Photos of the falls on the way to the Maid of the Mist.
| For our second wedding anniversary, we
stayed at the historic Red
Coach Inn in Niagara Falls (the honeymoon capital of the world...
at least in the 1950s).
| Our hotel was alongside the
river, just a few blocks before the
| We started our sight seeing
adventure with the historic Maid of the Mist
boat tour (and got very wet, of course!)
|A view of the American Falls from the Maid of the Mist.|
These were taken while on the Maid of the Mist.
|Not too wet............ yet!!!!|
|The American Falls and the smaller Bridal Veil Falls next to it.|
| We both liked the American Falls due to the
abundance of rocks at the
bottom and the beautiful way that the water flowed around them.

|A closer view of Bridal Veil Falls, the rocks and the Cave of the Winds tour.|

|Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.|
| A 7-year-old boy survived a fall off Horseshoe
Falls in a 1960 boating
accident and a man who went over the falls as a stunt in 2003 was fined
$10,000. Can we say lucky???
| We learned all about the history of "dumb" people
going over the falls in
barrels and walking tightropes across the falls at the DareDevil Muesuem.
More shots from around the falls.
|A view of the top of Horseshoe Falls from the American side. Pretty impressive!|
|A view of Goat Island and the entrance to Cave of the Winds.|
|The Maid of the Mist (once enjoyed by none other than Marilyn Monroe).|
|Chris stopping for a photo on the observation deck.|
The Cave of the Winds tour. There isn't actually a cave anymore.
| This was Nina's favorite tour because you get to get up
close and personal
with Bridal Veil Falls.
|The mist was fantastic!!!|
|Posing in our lovely yellow souvenir rain ponchos.|
|Nina becoming one with the falls....|
|Every year, they rebuild the wooden planks that people walk on... yikes!|
|A truly stunning photo of the rocks.|
|This maybe a "framer."|
|The infamous Hurricane Deck.|
|Lots and lots of fun and again......... wet!!!!|
|Ahhhhhh.... the seagulls.|
