The birthday (Lisa) in Buffalo and the surrounding area was a jam packed week………..we started the week with a “Taste of Buffalo” a taste bud sensation that whetted our appetite to learn more about Buffalo. We jetted down the Niagara River and then toured the historic Fort Niagara on Monday. Tuesday saw us at the harbor where we toured the USS Little Rock, USS Sullivan, and USS Croaker and had an opportunity to learn some more about history. Wednesday the big BIRTHDAY we went to Goat Island State Park and then crossed to the Canadian side to view Niagara Falls from both vantage points. Great day was had by all. Thursday was spent at Letchworth State Park, one of my fav’s, where we got to see a rainbow over the falls and had an amazing dinner with some special people. Friday we slowed down a bit had lunch and then relaxed around the area.
Buffalo, NY who knew there was so much going on? The day started out slowly, but rapidly progressed to a fast paced day in Buffalo. A lunch at a charming cafe started out our adventures and then we were off to our Niagara Jet Boat tour. A mad dash down the Niagara River where we were jetted through some rapids and were lucky enough to get close to the whirlpool. A drenching adrenaline rushed ride.
Slowing down the pace we went to Niagara Fort and soaked in the history of the area while our hair dried in the warm summer sunshine. Mexican food and dessert capped off a perfect day in Buffalo. Looking forward to what tomorrow has to offer us.
