Niagara Falls Day Trip
It was much easier for me to get up at 6:00 am this past Sunday morning than it was a week ago.
We departed home shortly before 7 am en route Niagara Falls. This time we remembered our passports. We made two stops on our way to Niagara Falls. Our first stop was in Jamestown at Tim Horton’s for breakfast for Bob. I ate breakfast at home, before we left. Bob ordered coffee and bacon wraps for breakfast. Our second stop was also at Tim Horton’s. We stopped at the Tim Horton’s along Route 60 in Fredonia, NY. I bought steeped tea for me and donuts for Bob and me. I could have done without the apple fritter, and Bob could have done without the maple-dipped donut. Both of us are putting on weight and neither of us like it!
Upon arriving at Niagara Falls State Park, we parked our car and went to the Visitor Center to go to bathroom. After our bathroom run, we walked across the Rainbow Bridge into Canada.
We walked all the way to the brink of Horseshoe Falls. I didn’t take many pictures, while walking to Horseshoe Falls. In fact my first waterfall picture was taken at the brink of Horseshoe Falls.
I took lots of pictures, as we made our way back to New York.
Before crossing the Rainbow Bridge back into the US, we stopped at the duty free shop and purchased 2 liters of whiskey. A similar purchase was made the weekend of February 22.
We departed Niagara Falls around 11:30 am and stopped for lunch at Aunt Millie’s in Irving, NY. Bob ordered steak and eggs with home fries and rye toast. He really liked the Smoked Chipotle Tabasco Sauce that was on the table. (I purchased a bottle of that Tabasco Sauce for Bob at Walmart yesterday.) My lunch was Chicken Parmesan with a side order of spaghetti. A tossed salad and garlic toast accompanied my meal. We should have stopped there, eaten only our main entrees. But, no, we had to order dessert. Bob got a cinnamon roll for dessert. I got a Reese’s brownie/cookie.
After a couple bites, we boxed our desserts to be savored later. I paid dearly for that brownie/cookie, after savoring it later. I experienced an upset stomach and the worse heartburn.
With the exception of our sugary indulgences, it was a very good day. Even though it was a chilly Spring day, we enjoyed the sunshine and our walk in Canada.

Wow! Absolutely gorgeous photos of the falls! And it’s great to hear the process of seeing them too – I’m hoping to visit myself next year!
Were they loud?
The falls do roar. I think I am getting used to the sound, though. The roar doesn’t sound as loud as it used to.
Ah that’s really interesting! I love the sound of of waterfalls but have never heard one as big as these!
I’ sorry about the dessert-induced heart burn, but I’m glad you made the trip and got these beautiful photos to share with us. Your first picture of Horseshoe Falls is spectacular.
Wow, beautiful pics! Love the seagull at American Falls. You have a very fast trigger finger to catch such a great shot! I’m glad you had a great time
oops, sorry, meant to add I think sometimes they have a secret ingredient in brownies which is pepper and maybe that was in yours. I can no longer trust them and so just don’t eat them.
Your body (like mine) is not used to all of the sugary high-caloric food… IF I indulge and eat something I usually do not eat, I will suffer the consequences… Recently, we had a blizzard from the DQ. I loved it —but felt so sick LATER…. Oh Well…
Niagara Falls is a neat area… I figured you would go back soon after forgetting your passports the last time… Sounds like you can get whiskey at a much better price in Canada.
Happy Easter to you both.
