Day 43 – Niagara Falls, New York (Rest Day)

It has taken me a while to get to the backlog of daily reports. Rain on two days and bad WiFi have conspired to prevent me from catching up. Consider this a down payment.

The weather was not that hot but felt hotter due to the humidity. Nothing a shower couldn’t wash away. I started mid-morning at Goat Island, a short walk from our hotel on the New York side of the falls. Eventually I walked back over to the Canadian side.

In the summer, there is a nightly fireworks show at 10 pm. Not having a tripod made it a little difficult but I did capture this image and the one that follows hand holding my mirrorless camera.
