I haven’t been doing much crafting on this trip, but I have been doing some cool things. On Wednesday I went to Niagara Falls with my brother, mother, and grandmother. It was super fun and we got really close to the falls. We parked on Goat Island, where we saw the Tesla Memorial and Horseshoe Falls:

Then we went of the “Cave of the Winds Tour”. It’s a bunch of stairs and platforms next to the American Falls. Here’s what it looks like from above:

Not too bad, right? A little mist. So we get to climbing (they give you ponchos; my brother and I elected not to wear ours) and there’s like, a lovely little stream coming down some rocks:

So we climb some more stairs and reach something called the Hurricane Deck:

It was aptly named. We got thoroughly drenched with Niagara river water. Completely saturated.

We went to the Three Sisters Islands, three tiny islands that used to be underwater. You can get right up close to the river:

So close, in fact, that I could put my toe in the water (it was cold):

We also stared longingly across the river to Canada, where you now need a passport to get to:

We watched the traffic on the Rainbow Bridge to Asgard Canada (that is its actual name):

I hear today is Canada, so three cheers. I’ll drink to that.
