{WW} : Niagara



I spent my childhood afraid of riding the a boat at the base of Niagara Falls I finally had the courage to hope aboard the Maid of the Mist and see one of the most beautiful sights up close with the kiddos and my parents, turns out my it was my Dad's first time too! It was so nice to be showered by the mist of the great Niagara in the 95 degree heat that day. I loved growing up near the falls and I enjoy bringing my kids back every year.
















This was my favorite shot of the day, maybe next time we'll brave the Cave of the Winds like Marilyn Monroe did in the movie Niagara.

  1. Your pics always make me smile! I can hardly remember Niagra Falls- it's been such a long time ago that I went. Your blue raincoat pics are so fun. I'd never have thought to snap the garbage bins. And that first pic is breathtaking. Great mix of photos! Thanks for sharing and linking to Project Alicia.

    1. Thanks Alicia! Yours are always amazing, I can't wait till my internet is back up so I can catch up on reading everyone's blogs. (It's going on 5 weeks of no internet think might go crazy bored)

  2. I would love to go here one day. Although the bins packed with plastic macs made me a bit sad. All that waste created just so we silly humans can stay dry for a few minutes. I think they should stop it and put up a sign saying... a bit of water never hurt anyone whereas a lot of plastic waste hurts our beautiful fragile planet....instead. I know it is meant to be recyclable but even so the energy used to create these is huge and also, people where for them such a short while, why can't they be re-worn time and time again. *sigh

    1. Molly that is so true and such a shame to see all the waste in such a beautiful place. I didn't actually even wear one and the kiddos kept theirs, we live in the rainiest city in the country so they are now our emergency ponchos for the car, just thinking about how many are used a year is crazy sad and thanks for stopping over and sharing your thoughts. -Kate

  4. Beautiful shots!!

    I live in Buffalo and the maid of the mist holds a special place in my heart. My great uncle used to drive the boat. I have some awesome memories of riding it as a child; http://melaniescrafts.blogspot.com/2009/08/take-me-back-tuesday.html ...they used to have re-usable ponchos to wear back then. Sadly I have never taken my kids on the maid of the mist...not sure why.

    The cave of the winds is awesome. I did that a few years back with a guided tour and it was so much fun.

    BTW, thank you for sharing...my mom sent me your link to this post....it was her uncle who drove the boat. ;)
