Niagara Falls, ON

I hosted a Single Horizons event today to Niagara Falls ... I had a busload of 55 people.

We stopped at Magnotta Winery in Beamsville for a while for some wine testing. Then we were off to Niagara Falls.

Gord and I played a bit of Roulette. Rather than playing the tables where there is a $15 per round minimum, we played on a machine that has a $2 per round minimum. I put $30 in the machine with the intent of playing 15 rounds and quitting. My number came up the first round so I won $72 right away! I played just a couple more rounds before cashing out at $90 ... I was happy with my $60 profit.

Gord and I had a late lunch at Taco 'n Tequila. We've had drinks there in the past but this is the first time we've eaten there.
We both had chicken chimichangas ... there were delicious!

Chia Kitty enjoyed a Corona.

Here's Gord as we were leaving.

We did the SkyWheel.

From the SkyWheel, there are some great views of the Canadian side ...

And the U.S. side ...

Then we walked to the Falls. Here's the Canadian side.

Chia Kitty had a good view.

Here are Gord and Chia Kitty.

As we were walking, this little girl ran past us crying, obviously lost. It was great the way that people stopped to help her. Here they are handing her over to a cop.

We got closer to the Falls. There's the Maid of the Mist.

We took the incline train back to the casino to catch the bus home.

This feels weird to be seeing photos of Niagara Falls as I just finished reading Whirlpool by Jane Urquahrt last night, Niagara Falls in 1889 - that town sure has changed a lot since then. ;-)
