I opted to go on the Maid of the Mist boat ride to the Niagara Falls because Mom and the Hiatts had done so last year. It was a good experience. The falls are extremely loud when you're right under them and the mist that's pelting you in the face makes it impossible to keep your eyes open. It's kinda like putting your face in front of a shower head with the water on full spray.

After the boat ride I drove to the helipad where I got on a helicopter for a ride over the falls and the river basin. Although it seemed rather short, I was glad I took the ride. I was surprised at how long it took me to get my feet back on terra firma when I was back from the ride. I was equally surprised at how easy it was to get back into the United States. All I had to do was answer a few questions and they let me pass. I guess I look like an honest tourist. ; )

When I got to Palmyra I drove around to get the lay of the land and enjoyed a conversation with the parents of the owner of the Palmyra Inn, where we stayed.
