If you haven't read the first part of my Niagara Falls post, please go back to the previous post to start from the beginning. (I am having technical difficulty with Weebly, and accidentally published the blog before it was completed.) When I left off, we were just leaving the Table Rock Visitor's Center.
The time in the welcome center afforded us a bit of a warm-up, and now with the sun rapidly going down we made our way back to the van. Up the hill on the Canadian side we found a Denny's Restaurant that was open. Some got breakfast, and some got dinner. And Larry got a free Grand Slam for his birthday!
It was totally dark when we headed back down the hill to see the lights on the falls. Lou and I have to admit to staying in the van -- it was -6 degrees by that time! Tom and Larry hopped out and crossed the main road to shoot a few pictures of the colored lights on the falls.
Tom opted for a quick picture with his phone.
Larry opted for his big camera, lens, and tripod . . . and got this incredible picture!
Returning to the van the guys gave Lou and I a nice, slow drive along the main drag so we could also see the lights. As we crossed back into the USA over the Rainbow Bridge, we could still see the breathtaking sight. Shortly, we were glad to reach the hotel room and the hot showers.
Here are some parting shot of our afternoon at the frozen Niagara Falls.
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
