What can I say - I've put in too many photos, but its so hard to decide!

Weather wasn't the greatest - cloudy most of the day. We went on the Maid of the Mist early in our visit, which was a mistake. We apparently had one of the wetter rides and got drenched, so our baggage had to do some drying out afterwards, as did our sandals and hair and everything else, even with the slickers provided. It was lots of fun though!

We also went up the Skylon Tower to see the falls from above, which was good, and it also let you see into New York State on the other side of the River, and over as far as Buffalo. We went back to the motorhome to rest for part of the afternoon, then went our for a nice dinner, before getting out the tripod and going over for the evening lights. It was a lovely warmish evening and had a good time sitting at the edge of the walkway trying out things with the camera, waiting for the fireworks to start.

After the fireworks were over, we got the motorhome and drive a bit south to Fort Erie on the edge of Lake Erie, where we spent another WalMart night.
