Travel News: A Winter's Day Trip to Niagara Falls

January 15, 2018: On this cold winter's day my son, Michael and I spent my birthday at Niagara Falls. We drove to the Fallsview Casino Hotel for some comfortable underground parking. We walked around the complex to determine the best way to view the Falls.We spent about an hour walking to and fro the road to the Falls where we stopped to take pictures. We noticed that the Falls were only partially frozen and yet created dramatic views.

The pictures tell many beautiful stories that you can create as you view each picture.

We returned to the hotel for a delicious lunch and to warm-up before we ventured out again to be in awe of these partially frozen magnificent Niagara Falls

 This statute is situated in front of the stunning backdrop of snow-draped trees
across the road from the Canadian Niagara Falls.

It was late afternoon when we returned to the hotel to warm up and relax with a slice of chocolate birthday cake and a cup of tea. But before we left I tried my hand at the slot machine in the Casino and betted a small amount that I was willing to lose.  Instead I gained a healthy but much appreciated sum of winnings. Michael declared it was my birthday luck. He drove me home amidst snow flakes and traffic congestion in some parts.  It was an extraordinary and memorable day of a milestone birthday.
