Canada EH!

We left the heat wave of New York to come to the down pour of Niagara Falls. However, we all agreed that it was better to suffer the heat of NYC rather than walking the streets wet in storms. Steve had purchased us the Adventure Pass which included the Maid of the Mist, Journey Behind the Falls, White Water Walk and Niagara's Fury.

Maid of the Mist was the most exciting and wet of the attractions. This is the reason why you go to the falls. It is exhilarating to get that close to the falls...expect to get drenched. Getting wet here added to the rainy day. The walk was fun and provided an up close view to the level 6 waves. There was also a gum wall...and yes we let Hunter leave her DNA with all of the previous gum chewers. The journey behind the falls was pretty neat as it gave us some different angles to visualize. Nathan liked this attraction the least. He thought that it should really take  you behind the falls with a clear picture of the water. Niagara's Fury was a mixture of animation and motion picture of the creation of the falls. I liked it...and despite what Nathan will say....he was caught laughing.

The food was outrageously expensive and it was hard for me to grasp the cost of dinner here. Steve knew we were still hungry and the local DQ was in order for dessert. Hunter shopped for her hoodie and then her and Nathan retired for the night. Steve and I ventured back to the falls for a great fireworks show and a walk. The rain had finally stopped and the night sky was clear.

I just liked this picture

We awoke to perfect weather and were able to get a whole different view of the falls. And it made for a nice drive back into Rochester, NY.

  1. We were surprised how expensive KFC was in Canada. We ended up walking out and not eating there. And the KFC did not have mashed potatos or cole slaw!
