Vacation

Sorry for the hiatus, AGAIN. I went out of town a few weeks ago to see my best friend up in upstate New York. We had a great time. Got to visit Niagara Falls. I have to say it was a blast. It's a must see. We did the Cave of the Winds and Maid of the Mist. Two must do attractions. Next time I hope to go over on the Canadian side to see the falls from their point of view.

Also, while I was visiting her, we went up to Boldt Castle, which located on an island that is one of the Thousand Islands on the St Lawrence River. Lovely castle with a sweet story behind it. Boldt bought Heart Island and decided to build a castle on it for his wife. Before he could finish the castle, his wife passed away in January 1904. He left the island and never returned to finish it. For 73 years, the castle was left unfinished. Weather and vandals started to ruin the castle until the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority acquired it in 1977. Several millions of dollars have gone into restoring the castle on Heart Island.

I loved New York. The weather was perfect. I hated having to come back home to Georgia. The humidity needs to go now.

Here are a few pictures from Niagara Falls:

Have you ever been to Niagara Falls?
