More from Canada...

You may know that we were in Canada...
* hehehe *
I don't know how anybody could not know, 
as there sure has been a lot of chatter about it here on the blog.
Vacations are great, 
they provide for some amazing blog material.
There were a few random things we did, 
outside of gazing and drooling over the falls.

We went to see this show, it was very good.
The music was excellent, 
the costumes were very colorful and I knew "most" of the songs.
I'm not sure if that is a good thing?

The Aero Car...

travels a top the Whirlpool Rapids,
considered to be the wildest and most dangerous rapids in the world!

We went zip lining, yep, you read that right...
and if you think I was scared, think again,

one glance at this picture and you can see how excited I am!
Here I am, all hooked up and ready to go...
and not quite a flattering picture but I care not...
it was exhilarating, one of the fun-est things I have ever done!! 

We rode the Niagara Sky Wheel...

this was the breathtaking view of the falls from that ride at 175 feet.

We attended a magic show, 
Wild Magic, staring Greg Frewin
no pictures were allowed but trust me it was amazing.
If you ever have the opportunity to see one of his shows, go...
you will not be disappointed.

This is the gorgeous light fixture in the lobby of the hotel.

And there were fireworks, that we could see from our hotel room at 
The Embassy Suites
There is noting quite as fun as watching fireworks, in bed, in your p.j.'s.

I am home and I am exhausted, but in the best way possible!!


  1. Absolutely awesome photos. Any one that remembers the songs from "The Rock Around The Clock" era... is obvious from the Greatest Generation.

  2. Hello, Debbie! It looks like you had an action packed vacation. They are the best kind of trips, lots of wonderful photos. I am still shaking my head over the zip-lining over the white water. You are a lot braver than me, lol. Seeing the fireworks from your room sounds like a great end to the day. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  3. What fun....Loved the pictures, thanks for sharing.

  4. Wow, what a trip you had! I LOVE zip lining, which is probably an odd thing for someone who is claustrophobic, but I think it's because you move really quickly. If it went slowly, like a ski lift, I'd probably freak out. And watching fireworks from bed - that's perfect. Great photos of those falls. Glad you had a fun time.

  5. You are much braver than I will ever be.Good for you to have the courage to go zip lining.

  6. Well done you! i'd love to try the zip line but I'd be more scared riding the big wheel!

  7. I'm really enjoying your vacation! Y'all did some fun stuff, and might I add you & hubs must have nerves of steel. I'd NEVER ever zip line or the Sky Wheel. Oh well, maybe if I was your age. Let me think back: NOPE! :)

  8. You are so much more dare devil than me!!!
    Well done on doing the zip wire, and the Sky Wheel.

    I agree it is a breathtaking view of the falls ... fantastic.
    What a fabulous holiday

    All the best Jan

  9. you had a blast. so good to hear that!

  10. I am THRILLED over your great vacation!! I have visited there a few times myself but NEVER even THOUGHT about zip lining!!!
    YOU are my HERO!!!

  11. WOW!!! I'm so glad you had such a great time!!! Pictures are beautiful!!!

  12. You are one brave gal, I have to say, but what a view - yes, absolutely breathtaking! Love your pretty blouse, by the way :) Such fun - seeing the musical, magic show, riding the Ferris wheel and seeing fireworks! It all sounds wonderful! So glad to hear you had a great time! xx Karen

  13. I'm with your blouse. What a fun time you seemed to have had. It seems there were lots of exhilarating activities to fill your days. =)

  14. What a great vacation! Lots of fun things to do there. I'd love to zipline one day!

  15. Gosh that brings back childhood memmories of Bill Haley and his Comets & a 7" vinyl 45 Rock Around the Clock!
    You certainly know how to enjoy yourselves. What a great vacation :)

  16. I took my 9 visits before I'd ride on the Maid of the Mist, and after 10 visits, I still will not go on the cable car over the whirlpools. You are one brave cookie!!!!!

  17. Oh what fun!!! You are such a brave girl. I love all the different things you did -- some nature, some adventure, fireworks, a nice hotel and even some really good theater -- Yeah, I'm sure I'd know all those songs too.

  18. .. wow..... what a great holiday you're having.....
    I wouldn't be riding the wheel or doing zip lining.. you are so brave....
    I love your photos of the falls and rapids so much .... and that light fitting is amazing......
    ..... Barb xxxx

  19. So much fun! You are braver then I would be but wow that view of the falls would be worth being scared.

  20. You were in Canada. We were in the US! We're even!

  21. I really love this adventure. You did some very unique and exciting things. Wow, Zip lining; I don't think I could go there. Of course, I loved the photos of the scenery, especially the one with the hubby and the fun events you attended. I would have loved the play and the music.
    We are hoping after our mission to go to the falls on our way to Palmyra New York and maybe up closer to New Jersey. I would so like to meet you someday.
    Sending hugs your way!

  22. Fantastic views and I'm glad you went zip-lining! That had to be a blast!
