and we're back!

Wow, that's a lot of water....yep...a lot hmmmm
This was the view from our room in Niagara Falls. It was beautiful! I took this picture this morning when we woke up...at like 6:30am!!!! Yes!!!! On a day that we could have slept in!!! Don't worry though, I was up for about an hour, then declared it time for a nap...8am and I'd already gotten in a 1/2hr nap...how's that for efficient :-P
We ended up taking the whole tour thing, I've never done that before, but it seemed the easiest way to make sure that we didn't waste all our time there deciding what to do. The butterfly conservatory was by far my favourite. Sorry, no picture of that illusive blue butterfly, who knew that they folded up they're wings to reveal plain old brown when they landed....no wonder! I bought a postcard of it on the way out! These are a few of the butterflies that I could ACTUALLY get a picture of....



After the butterfly conservatory we stopped at the aviary. I think this is my favourite picture from there, I did get a few decent bird pictures....but I was actually more impressed with the overall atmosphere and feel of the place than I was with any particular bird...
And here's my sweetums with a gigantic wooden moose at our lunch stop!
After lunch we saw the IMAX, and then went up the Skylon tower....it was winnndy...but a fabulous view of the falls...yup...that's me, being nearly blown right off the edge....ha!
And back in our room after a long day of fun, here's my sweetums doing what he loves most.
And same for me, ....working on my sweater....now...if only I could have figured out how to knit in that hot tub without getting my yarn all soggy :-)
