Canada, Oh Canada | Part 2

Welcome back, travel bugs! If you need to catch up quick, here’s Part 1!

Sunday morning started with a beautiful sunrise over the falls! We’d left our curtains open to see the illuminated falls, plus we were high enough that privacy wasn’t an issue, so I woke up to this!

We had a 10:40am appointment to do “Journey Behind the Falls” so we got some Starbucks, browsed the gift store for future purchases, and then took an elevator down to the base of the falls!

Journey 2

This was so, so cool. We were behind the waterfall! It was chilly & wet but a pretty awesome experience with information cards and facts along the way. Also, the crowds were SO manageable and appreciated by this introvert!

Journey 1

My hubby & I love history and historic facts, so this was our cup of tea!

After our adventure we got some lunch, bought some souvenirs for our favorite dog sitter (THANK YOU!) and our favorite baby Elliot, and then headed back to the hotel to change clothes for our next adventure.

"You have to look at the phone or it'll look like you're looking up." So the smarty looked at the phone...
“You have to look at the phone or it’ll look like you’re looking up.” So the smart-aleck looked at the phone…

I purchased a Wonder Pass for a very discounted price before we left Ohio and it included access to Niagara’s Fury, Journey Behind the Falls, and a trip to the Butterfly Conservatory. We stopped at the latter on our way up north to the lake.

I hate bugs, but that was pretty neat. Next stop, Niagara-on-the-Lake!

We walked around, browsed some shops, and snacked on ice cream. Originally we planned on doing a ghost walk at 8pm, but we were tired and hungry so at 5pm we had dinner at Cork’s Winery and went back to the hotel to lounge and journal.

We left bright and early on Monday so K could get back to work. He’s a work-aholic fo sho’.

Happy Anniversary, Baby!
