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


in Canada.

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 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


beautiful day.

There was


lots of shopping


to be done.



pictures to


pose for.

From the Canadian side, we enjoyed a different view of the


American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls as well as


Horseshoe Falls.



flowers up and


down the


parkway were beautiful.

Now, all that shopping and walking worked up some real hunger, so it was off to the


restaurant for dinner.  Tonight,


Andrew and


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...


092  Canada for a great day.

And, by the way your request, we left several US dollars there today!


  1. love your photos of the falls, especially the rainbow during the day and then the lit up like a rainbow one in the evening. just loverly.

  2. Looks like a great time at Niagra Falls. We have been there years ago but have never seen the lights at night. Quite interesting. Loving your pictures!

  3. Just a terrific day, and your documentation makes it be just like being there, like I said before it brings back memories of a trip with my Grandparents many years ago, how many? I remember Grandpa had a 1955 Dodge. Our neighbors to the north always give us a super welcome, and Tim Horton's is a great stop, I had my first this spring in Ohio. Now we get some mailorder once in a while, I will have to keep a can or two in the trailer for when we meet up with our Canadian friends when they are down here. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

  4. You should go to see Niagara on the Lake. It's a cute little town.

  5. Hi Mark & Dortha
    I have enjoyed your blog so much. It has been really fun following along. Jerry & I were at Niagara Falls a few years ago. Great place.
    I love seeing the grandchildren. They look so much like your children when they were young. Continue having fun and keep us posted. Each day I can hardly wait to see where you have been that day. Tell Lauren she looked very pretty in the hat. They are great looking kids.
    Have a blessed and fun trip.

  6. Thanks for all of the pictures. I have never been there before or should I say yet and with all of JB doctors appointment we may not make it this fall as planned. so thanks again I really have something to look forward to. So glad you enjoyed Canada there is so much to see here and one day we would love to show you some of our beautiful Country.

    Take good care

  10. What a great day... very interesting to read how much you accomplished in one day. I'm glad that you time in Canada was good and hope you will come again !


  11. Oh what a great place and they will remember that one forever too. We were there about 25 years ago, and should go back again soon. They say someday those falls will be gone, as the lip edge keeps eroding year after year.
