Friday started a little on the slow side. We slept in, made breakfast pizza, did the laundry, and made our plan for the day.
And, around noon, with cameras and passports in hand, we headed out for a day
Once we were parked, we walked to the
visitor center where we purchased tickets for a couple of the local attractions. As it would turn out, we were just in time to make the next showing of
Niagara's Fury. I knew it must be more than a movie when they issued us
rain ponchos! I was right...it was more like a Disney ride!
After getting all wet...we had plenty of time before the next tour, so we decided to get lunch.
Mark had heard from some of our Canadian friends that Tim Horton's coffee is good and he wanted to try some, so it was off to
Tim Horton's for lunch. Not only was the coffee good, the sandwiches were great...and so were the muffins and donuts!
After a good lunch, we made our way to the
journey behind the falls. Once again, we were issued rain ponchos. LOL....there is something about this place, you are always getting wet!
We took the elevator down to the bottom of the falls where we walked through tunnels that led us to
portals were you could look behind the falls.
One place you could
walk out on a platform that is level with the bottom of the falls.
Once, we were back to the top, we just enjoyed the
lots of shopping
to be done.
From the Canadian side, we enjoyed a different view of the
American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls as well as
flowers up and
parkway were beautiful.
Now, all that shopping and walking worked up some real hunger, so it was off to the
restaurant for dinner. Tonight,
Lauren both tried Sushi! However, I am not sure it will be ranked among their top favorites. LOL
We continued our walking until it was time for the
moon to come out, the
lights to come on and the
falls to light up!
What a great day this has been, but it wasn't complete without the
Afterwards, it was back across Rainbow Bridge to the USA...
And, by the way JB...at your request, we left several US dollars there today!
