Sep 24, 2013 - Niagara Falls

(Sandi writing) We have awakened to clear, sunny skies, even though the temperature is about 55 degrees. We are going back to the falls this morning after checking out of our motel. I wanted everyone to know that we probably won't have internet access for a couple of days, so if you don't see a posting, don't worry, we are fine and are having fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sep 23, 2013 - Toledo, OH to Cleveland, OH and Niagara Falls, NY

(Sandi writing) We had a wonderful time at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum. The Rolling Stones have a special exhibit through March 2014. We were lucky to find Angie's Soul Cafe near the museum where we had a great lunch! About 4 hours later, we arrived at Niagara Falls. We walked to the falls tonight to catch them lit, but our timing was off. So, no night pictures on this trip. We will go back in the morning and will surely share some pictures. By the way, I haven't figured out the correct use of the maps...it shows that we crossed...

Sep 17, 2013 - Day 10

Yesterday was cloudy, drippy, and chilly so we stayed "in" and spent the day reading and relaxing. Today was the exact opposite weather-wise: sunny and cloudless. We drove to the Canadian side to see the falls from there. The short route, the Rainbow Bridge, was closed for some sort of disaster drill so we took the long route and wound along the parkway and gorgeous houses that line the river on the Canadian side. Once we got to the falls, the wind was coming from the American side so we (and everybody else) got drenched walking through the...

Sep 15, 2013 - Day 8

We shuffled off to Buffalo this morning and actually ended up in Niagara Falls (OK, it's a suburb of Buffalo). Got situated in a nice KOA on Grand Island. Then we went off to the American side of Niagara Falls. It was a bit gray and cloudy so our pictures look a little gloomy but the falls are pretty spectacular. I'm told the Canadian side -- tomorrow's itinerary -- is even more amazing. We came back "home" and had pizza while we watched the Broncos beat the Giants. A great day all around.

New England 2013

Sep 5, 2013 - Niagara Falls, Ny 9-5 thru 9-7

9-5-2013 left Detroit Michigan, drove south to Toledo, Ohio and then east thru Pennsylvania and arrived in Niagara Falls, NY. 4 states in one day, our first and second toll roads ($26 total - so not used to paying to drive on a road, we are so fortunate in the NW). We have logged a total of 3552 miles and 12 states in 4 weeks. Niagara Falls is SPECTACULAR! We went to the Cave of the Winds - beneath the American Falls and up to Hurricane Deck. The rain ponchos and sandals they provide are not optional - we were surrounded by thundering...

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...
