On Wednesday we packed up and headed west, then veered North to catch a quick glance at the America side of the falls and get on the Maid of the Mist. My mother in law has never been, so on our way to OH. We took a side trip to this enchanting place to explore the beauty with her. She had booked a night locally with plans to enjoy the casino and stop at the Outlets on her way home. We would be heading West to our temporary home at Castaway Bay in Sandusky OH for some new fun.
Remembering a few years back when we stood in line for hours to take our turn on the Maid of the Mist, we planned carefully to break out of our hometown early and arrive just about the time everything opened. We timed it perfectly. Not nearly as many crowds and certainly no lines,
The Bridal falls sure are flowing today. Lots of mist rising up over those deadly rocks below. No matter how many times I have viewed this aggressive waterway, I still never seemed to be out of awe. Incredible.
Diane is already for the wetness.
Once off the boat we took in some more of the American Falls before heading to the Casino.
We had left our car in the falls parking lot so after some time in the Casino and a full lunch, we walked back to the falls. On our way we stopped at this little park.
Pooped but ready for some fun.
