NIAGARA FALLS

While waiting to cross the border,
Mom tried to get a picture
of the Canadian flag
as it played in the breeze.

After a short wait at the border,
Mom and Dad made it through
and went to their hotel.
They had a room on the 29th floor
overlooking the falls.



They rode the
Falls Incline Railway
back and forth
from their hotel
to the Niagara Falls.

This is the Niagara Falls Visitor Center
with the spray of the falls in the background.

And Mom doing a little shopping.

And they watched and photographed the falls.
They both found them fascinating.

Of course, no visit to Niagara Falls
would be complete without
a ride on
The Maid of the Mist.

Where Mom got completely drenched.
She wanted to get the full effect of the falls
so she didn't wear her hood during the ride.

XOXO

That all brings back memories. On our first date we went to Niagara Falls. Of course it was in January so it looked a little different.

Heehee! Great pictures! My granny and grandpa grew up just a few miles from Niagra Falls, and often went there when they were 'courting' (granny and grandpa are OLD), and bring out pictures of when the boat was the original Maid of the Mist! (Did I mention that Granny and Grandpa are OLD?!?) Looks like they are having fun!

A picture perfect rip to the falls! What beautiful weather you had (mom says it always rains when she goes!). Bet that was a great view from your room - only thing better is if the view would have contained some Scotties, right?

I Work at the falls Incline Railway and a true Canadian. If you come in the winter months when the river at the bottom of the falls freezes over, then its more beautiful. And winters best time because of the Winter Festival Of Lights where they light up 2000 + lights
