New York to Niagara

The train from New York was fully sold out but everyone who had a ticket had a seat unlike the British railways!!  The Fall colours along the Hudson valley were unbelievable and the train chugged along no hurry.

New York 339

We arrived at Niagara station to find Taxi’s waiting for us right on the platform how about that for service!  Although the Niagara American falls are so beautiful it is best to view them from the Canadian side.

This was all very easy just show your passport and away you go foot path to Canada over the Rainbow bridge

American Holiday (Fuji) 055

American Holiday (Fuji) 097

This is Horseshoe Falls, we took the little boat Maid of the Mist right up to the base of the falls it was such and exhilarating ride

American Holiday (Fuji) 105

This was a Hydro Electric Power Station above the fallsAmerican Holiday (Fuji) 092 and we saw lots of rainbows like this one, also the birds seemed to love the water resting on near by rocks and getting covered in spray.  That evening we went to the Syklon Tower which has a revolving restaurant at the top which gave us a panoramic night view of the falls as the coloured lights played on them changing them  from Red to Blue to Green etc, a lovely meal (but we nearly had to mortgage the house when we got the bill!!).    Day two at Niagara the weather Niagara Falls and The Berkshires 198American Holiday (Fuji) 121

was not so good, we took the people mover to the Botanic gardens and visited the butterfly conservatory, a wonderful place to observe the butterflies and a paradise for photographers.  We had a pass for the People Mover so we took the full journey along side the river Niagara makingAmerican Holiday (Fuji) 080 the most of the the view from the warmth and comfort of the bus.   The next stop was to the tunnels where  we could go down right behind the water curtain and right along side.

For me Niagara was a highlight of the holiday I have wanted to visit this place since I was a child and I am so glad we made it here, I recommend it to everyone.  Two days is sufficient time to see it all.

Next stop Boston where we pick up a car and travel into Massachusetts to witness the spectacular  colours of New England in the fall.

So say with me folks more to come
