Pennsylvania to New York (Day three Maine trip)

June 12, 2011 Sunday

Pennsylvania to New York

Woke up early and headed out of the roach motel

heading to New York.

After many hours of driving, we crossed into New York to our next stop Lake Effect Diner.

Yep you guess it another Diner, Drive-in and Dive. We got to the diner somewhere around 1:00pm our GPS brought us to the diner right through what my wife call the bad part of town;

I just call it old.

Anyway we made it safe and sound, the diner was small, but cool looking. As with the last post, here is a photo, I will be doing a complete story in a post soon.

Next stop Niagara Falls,

it took a bit to find the place (only one of the biggest water falls in the world) but once we did, we got a room at the Comfort Inn right next to the falls (easy walk) we unpacked and headed to the falls, it was somewhere around 60 degree with a lots of wind so we stopped off at one of the many souvenir shops along the way and bought my wife a Niagara Falls sweatshirt to keep her warm during the walk.

The park itself is beautiful, lots of walking trails to and around the falls.

 Well we made our way to the falls, and I have to say the scene from the movie Vacation came to mind.

The falls are beautiful

but seemed kind of small. I guess I had built them up in my mind. We took some photos and a few videos

then made our way around to the other side.

Then back to the room we went for some much needed rest, we had been doing back to back 500 mile driving days.

Woke up around 10:00pm that night to the sound of what I thought was thunder, then I realized it was not thunder at all, it was the fireworks show over the falls. I could see them from my window, the wife was dead to the world never moved out of bed…I guess I need to start calling her MY OLD LADY!!!


Till next time
