Niagara Falls

Seeing Niagara Falls was just the icing on the cake! It was a great way to end a busy week of travelling and I captured some of the best memories. I remember adding the falls to my visit list and it was one of few that I thought 'not sure I'll see that' because it isn't near to anything else I want to see. I am so glad that I get to tick it off and savour what I saw.

One of my best memories from visiting the falls was on our first night we actually stayed next to the falls before our onward travels. We could see glimpses of "Niagara Falls" from our hotel and Lotte and I made a concerted effort not to look at it. We knew we would be seeing it a week later and wanted to have the whoa factor then! It wasn't until we arrived back at the end of our week away that we realised we were averting our eyes away from the America Falls!!! - which by the way isn't a patch on what Niagara Falls has to offer!

I wish I could describe Niagara Falls but it is so difficult. It's just so powerful and very breath taking. There is a long promenade you walk along to get right near the mouth of it. You capture totally different views as you walk towards the start of it. I swear all Lotte and I said was 'how amazing' or 'it's crazy.' The best bit was the boat ride on the Hornblower! From wearing our sexy red plastic ponchos to seeing it in front of you was just the best. Once you get right up close you realise how powerful mother nature is! It was wet, windy and so loud. it was like being in the best storm! I have shown a few photos to friends and colleagues and I kept getting told 'it looks like a stormy day.' And it wasn't, in fact it was a lovely sunny day but due to the force of the water there is almost like a permanent rain cloud.

As for Niagara itself it is a little tacky! It's full of slot machines, arcades and nick knack shops which I'm not really in to but the falls itself I totally recommend!

Beautiful video, thanks for sharing. Niagara is on my 'must do' list too, and this has made me want to go even more.
