Niagara Falls Vacation - Part 2

Maid of the Mist

One of the things that was at the top of my to do list was partaking in the Maid of the Mist. The Maid of the Mist is a 20 minute boat ride along the bottom of the falls. The falls are absolutely breathtaking and seeing them up close is even more breathtaking.
Don't let the name Maid of the Mist fool you though because it was no mist. We were drenched after our 20 minute ride. They do give you rain ponchos (pretty much a plastic bag) to wear but they just don't do much justice. Even though we got drenched, it was so much fun!

I wasn't for sure how Tyler was going to like it, because he hates it when wind and rain hit his face. But we were going to try it anyways. I'm so glad we did because he LOVED it. It may have been because he had a big trash bag over him. And let me tell you he loves trash bags at least when you shake them.

The maid of the mist was so much fun! Now you know it's a true found friendship when a bunch of people don't even care that they let their appearances got and model the wet-dog look for the rest of the day. :)

That should be "go", not "got".

And we both must have been reading each other's blogs at the same time this evening. :)

You got some great shots of the falls!!

The Maid of the Mist was spectacular. And you are right, it is hardly mist. When you are right up in it it feels like a hurricane!

I am so, so glad that we all got to meet and become 'real life' friends. It really was like we had all known eachother forever.

I can't wait til we get to do this again!
