Niagara Falls

I had my first visitor!  My friend Lise, who I met in Ireland but was from France, was doing an internship in Montreal and came down to visit for a couple of days.  I was in school full time during the week, but we managed to get up to Niagara Falls and explore.  I hadn’t been up in years, and forgot how wonderful it is to be a tourist in your own neighbourhood.

We got the full tourist package, which I’ve never done in the past, and so we headed down to the rapids.

Our next stop was the Maid of the Mist! I couldn’t believe I had never been on it before. Seriously, I’m from here, shouldn’t I have been on it at some point?

We, of course, also had to see both falls from a regular height.

And we also got the view from behind and beside the falls.  I didn’t even know this was a thing.

It was wet and cold, but totally cool.  It was really nice to just be a tourist.
