Our trip from Verona to Youngstown was 204 miles of mostly interstate toll road with the last half of it battling those winds again. We are staying at Four Mile Creek State Park which is a very nice park with very large sites. We have 30 amps but otherwise are self-contained. The Verizon coverage is very weak but the satellite comes in strong and was a quick set up. The park is on Lake Ontario and you can even see Toronto across it from our shoreline.
Friday we went to see Niagara Falls. We were going to see it from both the American and Canadian side but after seeing it from the Canadian side, we decided we there wouldn't be any advantage to also see it from the American side, so we didn't. We can't imagine seeing from only the American side as many do. You would be closer to the American Falls, especially from the observation tower, but you wouldn't really be able to see the falls like you can from the Canadian side as you can only see it from behind and beside it. Horseshoe Falls was absolutely magnificent. It is so large and almost completely surrounds the Maid of the Mists boats that take people into the mist to get drowned! It puts out so much mist that when the wind blows towards the Canadian side, the mist drifts way across the street and across the parking lot resulting in a rainbow when the sun is shining. We only viewed the falls. We didn't take advantage of any of the attractions like Maid of the Mists, or Behind the Falls, or Niagara Fury and any of the others since all we really wanted to do was see the falls. We didn't feel the need to experience getting drowned to feel like we had been there. :)
Saturday was spent watching college football. Sadly our Gator coaches hadn't watched tapes of previous LSU games and the tricks Les Miles plays when attempting field goals. The whole world was hollering to watch for the fake but it apparently wasn't loud enough!!
Sunday we hiked around the large campground and then went into Lewiston, which is a little village a short distance from Youngstown to get a Sunday paper and a few other items we needed since Youngstown doesn't have much of a retail district. We then relaxed and watched some more football.
Monday was clean up day and we worked on the Mothership. Doris worked inside and I worked on the front cap and windows. It's been hard keeping her looking good with all of this rain.
Tomorrow we head for a two night stop in Woodland, PA. That's about half-way to where we will be staying while we visit Misty and her husband, Gary, near Washington, DC.
