Here we are at the start of the walk......
|It looks like you could almost jump right in!|
There was a storm blowing around and it made for some interesting light. This picture makes it look like dusk but really it was just afternoon.

Between the Canadian side and the American side runs a bridge. It carries both cars and pedestrians across the border. It is called the Rainbow Bridge, due, I am sure, to the many rainbows cast by the spray of the falls. It was cloudy so we didn't see any. Needless to say, I had no plans to walk my dogs across a bridge called that!
|There was no way in hell I was walking my dogs across the Rainbow Bridge!|
|A nice photo-op!|
We wondered around a bit more and then headed back to the car. We drove around, through a park, past some interesting old buildings, etc. It was dinner time for the boys and they had had enough outdoor time to take a break.
After settling them back into the room, we headed out again! We did ALOT of walking on this trip!
The main tourist area on the Canadian side is like a beach town on steroids! There are endless ways to entertain yourself or your kids. Mirror mazes, glow in the dark indoor putt-putt golf, Dracula's Castle, a Ripley's Believe It or Not...and the list goes on! Here's an idea of what it looks like.....
|Look at that full moon!|
|A ginormous Frankenstein atop the Burger King!|
|A real man in thick gold paint. This 'Elvis' statue came alive if you paid him a tip.|
