After a restful night sleep and a great breakfast we anxiously awaited the arrival of my cousin David, his wife Zoe and their daughter Caitlin. They rang to let us know they were running late so after taking a few photos from our room 6 floors up with uninterrupted views of the falls we finished packing and headed downstairs to wait their arrival. As we hopped off the elevator we met the three Canadians, well bumped in to and nearly walked over the top of them LOL.
A warm and friendly greeting over and done with the 5 of us headed off to look at the Niagara Falls. The falls are simply stunning, on a par with the Grand Canyon for stunning beauty but they have the falls have their own uniqueness and beauty so the two are really worlds apart and to make comparisons would do either natural wonder any justice.
The 5 of us walked and talked like long lost friends, it is THE special memory that Vicki and I will both take home with us and treasure for the rest of our lives. David and Zoe are proud of Caitlin and so they should be. As

would my Uncle John and Aunty Bev, who are no longer with us but obviously remain very close to David, Zoe and Caitlin.
After walking around the falls for a while we headed for some refreshments and ended up at Starbucks. After looking through David and Zoe's collection of photos we headed to The Keg for lunch. We all enjoyed beautiful steaks with the breathtaking Niagara Falls pumping as our back drop for lunch. Service was fantastic, the food was better, the view was amazing but it was the company we were with that made it extra special.
After bidding a tearful farewell to David, Zoe and Caitlin we headed off with our driver Frank for Buffalo Airport enroute to the Big Apple - New York here we come!
