Travels - Niagara Falls

We just returned home from a fun week of travels,
which included driving 1600 miles through five states and Ontario,
four different afternoon tea experiences,
 and a  special reunion with my friend Nancy in PA.
~~ 
Visiting Niagara Falls was on AJ's travel bucket list.
The top photo was a view from the window of our
 room on the 19th floor at the Marriott Fallsview  for our three-night stay in
Niagara Falls, ON.
What a fabulous view to wake up to each morning!
We took a 5-hour tour which included the Journey Behind the Falls
tunnels leading to the falls.
My photos are limited due to the water spray from the falls.
The famous Maid of the Mist boat ride below was awesome!  
 We got wet again!
Can you see how close the boat is to the falls in the photo below?
Later in the day, we went up the Skylon Tower, as seen in this photo.
Views of the American Falls, including the Bridal Veil Falls.
A visit to the Butterfly Conservatory was included.
And, of course, a little souvenir shopping.
