Niagara

Yesterday we headed off to Niagara Falls. Coming from such an arid country as Australia the volume of water coming over Niagara totally blew us away. We enjoyed the boat ride under the falls first, complete with very becoming plastic ponchos (for which we were very grateful) and then a trip above Horseshoe Bay to see the incredible volume of water above the falls. After lunch it was off to one of the many local wineries for some wine tasting. We finished our tour with a look around the picturesque town of Niagara on the Lake. So beautiful. Here are a few pics from our day - Image

Our travels

Usually I keep my blog very craft related but you will not see much craft on here in the coming weeks as we spend some time seeing the world instead. So as a means of keeping up with those family and friends who have not got facebook I will document our travels on here and hopefully you will all enjoy a peak into our travel lives. Our journey began on June 14 with our flight to Las Vegas. Wow it certainly is a feast for the senses. A lot of fun for all. So many weird and wonderful people to check out. We went to The Beatles Cirque de Soleil show " Love" while in Vegas and it was absolutely spectacular. Another highlight was our helicopter flight over The Grand Canyon. I was freaking out about it but I'm so glad we did it as it was just a marvellous way to see such an amazing natural wonder. Here's a few pics from our time in Vegas ... Image

Seeing our ship from different angles never ceased to amaze us.....

It was the most amazing holiday and I am so very happy to be able to say that because I seriously had to face my fears getting on that ship - yes I've seen the movie "Titanic" and I have in the past been very fearful of cruising but Mum "harrassed" me over many years until I finally gave in....and I'm so glad I did - I felt as safe as houses and we were so very well looked after it was a dream vacation :-)))

And now it's back to reality!!!! ....and washing and cooking - oh lord I'll actually have to get off my butt and cook dinner tonight - what a shock that will be - not to mention it won't be a 3 course meal as we've come accustomed to for the last 7 nights.
