That time of the year when we plan for a Trip. Yes – It is Subhashree and my Birthday week last week and finally we visited Niagara after lot of planning. Decided we will not even think of driving from Minneapolis and booked flight tickets. Not much of direct flights and took the flight from Minneapolis on Thursday night and reached Buffalo by mid night (an hour ahead from Minneapolis).
By the time we settled down it was close to 1 AM. Slept till 8 AM in the morning and started our drive to see Niagara. Buying Discovery Pass ahead of time online helped to get the tickets in hand. Walked from the Visitor Ceter and entered the Niagara Park.
It was a majestic view of the falls in front of the eyes. Initially heard Friday, Saturday will be crowded as illumination happens at night. But the hot and humid weather kept many people out I think. There was no wait for us to get to the Observation center and go down in the lift and get into the boat for Maid of the Mist trip. I have to agree one thing – I have seen many pictures with blue coat over people but did not imagine how wet it would be. Until we experience, the wetness, it is hard to imagine. But in that trip the view of the falls was the best. Majestic water falls in full view and water from the falls making us wet. We did not have Visa to enter the Canada side and hence this was the best view.
We were back in the Park in the evening and Adhruth enjoyed walking and playing in the grass. Looking at the Color of the Sky during Sunset was an experience. It was followed by Illumination of the falls. Lights focussed on the walls made it colorful and words cannot explain the experience.
Next day, we did some shopping and had South Indian food in Chennai Express restaurant. Bisibele bath and the spicy Chilli pagoda brought tears in eyes :-). Our flight back to Minneapolis was on Sunday morning and that helped us to recover from quick trip to get ready for Monday.
Oh. Not to leave this out – second tooth is down for Adhruth in this trip 🙂
