Well we took off for Niagara Falls this morning after a short tour around the city where we went to Queens Park (woops already did that) and then the City Halls. Luckily Kris and I got to sit together and will do so for the remainder of the trip - no Amrican!!.
Niagara Falls was absolutely stunning and so was the day, brilliant sunshine. It really has this inviting quality to it (can sort of understand why some people want to go over in a barrel - not that I would go anywhere near that!!) like you want to just get closer and closer (well it did for me for those ho have been here and are thinking what drugs is she on!!) Firstly we stopped at the top of the Falls to take a few pix (hah, it's me talking here a few hundred). We then went down to board the Maid of the Mist - no wait at all...bonus. I thoroughly enjoyed the boat and we were warned we would get wet, but we must have have been lucky as there was nothing more than a light spray - mist you might say (ha, just cracked myself up, don't know why I found that funny - must be a little delirious).
After the boat we had time to grab some lunch and explore a little. It's a funny little town, a lot more to do than I had imagined. There are two casinos (went to one just for the loos) and a street that looks like a carnival. They also have a Hard Rock Cafe and Planet Hollywood - bizarre. Add then of course the larger hotel chains have commandeered the prime views over looking the falls.
Headed back to the city to have a quick break before heading off to dinner at CN tower.
CN Tower dinner was great. The views were amazing and got some great night shots from up high (553 metres high - posted more pix)
Off to Ottawa today - it's so early, we had to have our bags packed and ready to go down to the bus at 6.45, but can still chill a bit as not leaving until 7.45.
Oh we saw some people going in for red carpet event, but no famous people yet and it was the new Helen Mirren and Sam Worthington movie The Debt....damn!!

PS I'm quite enjoying Ushers new music at the moment, and why do Taylor Swift songs all sound the same??
