The first thing we did was go on the Maid of the Mist, and it's lucky we did cos the queues later on was l-o-n-g. They gave us giant blue raincoats which we mocked but came to learn that they were a necessity - my camera would have been wrecked without it!
Having been twice before, you would think I'd be sick of the sight of Niagara Falls but you'd be wrong, it's such an amazing sight and this time I got a whole new perspective.
On the boat, we went right up next to the American Falls, and then straight into the middle of the Horseshoe Falls. It's the mist that gets you totally soaked, it spirals up even higher than the falls and you can't see the middle of the waterfall, there's that much of it. The Maid of the Mist was definitely the highlight of my day, and it's just one of those touristy things that you have to do!
