As we were leaving Ohio, we had nasty weather to contend with. We actually had a tornado warning come up on the GPS, but Daniel did a great job getting us to New York safely.
We chose to stay at the KOA campground in Grand Island, NY because it is located only 7 miles from Niagara Falls. Since we had a short "driving day" the kids were ready to check out the pool. This KOA had many amenities and activities which we didn't even take advantage of because the kids didn't want to leave the pool. Can you blame them though?
After the kids had some time to swim, Daniel decided he wanted to scope out Niagara Falls for our visit tomorrow. I'm really glad we did because it helped us formulate a plan for the following day and we were able to see the falls at dusk.
We were able to walk across a bridge that crosses the water before the falls. The water is flowing very rapidly. We found out that this water has already been through four of the great lakes and after it goes over the falls will flow to Lake Ontario.
Tomorrow is going to be an exciting day because we are planning a trip aboard the Maid of the Mist and the Cave of the Winds tour. Hopefully there won't be a two hour wait like there was tonight!
Here is a fun picture of what was parked next to us at the KOA. The kids were pretty excited to see it!
