Before I begin with the main post, I'd like to welcome my new friends from the Rach's Campaign. I do apologize for not stopping by your blogs. As most of you know I am on vacation in Canada. Not much time to hop around, so I hope you can forgive me. I will be visiting soon. You can count on it.
As I promised, you will be experiencing Niagara Falls in this post. After a very long day of driving and partying with the TART, I finally arrived at the Falls around nine o'clock. Talk about bedlam. It seemed like a Saturday night in Las Vegas. A huge Casino dominated the strip as people everywhere filled the streets and sidewalks while cars honked. I pulled into my hotel and checked in.
Excited about the fact my room had a coveted Falls view, I took the elevator to the fourteenth floor, exited, and rolled endless luggage and computer crap down the long corridor. Entering, I ran to the wall to wall windows and looked for the falls. Within the darkness I could only see what looked like a trickle. Disappointed, I changed and ran to the casino next door and walked out to view the falls from the smoker's deck off the deli... My jaw dropped.
Before retiring, I left all the drapes open and crashed.
Filtered light woke me up the following morning. My eyes opened to a stunning view of Niagara lake and the side corner of the Falls.
But let me tell you friends, there is NOTHING more thrilling to be right in front of them as you will see from the pics.
Although a cloudy, overcast day, thanks to hurricane Irene, the Falls still stopped all its viewers in their tracks. By late afternoon the sun came out and I managed to capture a rainbow inside the FALLS. YAY! (Please remember friends to enjoy my pics, but please don't repost or use them without my permission. They are all originals.)
Are you now wanting me to clam up and show the pics? Okay.... HERE THEY ARE!
As if the Falls isn't awesome enough, lets add a bird in flight.... (No, there is nothing wrong with my camera... this was a very gray morning)
Can't you just fell the rage and the spray?
A little color on this gray morning.... These lovely gardens are adjacent to the Falls.
A hint of green as the water thunders down the rocks.
A truly magnificent view...
You just can't take a bad picture....
MOI ... This proves I was there.
A bit of light really brings the Falls to life.
And now... RAINBOW FALLS....
Well, I hope you all enjoyed the tour... Stay tuned for more pics... Next stop Montreal.
