We are very lucky to live so close to such a wonderful sight!

One of the kids wrote the following:

It took us six hours to get here.  It was very slow.  In Canada, things are very high.  We went to a very expensive restaurant.  $56.

We just sat about and took it easy!

June 24

We did Marineland .. it was fun VERY expensive.  DO NOT eat there -- take food.  They have bison burgers and paper fries -- both chewy as all get out.  On our return sites 160-175 area would be 100% better than the back sites!  This is a very big park and really nice while we were here.  We were (essentially) the only ones in the pool, playground, and at the things to see.  A super time to come!  We had no wait on just about anything.  Just super.  We did Ripley's Believe It or Not and Tussand's Museums.  At the falls we did the Spanish Aero Car, Table Rock Tunnels, the Great Gorge Adventure, and last and best the Maid of the Mist.  All are required for a proper tour of Niagra Falls.  They have ample parking and for a fee, the people movers.  For $49 and $23 for Maid of the Mist or total $71 Canadian you get all but the museums.  They were about $40 Canadian.  Easting is *_*VERY*_* expensive and the food is LOUSY!  Need to do:  (1) Eat at Skylon Towers $60.00 for all four of us @ early dinner buffet; (2) Explore Goat Island; (3) Walk the trails to the whirlpool; (4) the American side catwalk.  A week trip but all could be done in four days if you do not do the Welland Canal ... we did that, too.  Call for ship times and get a map and head for lock three.  But four days without Welland ... one to, one home, and two at.  The Falls at night ... eh ... but go see it if you never have.  Meg and Matt did super off the diving boards at the pool.  They have three pools ... one baby, one out, and one in.
