One of the greatest wonders of the world is an hour away from
by car. I live in Hamilton . Hamilton
This magnificent wonder is
. It is one of the 7 wonders but
I’m very sure there are more. Niagara Falls
My parents would take my brother, sisters, and I, to
when I was young. We would
spend the day and have a picnic. Niagara Falls
Many times I’ve wondered where all that water came from, it never ends.
In the early 1920’s there was a shortage of water at the falls. It was during the winter and very cold. The lack of water somehow caused an ice bridge to form at the base of the falls. At first people enjoyed walking over this natural walkway, kids threw snowballs. The fun ended when it was declared unsafe.
Now in 2017 water continues to flow over the Canadian and American side.
For generations this constant supply has tumbled down, sometimes taking rocks with it.
The Maid of the Mist tour boat has taken thousands of tourists to the bottom of this beautiful sight. When I was a teenager a bunch of us took this ride and to this day I never tire of seeing it.
My son was born on December, 12, 1964. My husband and I and a couple we knew took our son when he was six weeks old, he wasn’t at all interested.
