More photos of Memorial Day Weekend and Niagara Falls. This is one of my favorite shots of the Falls. Don't know why, I just like it.
But this is another favorite. It looks like the Maid of the Mist is getting ready to sail right into the waterfall. It also looks like it's a cold, rainy day. It wasn't. It was a beautifully sunny day.
Niagara River. And another favorite picture. But then, would I post photos that weren't my favorite?
If there's no sea, just a lake and river, are these birds still called seagulls? I shall call him Jonathan.
Bridal Veil Falls.
Part of Horseshoe Falls. And, another favorite picture.
Some one's outfit happened to coordinate with the "free shoes" at Cave of the Winds. But after donning the yellow ponchos, fashion went out the window. Or down the falls.
There was the obligatory tourist ritual of handing expensive cameras to complete strangers and asking them to take your picture.
And then there were the shy "no pictures, please" tourists. Maybe he (or she?) is in The Witness Protection Program.
Pedestrian Bridge leading to Cave of the Winds at the base of Bridal Veil Falls. There really was no cave. At least none that we could enter.
This picture got out of order, but I'm too lazy to change things around.
Ben closely guarded the frisbee.
We didn't spend the entire weekend at Niagara Falls. Jenni is preparing strawberries for a chocolate fondue. Which, yum. The sink is shorter than hers, thus that bizarre straddle thing going on. Either that or she's found the long lost 6th ballet position.
Aren't they sweet???
The sisters strike a similar pose during a game of washers with their hubbies.
If she wasn't Meghan, she wouldn't be worrying. She's probably worrying that this picture is also out of order. Oh well.
The guys played video games in the Man Cave for 4 hours. We should have used the opportunity to go shoe shopping at the Niagara Falls outlet mall.
Then I flew back home to St. Louis, getting my flight changed several times due to delays. Because I was had a Business Select ticket, I got two free drink coupons every time there was a change to my itinerary. Which went unused since I had morning flights and was going to work straight from the airport. Oh well, another day, another flight.
Yes, I know these aren't roses. They are glass bulbs by Chihuly from the Glass in the Garden exhibit.
...are also these geese. Same photo, just cropped differently. I think I like the top picture better.
It rained that evening, but not enough to spoil the view.
I decided to get a little artsy fartsy with this picture of Kathy walking across the foot bridge.
But all of these pictures of the beautiful grounds at the Garden reminds me that I need to put away the computer and go work in my garden. After all of the rain, the weeds are overtaking the lettuce and spinach.
