I didn't get any decent shots of the sky this week so I went into my archives and got a couple from a trip up to Niagara Falls a few years ago. It was a joyous occasion as my sister and niece were visiting and this was an all girls' weekend only. We took a couple of days to get there and what a road trip it was. We had an incredible time, the icing on the cake seeing those incredible Falls.
It was the first for my niece and me, but my sister had visited 25 years previously, with her husband when he was in Canada on a business trip. Gregg and I were living in Rhode Island at the time and they eventually came down and visited us there. He was in the navy back then.
These two photos were taken on the Canadian side. We stayed in one of the many hotels overlooking the Falls - right hand side of the picture - on the 22nd floor. I remember saying to the gentleman at the desk when I called to book a room, "Are you sure we will have a good view of the Falls from our room?" He patiently said, "Yes Madam, you'll have a great view of them" and that we did. The hotels are designed so that each guest will have a great view. The three of us just sat on the floor because the windows were floor to ceiling, and took it all in. I don't think we moved for a couple of hours as we were so in awe of them. Then we thought it would be a good idea to go down and see them up close. I'll share more photos in a later post.
