Sep 3, 2013 - Day 2 at Niagara

We were glad we'd done the Maid of the Mist yesterday when we saw how cloudy this day was. After breakfast at the hotel, we headed over to the Canadian side to get the view from there. Driving across the Rainbow Bridge was a breeze on the way over, but wow! An hour later when we tried to head back it was unreal what a line-up it was to get back into the states. A trolley ride around the park was our next adventure. The $2 trolley includes some great narrative all about the Niagara Park. We got off at Goat Island, and walked down to Luna...

Sep 2, 2013 - Niagara Falls, New York

We arrived at our next important destination about noon - Niagara Falls, NY. I had been here twice before, but the last time was with 5 kids,so this trip was definitely going to be different than that one! The day had been very overcast with occasional showers, but soon as we got to the falls the sun came out! My top priority was to do the Maid of the Mist boat trip, so we headed straight there before the clouds could decide to return. What an adventure that was! We were at the very front of the boat and got soaked, but the view of the...

Eastern Canada, 2013

Aug 9, 2013 - Canadian Niagara Falls

We woke to a wet, chilly morning. After last night's fiasco in trying to get over the bridge into Canada, we decided to meet at 9:00, to try to get across before the crowds, which is exactly what we did. We flew over the Rainbow Bridge and through the border without one delay. This was the first time the Amatos had ever been to Canada and Karissa's first time out of the United States. We did a quick drive to see the falls, WOW! the view really is much better from the Canadian side and the kids were pretty excited to see all the amusements...

Aug 8, 2013 - Lake Ontario

We met up with Jess, Chris and the grandkids by 9:30, after a night of thunderstorms and rain. We headed over to view Niagara Falls, a first for Jess and Chris. It was a pretty cloudy, windy day, so the falls were misty, but the crowds were at a minimum, which was great for a tour on the Maid of the Mist. Joshua joined his parents on the ride. Karrisa chose to stay with us as she wasn't interested in getting wet. They had a great soaking ride. Then we all walked over to Goat Island, which was a nice change from last year, when we took a...

Aug 7, 2013 - Meet up with the Amatos

Boy did it pour last night, into this morning, thunderstorms and all. Our last day in Canada and it has to be a rainy drive. We will cross back over into the United States at Lewiston NY this afternoon. Jess and her family were planning to leave NH at 6:00 this morning. They have a 9-hour drive ahead of them. We hope the weather is better for them coming from the east. We all arrived at the KOA in Niagara Falls within an hour of each other. After we are all settled in, us at our site and the Amatos in their camping lodge, we enjoy the rest...

Aug 1, 2013 - First update to friends and family

Well, this is my first time making an entry...so hope all works as planned. Glenn and I drove through NY state on 7/30 and 7/31. Beautiful weather and scenery. We passed through one rural area after another, with an occasional city on the horizon. Spent our first night at Villages at Turning Stone RV & Casino. Spent a few bucks at the slots and then off to Niagara Falls. Weather questionable for today, so we went on a guided tour last night from 5:30 to 10:30. Had a wonderful time and learned a great deal about the area that we never would...

Jul 29, 2013 - New York / Niagara Falls

We arrived in New Jersey to cooler temps. It was wonderful to actually wear a sweatshirt! We just relaxed for a few days because Kathie was not feeling well. Then we took a day and rode the train into Penn Station. (Manhattan) We thought a Saturday would be the best day to visit. Boy were we mistaken. The train was crowded, the station was crowded, the subways were crowded. We went to visit the 911 memorial. It was nice but a very long and crowded tour. Then we took a boat ride over to Liberty Island. Again, very very crowded. The tour cost...

2013 Motorhome trip

Jul 18, 2013 - Batter Up!!!

Today was a travel day, leaving Niagara and landing in Pulaski. As most of you are aware, Bob, at a point in his life when he was quite young, played professional baseball. One of the cities he played in was Newark, NY. Since this city was sort of on our way to Ottawa, we made a short detour so Bob could reminisce. The attached pictures are of the ball park he played in. There was a nice man who let him into the locker room he used to use. Bob was happy to see although it has been expanded, it was exactly as he had remembered it. Including...

UP, UP and AWAY!

Jul 17, 2013 - Niagara Falls

We spent the last two days at Niagara Falls. Absolutely beautiful! Today we boarded the Maid of the Mist, put on our blue ponchos and braved the falls. The boat makes a round-trip into the frothing waters beneath the American Falls(US side) and Horseshoe Falls (Canadian side). Niagara Falls is America's oldest state park. 3,160 tons of water flows over the Falls every second. That's 75,750 gallons of water per second over the American and Bridal Veil Falls and 681,750 gallons per second over the Horseshoe Falls. The water falls at 32 feet...

Jun 12, 2013 - Playing Tourist at Niagara Falls

A Niagara falls and Buffalo Military Park and Museum tourist day! See photos. We also enjoyed a late lunch/early dinner at the least odd-looking restaurant in town, the Town Café in Grand Island. WOW, what a great surprise! We had the soup and salad bar, along with amazingly tasty and huge servings of haddock and potatoes!

Jun 11, 2013 - To Niagara Falls, NY, and some sightseeing in store!

Today's short 2 hour drive turned into something just over 3 hours because we were trying to avoid some of the toll roads. It was beautiful as we left Westfield and drove through the small townships with their old buildings and quaint, small town looks...a delightful decision, to that point. We realized too late that we should have moved over to the toll road as we got close to Buffalo. The first indicator was when we found ourselves on a small town road with only 2 inches in height to spare to get under a railroad underpass. Ooops...got...

Dec 27, 2012 - Niagara Falls

A much needed sleep in today, after such a big day yesterday. We did not manage to leave our hotel until after 12 midday. Today was all about seeing Niagara Falls, from the Canadian side, which was what everyone we spoke to, and everything we read, suggested. We set off in the snow, to cross the Canadian border on foot. It was about a 10 minute walk. We went through customs, and walked along the pathway to see the falls. The Canadian horseshoe fall was really quite magnificent, and very interesting to see. We were all very cold though, and...
