NIAGARA FALLS

Over the weekend we spent two days in a tourist zone called Niagara Falls...if one strips away the tourist traps and the subsequent cheap thrill paraphenalia there were some really worthwhile activities still to indulge in and two days is hardly enough time. But in consideration of the 'Family fun' nature of the holiday we went on the Maid of the Mist boat ride and it was great. The cattle herding nature of the people sorting was less than desireable and most unpleasant but did move along at a reasonable pace considering it is PEAK season.,... the views and experience from the boat was exhilerating...and a never to be forgotten experience.





On the Maid of the Mist........ they wanted to get 'wetter'......








At the Water Fun Park .......... in the wave pool.







This Granite Ball was floating on water and the idea is to try to dislocate





Sunday Lunch................



As you can see i took this photo from INSIDE our room at the Brock....... not a BAD view if i do say so myself......

We had great fun and now need to REST a bit.....it was immensly inspiring and absolutely fun and a great "away from home' break.
