We arrived in Niagara Falls in the early evening of Memorial Day, when most everyone else was heading home after a long holiday weekend. We only stayed two nights, but it worked out perfectly because the holiday crowds were gone and the summer crowds had not yet arrived. We were able to stroll along and take lots of photos of the falls. I've seen photos of Niagara Falls but really didn't have a feel for the layout of the three falls until I was able to see it all in person. I was awed by the sheer power of that much water tumbling over the edge.
It was a beautiful day, not too hot, a little overcast at times, sunny at others. We spent most of the morning just enjoying the view.
We had lunch at a restaurant across the street. It's amazing how much better a hamburger and french fries taste when you have a view of Horseshoe Falls.
In the evening we took the elevator up to the restaurant in Skylon Tower.
The restaurant revolves, so we had a wonderful panoramic view while we enjoyed a scrumptious dinner.
Then we headed up to the observation deck, which we had almost completely to ourselves. We, of course, took more photos of the falls.
It was the perfect day, just the two of us enjoying the scenery, good food, beautiful weather, and each other. Here we are . . . at arm's length.
As usual, we captured a few reflections photos, too.
And finally, here's a look at the completed page in my 50 Things To Do Before I'm 50 mini-album.
