KLAMS 2012 - June 16th

Susan and I were up early and no one was stirring in the other room.  I have to have something on my stomach to take my medicine so we left a note and headed to the hotel cafe for some toast and coffee.  When we returned they were beginning to stir....but we had missed the Space Ship restaurants 1st Early Bird special.  We headed to IHOP for breakfast and for the first time in my life....after waiting for a table for 30 minutes....and 20 more minutes with no acknowledgement of our existance...we walked out and headed to the Space Ship for the 2nd 4.49 Early Bird Special.  It was worth it. It was worth it...we were seated immediately and in less than 5 minutes had coffee, had ordered, and were chatting about the days plans.  We hit an outlet across from our hotel and I bought an awesome new pair of shoes.....they would bite me in the but later in the day.  Today we are going to Toronto.  We took the hour drive to Toronto on the QEW and enjoyed the scenery again.  Once in Toronto it was time to find food again..we were planning on eating on a boat...but it was closed.  That is Flat Mary situated between Amanda and Linda.
We ended up eating lunch at a sports bar and then we decided to hop on a big red bus sightseeing tour.  That is always the best way to see the most of a town. There was a small issue with this...three of us paid...two didn't....two got off and got the car and met us at Casa Loma stop.  It was fun learning about the history of Canada, Toronto, music, etc. We saw the CN tower - the world's largest tower, Bata shoe museum - 12,000+ pairs of shoes from all over the world, Hockey Hall of Fame, St Lawrence Market, The Distillery, Railway Museum, Eaton Center, dundas Square, Harbourfront Center, Theater District, Club district, Chinatown, Kensington Market, Bloor-Yorkville, Queen's Park.  The tour guides were excellant.  Are you old enough that you can remember Joni Mitchell's song about "paving paradise and putting up a parking lot? "....well if you can....we saw where she wrote the song...and learned what it was written about.  I love these kinds of bus tours because you can hop off and on at any of their stops. 

We headed back to Niagara Falls and ate dinner at Johnny Rockets on the ground floor of the casino.  Tonight we want to see the lights on the falls.  I bought a red rolling suitcase to use to go home.  We drove by the falls one more time and headed back to the hotel, packed up what we did not need for tomorrow, I nursed a nasty blister, and believe me....tonight sleep was welcome.  I can't remember when I have been so tired.  Tomorrow we head back to reality and the states.

I had no idea they light the falls up at night. It's beautiful!
