So Dave & I took a quick get away.
We decided to take a weekend get away to Niagara Falls in Canada. It was beautiful, but the water didn't seem to be as powerful as it once was a decade ago. However, at night when the sky is clear, and they illuminate the falls, both the American and Horseshoe falls.. They are breathtaking.
Dave & I had fun, helping a gentleman, he wanted his picture taken at night in front of the falls.
Well it is a very hard thing to do, with flash, all you can see is a face, with whited out blurry falls behind him, with no flash, all you see is the falls, with a shadow in front of them.. My wise husband comes up with the idea for me to hold a small flashlight with just enough light streaming through my fingers to show the mans face, and with no flash takes the picture. It was a very cool effect.
I was proud of my husband. ( Shhhh don't tell him)
We did a few fun things while we were there,, We of course had to visit the Hard Rock Cafe & buy yet another T-shirt.
We of course did Journey under the falls.. it was windy, but we did get some great shots.
We did a 3D-4-D movie.. That was totally 100% LAME..Not worth our money at all.
We did a ride called FURY.. It was pretty cool.. nice effects.. even snow...
We rode the Incline, even got a few nice shots from there..
We thought about riding up to the top of the Skylon, then changed our minds.
after a long day of getting wet at everything we did. Dave was tired.. and I was also, however, I walked across the street from our hotel and there was a miniature golf course and it was all dinosaurs.. Very cool. I went over and spent about an hour taking pictures.
As it was going to rain all day on Saturday, Dave and I decided to surprise Shannon & Braeden with a visit, as where they live is only 3 hours from the falls.
So up on Sat. morning and across the Rainbow Bridge back into the USA.. we were sitting there, and all of a sudden it was hailing.. wow.. sun shining above us, a rainbow to the left of us, traffic all around us and hail... in the words of the lion from the Wizard of OZ, "Strange weather we're having, aint it?"
Drove 3 hours to Shannon's I-90 was a horrible bumpy road, it was like riding on an accordion for miles.. I think any fillings our teeth once had, are now in NY..
We had a great visit with Shannon, Justin, & Braeden. We gave Shannon a christmas present early.. 2 new Futons. She was happy. I'm glad.
We drove home on Sunday and over all we had a great time.
Until next time..
Enjoy life to it's fullest.
