The Little Road Trip: Niagara Falls

The was no Big Road Trip on this summer's schedule, but we did take a Little Road Trip. Monique and I were headed back to Glens Falls for an August wedding, so we decided to pack Malcolm and Henry along with us to look at some of New York, both upstate and the city.

The vacationing started with a nighttime arrival on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

The next morning saw us breakfasting poolside on donuts at the luxurious Falcon Inn in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Then it was off to the Falls.

Gosh, that boat looked like it was having a good time. We decided to take a little ride.

Alas, it was a bit damp under the Falls, so we don't really have any pictures of our ride on the Hornblower Cruise, the Canadian equivalent of the famed "Maid of the Mist." You'll have to take our word for it that it was spectacular and lots of fun.

After our ride under the Falls? Flowers!

Then we took the funicular up the hill for a little lunch.

Then back in the Jag and off to the USA. Farewell, Niagara Falls. We're moving on to the Adirondacks!


  1. Hey, nice selection of photos! I'm glad the morning breeze that had the mists coming right at us fades as the day advanced so we could get nice views of the falls.

  2. Agree, very nice photos. But seeing you next to two very tall boys surprises me and conflicts with my image of you as the tall one among my daughters...
