Woke up to yet another lovely hot sunny morning…this is Joy and Colin’s Mexico room..
after a great breakfast and a laundry chore
Colin and I left for a couple of hours of sight seeing and what better way to do it!!!!
We drove past the hordes of tourists and the Falls knowing that I was coming back later on foot to check them out…instead we went on a tour of the area..
One of the smallest churches anywhere!!!
We then drove into Welland where 7 locks connect Lake Ontario and Erie and spent about 35 minutes watching this huge ship go through the lock I have to confess I had never seen anything quite like this before!!!
This boat was in the far lock and it was going down
You can just see the top of the boat in the near lock
There she goes!!!
It was fascinating just to stand and watch the power of the water, the genius of the engineering and how smoothly it all went.
Colin then dropped me off by the Falls he went home and I went walking and I must say my first impression of the Falls was not a good one
I thought wow I have seen much higher falls than these!!!
Yes I am joshing you here they are!!!!!
I am going to go on that boat tomorrow…..the Falls just take your breath away such force and power and to be able to get so close just awesome!!!!!
I like this sign Joy and Colin live here a suburb of Niagara…
We had a great evening some wonderful BBQ food and good company!!!
Gloria Joy`s sister, Joy, Colin Pauline and Mark, neighbours!!
It was a wonderful end to a very special day…..tomorrow Gloria has managed to get free passes for me to see some of the sights and attractions down by the Falls so I look forward to that.
Thanks for a great day Joy and Colin!!!
