Four Days…Sometimes It’s Enough

Posted By

Once I managed to escape the clutches of Canadian and US authorities, I was able to just enjoy the Falls.  I love rushing water:  ocean waves, waterfalls, rapids, etc.

There’s something primal for me about that much water moving so fast.

The idea that we could stand two feet from the water’s edge and no more than three feet from the top of the Falls – fascinating.  The rail was nothing, really.  Nothing to stop you if you really wanted to do it.

We wandered around a little, but we didn’t go on the Maid of the Mist.  The line was long, and we’d both been on it before (not together).  It was nice to watch from the edges – all those people getting soaked.

So, gambling (Thunder) and waterfalls (Tempest).  The train took us there and back without very much trouble and for just a little amount of money.  Not a bad deal.

You can see the railing - I'm about 18 inches from the edge of the water in front of me. That frothy stuff on the left (less than 3 feet away)? The top of the Falls!
