Yes, I have been delinquent in my blog postings. Just having too much fun don't you know (smile).
Well, we visited the casino and entered the Den of Gamblers. Neither one of us had ever been in a casino before or played the slots. But tonight we had ten bucks and we were going to play! Talk about two neophytes. What a goofy pair we were. We didn't ven know how to play the quarter slots.
We found a security person and she was kind enough to find us a "simple" slot machine. We played, we lost. Oh well, it was fun. The lights, the action, the occasional screams of joy as someone actually did win . . . . all made for a wonderful experience. I don't know that we would ever repeat the experience but we did have fun. If for nothing else than to prove to ourselves and others that you're never too old to try a new adventure.
Later we took a ride on the giant Ferris Wheel. I have to say once we got on that Ferris wheel we had second thoughts but there we were. I took a video but we both decided not to post it on this blog posting because we were both wailing like scared little girls. Once was enough.
I did a lot of walking around on my recently healed leg. Maybe too much but we did cover a lot of territory. I never know that Niagara Falls was such a "Disneyland" of rides, amusements, restaurants, T-shirts shops and the usual tourist traps. But fun we had and it was yet another experience we added to the "Ron and Pat Road Show.
After comfortable night at the Ramada we had a very good, if expensive breakfast at the iHop connected to the hotel ($40 plus for eggs and sausage and pancakes for me - Pat only had the orange juice and coffee). Oh well, I'm used to it. I live near Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
We checked out of the hotel and began our two hour ride to Pat's home in Toronto, having fulfilled our "Niagara Experience."
Life is an adventure folks and we are having a grand time.
