniversary date, not the date we visited,


and wrote this on the back.


It is not a very big or long foot bridge,





so here we hang, with a beautiful view of Niagara Falls!!

You are suppose to throw your keys into the falls, but I view that as litter,
so we kept ours.
I knew I would be saving them in our memory jar!

We were in Coeur d Alene Idaho and walked along a pier and I saw locks and I wondered what they were!!!
