After the lovely night at the best B&B of the whole trip, we carry on to Niagara Falls. But a few words about the Country Willows Bed & Breakfast in Niagara-on-the-Lakes. The biggest, best room, big screen TV, fresh baked cookies and a filled cold water pitcher on the bedside. The breakfast was huge, delicious, and lasted us all day. Lovely hosts, we truly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it. Our hosts Bill Devolin & Beverley Epp-Devolin were excellent. We did awaken to what we thought was rifle shots, but later found out that they have propane "booms" every few minutes to scare away the birds from the vineyards. Rise and shine!... read more

temp: 29degrees so today was a struggle, after getting to bed at 4:15am we had to be ready to catch the bus at 8am to go out to Niagara Falls. Welcome to Struggletown - population 4... me, mary, mel, trav (mark had left earlier) we got to sleep the 90minute drive out to Niagara Falls though so at least that was something. When we got there it was so cool, got the same feeling as when i saw the grand canyon, and times square, that wowwwwww feeling. It was so impressive, i know its only water, but its sooooo much water. we got off the bus and made our way to get out tickets to go on the boat called the 'maid of the mist'. on this they take u on the boat, give u ponchos ... read more

Rachel and I got back from a two day visit to Niagara Falls and Niagara-On-The-Lake last night so thought we would update you with how we got on! Niagara Falls... On Tuesday morning, bright and early, we hopped on a coach in Toronto which took us direct to Niagara Falls. The coach wasn't too bad and I passed the two hours by comandeering Rachel's Nintendo DS and playing CSI! Once in Niagara, we dropped our bags off at our hotel (we couldn't check in properly it was too early) and made our way down to the falls. From up at the side of the river, they look smaller than we both thought but the noise and spray was incredible. It felt like it was drizzling a good 500m from the falls because of the mist caused ... read more

On May 12,2010 our natural disasters class from Birchmount Park have a fun filled pack time at the Great Canadian Niagara Falls. The whole class was excited to get out of the school for the day and enjoy the great views and attractions the Fall provide. We left the school at around 8:00 a.m and planned to get there around 10:00 a.m. The bus ride there was alright, we played cards most of the time, when we were not sleeping. After a long bus ride we had finally reached the falls and almost right away we headed for the Maid of the Mist prepared to get wet. 100 stairs later we reach the maid of the mist and many were afraid of getting wet. Fortunately we got to wear ponchos so we didnt get to ... read more

With my grade 11 Natural Disasters class, we went on a day trip to Niagra Falls on Tuesday May 11th. My day stated off in a rush, when I was late getting to school and had to run to catch the bus. The ride there took forever because of rush hour traffic, but we entertainted our selves playing silly games like "I'm going on a picnick." As soon as we got there we haded to the Maid of the Mist. We were given huge blue ponchos to help keep us dry, from the rain and substantial amounts of mist. The boat took us right up to both the American and Canadian sides of the falls, and I was amazed at how big they were, and how much water falls off the edge every minute. After about ... read more

Not that long ago i went to Niagra falls with my grade 11 natural disasters class. We had to get the bus very early in the morning and on the way up i took a nap and played some cards with my buddies. We played President and at first i was janitor because I had no idea how to play but with the help of my friends I quickly learned how to play and became president shortly after. When we got to niagra falls we jumped aboard the maid of the mist. The workers gave us jackets so we wouldn't get soaked but when we got really close to the falls the waters was splashing around so much I was soaked. The ride back though was spent laughing it up and talking about how wet we ... read more

On Tuesday May 11th 2010 I went on a day trip to Niagara Falls with my natural disasters class. The bus ride there started off slow, but as rush hour passed we picked up speed and arrived in no time. When we arrived, our first activity was the Maid of the Mist boat tour. This was a very exciting experience because I had never been so close to the Falls before. Prior to going on the boat we all received humongous ponchos to protect ourselves from the rain and mist. I was fascinated how close the boat took all of the passengers to both the American and Canadian waterfalls. The view was unbelievable and i would definitely go on that tour again. After our boat tour we were supposed to go on a nature hike. ... read more

After watching the race we went and had a look at the whirlpool just up the river from the falls then we went back and had another look at the falls we sat in a park close by and just watched the water fall over it is mesmerising. That night we went out for dinner in the main street and had another look at the falls at night with the lights. ... read more
