Before the wedding my father, Uncle Chip, Richard and I decided to go explore a local town called Sharon Springs, in search of coffee and breakfast snacks. The cafe wasn’t open when we arrived, so we wandered down the street to peek at the little downtown section.
The town used to be a big vacation spot for a famous bath house.
This old funky hotel was beautiful, but showing its age.
It was also for sale, at a great price! (if you need 10acres)
We grabbed donuts and cappuccinos at the Black Cat Coffee shop.
On Friday, Richard and I picked up my cousin Andrew and his wife Katie from Jeannette’s house. We drove 4.5 hours from Troy to Niagara Falls. I was the only one that brought my passport, so we stayed on the American side. We stopped for pizza and wings for lunch, and munched on Dunkin’ Donuts as well.
Our lunch on Friday
We walked around the Falls for a bit, snapped tons of photos, and got tickets for the Maid in the Mist tour boat.
It was amazing! I loved how the water was rushing so loud, and disappeared off the edge. I know sometimes doing the touristy-thing can be lame, but this time it was fantastic!
- Niagara Falls
Despite the blue ponchos they gave us, I was totally drenched.
Katie and I.
We walked back to the car and saw some cool statues.My cousin and I had matching converse shoes! Can you tell which are his and which are mine?
Matching outfits, totally unplanned.
Naturally, my cousin crawled onto a public monument while I took his photo. #ilovemyfamily
My cousin Andrew is awesome.
We drove back and crashed. It was one very long, but still lovely day! Did you do anything fun on Friday? Have you ever been to Niagara Falls? Have you been to any touristy places that you really enjoyed? (Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, White House, etc)?
