We made an unexpected stop this morning to watch a couple ships navigate part of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Kevin and the kids went to the locks and watched as the ships went through. It was apparently awesome!
We spent the rest of the day touring Niagara Falls from both the Canadian side and American side. The view definitely is the best from the Canadian side. We went on a boat ride called the Maid of the Mist which takes you to the bottom of the Falls. Everyone wears a blue poncho that they provide and there's a reason why. It felt like we were in a hurricane when we entered the middle of the horseshoe
We did a lot of walking today and last night so we were pretty beat by the end of the day. We had planned on staying at the Falls only until noon today, but it was after 5:00 before we left. Took longer to see both sides than we thought. So Tom and I went into a few more shops and Darren and Kevin headed back to get the RV and pick us up. Kevin and Darren had an "incident" on their way to pick us up. The RV was parked along a curb with tour buses in front and behind. As he pulled out of the space turning to miss the tour bus in front, the rear of the RV swung over the curb and caught the bottom of a street sign, pulling apart the back of the RV. They picked up the pieces, strapped it together, and came to pick us up. Will have to fix it when we get home.
It has been a fabulous trip! See you soon!
(Kevin) We got a late start from Niagara Falls since we spent most of the day sightseeing. We got on the road at about 8:15pm and headed towards Cooperstown. We stopped at a Wal-Mart at 11:20pm for a little shuteye. We will have a 45 minute ride in the morning to get to the MLB Hall of Fame.
