Weekly Photo Challenge: BLUE
It’s been a long time. I’m sure my parents took us on this ride when we were young but I have no recollection of it. Now many years later I’m back and this time I’m with “the Chef.” It’s our second year anniversary and we’ve made the trek to the “Honeymoon Capital of the World,” Niagara Falls. Normally, we wouldn’t entertain the thought of doing such a touristy thing but this is Niagara and it’s the closest thing we have to the schlock of Las Vegas. Time to put away the inhibitions and just play. Besides, if it’s good enough for Brad and Angelina (they went in 2009) it’s good enough for us.
We wait patiently in line. Finally, we’re on the boat with hundreds of other BLUE raincoat clad tourists. First, the “Maid of the Mist” chugs slowly towards the American Falls then to the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. My ears fill with the roar of thundering water. Fine mist and spray covers my face and my glasses. I forget I’m a tourist and just soak in the amazing power of nature.
