Got in late last night from our 2nd time into Niagara Falls so here we go with this week's blog post from you balcony blogger !
.....and the Balcony sure looks good with THIS view from the Anchor Motel ....
Wow ! Watching that sunset was truly amazing !
Niagara Falls and the surrounding area was , once again, a great experience. We dined at ELEMENTS which overlooks the falls and again I got some great shots from INSIDE the restaurant. This time around, there was a heat warning throughout the area. Temperatures were up above the 90 degree mark ! We parked near Clifton Hill and walked down the hill.... crazy steep.... and someone told us that the Falls were walking distance.....so we walked..... and walked....and walked..... got to see some zip-liners...that was crazy ! Racked in over 11,000 steps EACH to add to the dance a thon goal.... yet that was quite a long walk in the heat.....
On the last day ( Sunday, yesterday) we went to the Lewiston Fair.... I so enjoyed that. Picked up a few cool gifts and found some great connections at the fair including Carly's Club where Kisd Create hope for Cancer.....and Creative Copper Wire ( below) It was still really hot yet the delicious Fresh squeezed Lemonade and the freshly made Kettle Corn made us very happy !
Creative Copper Wire ( link above) was one of the vendors I came across. He made these wire hanging light catchers... I like that he was making them right in front of us and they were gorgeous.... Here is just one example.... ( cute advertising, too and even gave me back one of the marbles I lost.... LOL)
Yet I have to say that among the highlights of our trip was WHERE we tripped ! Ha Ha.... Where we stayed.... and that was the likes of the ANCHOR MOTEL on the US side in New York. This quaint place is only about 6 miles from the Falls and if you want to just be relaxed on your visit, The Anchor Motel is a must.... They are open from roughly the 1st week in May to roughly the last week in September and the handful of rooms there on the strip of land sells out FAST !
The view from the dock is probably one the feature selling points, although I found the quaint rooms to be clean and comfortable too. Only exceeding all of that, was the Lovely couple that own the Motel, Kathy is so friendly and willing to answer your questions to make your visit to the area complete. She keeps at hand a tear-off pad of a huge map right at the front counter so she can circle and pinpoint anyplace around you would like to visit ! Of course, the closest is the Dock where you can watch the beautiful sunrise and/or Sunset ....and the coffee is always on in the office !
AND TELL THEM AVA SENT YOU !
We're certainly not tripping into the FALLS yet tripping at the Falls at the Anchor Motel !
