Falls, Falls and more Falls.

Just got back from Niagara Falls. This was my first visit. I've always heard that Canadian Falls are better than the American Falls. It never occurred to me that you could look to the right and see the Canadian Falls.

And then look to the left from the same spot your standing in and see the American Falls.
My question is...Knowing how we are, why did we let them keep the prettier and bigger falls?

You can take a ride on the Maid of the Mist, shown here below. That will give you a close up view as they go right up to the falls, as seen in the top picture.


Canada was very pretty. We took a drive to Niagara on the Lake and the views on the way there were beautiful.

Niagara on the Lake was a very cool town if you love the boutique type stores and variety of restaurants. Being a fan of scouting out all things haunted, I was lucky to be with my friend Patti who searches out angels, we ended up eating at the Angel Inn where the ghost of Captain Swayze is the local haunt. I really need to go back to visit because I didn't get to fully enjoy all Niagara had to offer. I wasn't feeling well which was apparent when I threw up outstide the window of the restaurant in front of everyone eating lunch, creating my own personal falls, yuck. This time it was me who wasn't the greatest traveling companion. Another thing this area has to offer that I didn't get a chance to enjoy is the wineries. There was also a beautiful hotel right in the middle of the main shopping area called The Prince of Wales Hotel and Spa. I saw it listed on a sight in the $250+ section.

If that wasn't enough, back by the falls, the Fallsview Casino. Sounds like the perfect vacation destination for me. It was kind of wierd to put monopoly money into the slot machines.

Of course one of the first things that I did when I got home was look for information on the daredevils that have gone over the falls. What a bunch of nut balls.

And now-- more on Martha Stewart. She made these really cool glitter pumpkins and gravestones on her daily show, but I can't seem to get my computer to cooperate with me and take me to her website to see if there are pics and directions on her site. No marthastewart.com for me, boo.
