Our trip to Niagara Falls, July-August 2013

Fall 2013

19 photos

Dan, Gaye, and Anne went to Niagara Falls for a few days at the end of July 2013. These are photos of us as we played see Dan's artistic photos of the Falls themselves, please click here.

Our first order of business after landing in Buffalo was to get lunch! We were directed by the nice clerk at Thrifty Rental Car to the Anchor Bar, which is the "Home of the Original Buffalo Chicken Wings." So, of course, Dan had to take a photo of the sign...

...and so did the rest of us! (By the way, just in case you're wondering, Anne is shooting with her iPod...but the case on it looks like a classic Argus C-3!)

We stopped at Goat Island, on the U.S. side of the Falls, for a little while before going over to Canada. Here Gaye chases a couple of seagulls.

Anne posing at the monument to Nikola Tesla, who, with George Westinghouse, built the first hydro-electric power plant in the world at Niagara Falls in 1895. (Hey, this Bullock Family web site is educational!)

Dan, in the rotating restaurant at the top of the Skylon Tower overlooking the town of Niagara Falls, Ontario, shows off the cheesiness of his French onion soup. (photo by Anne Bullock)

Anne and Gaye pose in the Skylon Tower restaurant, in front of the Falls (Bridal Veil Falls behind Anne, Canadian Falls behind Gaye).

We rode the Maid of the Mist boat up to the Falls. This view is from standing in line, waiting our turn, having already been issued our blue ponchos.

Dan and Gaye enjoying getting wet in the spray and mist from the Falls. Anne shot this with a cheap, but waterproof, 35mm film camera Dan brought just for this occasion! (photo by Anne Bullock)

Here's Anne being happy while trying to stay dry!

Dan and Gaye on the sidewalk overlooking the American Falls, as photographed on Gaye's iPhone by a friendly stranger!

Dan got this picture of happy Gaye with his telephoto lens, as she walked toward him from our hotel (where she had gone back to, upon remembering that she needed to get something...)

A glamorous photo of Anne, in front of a display of wine casks, as we waited for our tour of the Inniskillin Winery to begin. (photo by Gaye Bullock)

A self-portrait with Gaye's iPhone, as the sun set over the Canadian Falls, from the Ontario side.

Gaye at the Queen Charlotte Tea Room and British Restaurant (which, upon thinking of it, actually made sense for it to be in Ontario, Canada...)

Gaye in a small city park, full of flowers.

Gaye takes a picture of Dan taking a picture of her, as we get a quick lunch at an outdoor restaurant..

Gaye on the far left, and Anne on the far right, enjoying the wine tasting at the end of the Inniskillin Winery tour.

Finally, on our way back to the airport to go home, we stopped to enjoy the view of the Niagara River (upstream of the Falls), and while cuddling, a friendly cyclist stopped and took our picture!
