Taking Becky to Niagara Falls

Taking Becky to Niagara Falls

We’re taking Becky to Niagara Falls today.  I went to my networking meeting and then we headed off to the falls.  We’re taking I-90 because it’s faster than NY SR 31.

When we got the Niagara Falls, we were ready to eat again.  We found a tiny diner where ate outside enjoying this WARM day.

Niagara and Passports

We found a parking spot right by the Rainbow Bridge.  I saw a Customs Agent and yelled through the fence and asked about Elizabethe’s passport.  He said, “No problem.”

We walked across the bridge, but the heat about did Elizabethe in.  We managed to get to the Sheraton Hotel’s lobby where she said she’d wait for us to see the falls.

The Falls

The falls were beautiful.  It was fairly clear, but very hot and sticky.  Beck and I walked down to the bring of Horseshoe Falls.

It was a great day for photographing the falls because it was clear (vs raining).

USA Side

We headed back to the Sheraton and met up with Elizabethe and walked back across the Rainbow Bridge.  Once on the USA side we purchased tram passes and road the tram down to Horseshoe Falls.

When we were all done, we piled in the car and drove to Kirtland.  We stopped at the Angola Rest Stop for dinner.  That is the best rest stop on I-90 in New York.  They have a great selection of places to eat.  We also picked up a box of cinnamon rolls for dessert.

It was quite late when we arrived at the motel.

Kirtland tomorrow.
