Niagara trip....part III


Continuing on the trip, we drove up the Niagara parkway on our way to the Falls, it was about a 20 min. drive from the cute town of Virgil where we stayed at the b&b in vino country. It was a lovely day and a lovely drive, and on the way we stopped at the flower clock and the butterfly conservatory which i featured in my last blog entry.


i snapped this photo of a stately looking building from the car....


Upon arriving at Niagara falls we saw the mini CN tower, the Skylon tower....

(Okay, i'm feeling too lazy too organize all the photos in a organized manner, and i'm having problems with my blog photo arrangments, so the rest of the photos are random pics of us on the Maid of the Mist boat and touring the tacky, touristy town with all the freaky, annoying museums. Enjoy the show!)


see the giant herseys' kiss?

king kong has taken over Niagara falls.....run for your lives!!



after walking through the town i was glad to be out of there, so crowded!


this is me doing an impression of Paris Hilton.....



the American falls are on the left, the Canadian horseshoe falls to the right...

whirlpools near the falls...

ooooh, scary!





the maid of the mist boat tour was a blast, in more ways than one...those raincoats don't really keep you dry!


we saw this wonderful rainbow....

Steve and I were drowned rats afterward but totally refreshed!
(click on above photo to see happy smiley face birds)


another rainbow shot....ahhh!

this is the closest we got to the big gusher....it was terrifying and exhilerating....the sound was thunderous! ( click to enlarge photo if you are brave enough!!)



the trip almost over we headed home, viewing a lovely sunset....



oops, almost forgot to show you this yummy fudge shop....we bought some of the Chocolate walnut one...so creamy and rich!

pensive thought on the drive home....


Hope you all enjoyed my three part photo montage of our trip....it was a nice 2 day getaway and i would love to go back again one day! Even though i've visited Niagara Falls many times since i only live a few hours away, i much prefer the peaceful Niagara-on-the-lake area to the busy, crowded tourist jammed town!
