Growing up in Buffalo, New York most of my life, it was nothing to hop in the car on a Sunday and head on over to Canada for the day. We were just that close and going over the border was not so bad. Of course now, laws have changed and you need a passport or enhanced license.
Seeing the Falls in Canada is an amazing site to see. I have always known there is an American side to the Falls, however, we have never been.
We decided, it was a great time to do so. SIMPLY an AWESOME day, that I would recommend anyone to do if you are in the area.
Little did we know we were going on an amazing little adventure, and YES, we were quite fashionable.We definitely are a silly family, and dressing in these poncho's just brought it out even more so.
This just may be my Christmas card for 2011~
|Never heard of this tour, but it was reasonable at 11.00 per adult and 8.00 for kids.|
|When I tell you there were hundreds of seagulls ( I think that is what this is) there were hundreds plus. Just beautiful!|
|If you look closely you can see them from a far.|
|Skylon tower, this is from the American side.|
|Famous Maid of the mist. I am too chicken to do this. You should see how close it comes to the Falls. Maybe next time.|
|Alex looking up at amazement...this was so much fun. We actually saw a double rainbow. I could not get pictures as we were getting soaked.|
|This is what Alex was looking up at.|
|That is my sis and her boyfriend and his daughter. I took this picture from above, as someone else was taking their picture.|
Thank you all so much for coming along our two week vacation with us. We sure packed in a lot of sites and food. I have more fun famous food places to share. However, first I must lose a few vacation pounds.
We are heading home now.
I sure will miss my Mom and sissie.
