The next day in Niagara Falls, Sean wanted to use the water park at the hotel since they gave us access to it. He’s not a big pool person, but he enjoyed it for a little bit, even going down the super fast slide. Brian forgot his suit, so the two of us just watched and ate a quick lunch.
Afterwards, we drove down to see Horseshoe Falls
What a spectacular wonder of nature!
Really you need to see this! One off the bucket list!
Remember that boat. 😉
Detail of the railing…very weathered!
Nice welcome center-like a mini mall
We had to find a plaque to get a Niagara Falls ‘virtual’ for geocaching.com
which was up a few flights of stairs. I got the shot above from there.
The American falls and the bridge to America
So we walked up and down here for a few hours and had decided to treat Sean to the restaurant over 500 feet off the ground-Skylon’s revolving restaurant!
Some pretty landscaping near the falls
Brian and I had the prime rib
What a view of the falls and the area!
We went up to the very top observation deck which was very windy!
The elevator up!
They take you in front of a green screen before dinner. Sean bought these and we bought a few shots of us at the dinner table.
We went to the Fallsview Casino
So we blew $20, but Sean actually won $11! Big gamblers we are not!
There was a little shopping area, so I bought a few Christmas ornaments, body lotion by a Canadian company and a bottle of wine from the area.
We walked around the main area after dinner and did a little more shopping; we even to a Hershey store! We live a few hours from Hershey, PA. I saw a really neat tie-dye shirt with a Hershey kiss in the middle, had to have that for my collection. The chocolate is made up there and much sweeter and richer.
We also went to a grocery store to get a few things for breakfast too.
Next post will be about the Maid on the Mist!
