Aaaah, Rest Day #5

I truly felt this was a day of rest. Woke up when my body had enough sleep. Nice, very nice.

My roommate, Barb, and I wandered around the streets for a while looking for a breakfast place. I finally asked some sanitation workers for suggestions. They sent us around the corner. Even with directions, we had trouble finding the place but we did. 

Oooh, pancakes with strawberries and blueberries, whipped cream, drizzled with caramel… Sorry, out of pancake mix – no waffles either. Ok, standard egg breakfast. 

Me: Can we have the check?

Waitress: Oh, thought you were staying in the motel and it would be charged to your room. I’ll get it for you.

Hand waitress two credit cards asking to have meal split evenly on each card.

Waitress comes back: Sorry, our card machine isn’t working, there’s an ATM over there.

Me: That’s ok, here’s a 50 (for a $31 tab)
Waitress:  I don’t have enough change. (Runs around restaurant trying to find to worker to help out. Finally gets her supervisor to get change. Supervisor gives me 10 $5 bills. I pay and we finally get on with our day. Whew!)

American Fall and Bridal Veil Fall viewed from Canada.

We walked over the bridge back into Canada to get photos. I did have to answer some questions of the agent but since I hadn’t done much except sleep since returning to the States, my mind was clear and sharp.

Lots of rocks at the base of the falls
Nice landscaping on the Canada side.
Just missed hearing this band. They were done playing but were posing for photos.
Horseshoe Fall with the mist

We did a lot of walking in the heat and humidity but saw the power and beauty of the water. There are many touristy things to do but I chose to wait and do those when Dan and I come visit together.

View at top of horseshoe fall. The water is not very deep here. I could see the bottom of the river.

After walking back to the US side (it cost 50¢!), I went back to my room for a nap.

Twice in two days I was welcomed to New York.

Yawn! Time to get up or I won’t be able to sleep tonight. Eventually I went out looking for food. I got a good walk in while wandering around hunting for an interesting restaurant. Guess I went in a big circle as I ended up where I’d been last night. Chain restaurant but you know what you’ll get.

Just as I was finishing my meal, Dale walked in so I invited him to sit at my table. We had a good conversation while I watched him eat. Glad he came in as I’m not sure I’d have done a direct walk to the hotel without him.

For mom, who loves flowers.

As I was typing this, I heard boom, boom, boom. What the??? Oh, its the fireworks show. We could see it from our room….cool.



female, married, in love, beautiful grown daughters, great and large extended family spread all over the US, enjoying my life, my favorite place to be is outside (unless its cold and wet).
