Horseshoe Falls and Skylon Tower

Gallery

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!

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!

We went up to the very top observation deck which was very windy!

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!
