Forget Florida, we went to Niagara Falls for Spring Break
Niagara Falls is still partly frozen. There is no maid of the mist running, because the river is partially frozen over.
Canadians don't call it spring break. They call it March break.
This week is March break and there is no school. Actually, there isn’t much anything this week, because I think everyone is in Florida. When you get to the Canadian border you will see a sign saying “not home – back in 5 days”.
We took a day trip with the kids to Niagara Falls yesterday. Just 70 miles, and a little over an hour from home. Kids went to Ripley’s Believe it or not, Crystal Caves mirror maze, and several other kitsch places.
The falls are always awesome, wet and noisy. When we were near Horseshoe Falls the mist was so heavy that you could see it floating around along the road and sidewalk.
Another fun day.
