Niagara Falls Evening - Ron and Pat's Excellent Adventure



 
Hey folks, I'm getting better at stringing my short videos together in a short movie.  Here is my videos from my recent visit to Niagara Falls with my friend Pat.  I now know how to add a title and an ending.  Now I have to clean up my video clips but this video will give you a flavor of what our evening was like visiting that tourist mecca of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.  Always fun!

Enjoy!

  1. I just watched the video full-screen, and I started getting queasy when you guys were up in the Ferris wheel. The view was fantastic - especially the great view of the falls. As an eternal pessimist, I would have been worried about a wheel malfunction and having to be rescued by helicopter. The water show at the end of the video was really neat.

    My parents went to Niagara Falls once when I was only about a year old - so I don't remember a thing. That was back when George Washington was President (smile)...

    1. Jon,
      Thank you very much for your generous compliment on my video making abilities. I figured it was time to stitch together some of my many few second videos and make them more interesting. It takes a bit of time but I feel the finished product is worth it.
      About the Sky Wheel, when I was young I wasn't so afraid of heights but now heights freak me out. I don't know what happened. I too was thinking of a malfunction when we were up that high in that cage.
      This is the third time I've been to Niagara Falls and every time I'm impressed. Sure, it's tacky and very touristy but I love that. That's the white trash coming out in me again. I love tacky. You won't catch me at any Shakespeare Festivals.

  2. Congratulations, Ron. Your successful 'stitching together' has created a quite wonderful mini-epic - a full-sized bite of Niagara atmosphere rather than just a flavour. I particularly liked the Ferris wheel and that utterly spectacularly water-jets display with a vivid semblance of fireworks - but I also like to see people walking around doing there own thing, whether locals or tourists, though I don't suppose there'd be many of the former here.
    I'd like to see both of you, wrapped up in waterproofs, taking one of those tiny sightseeing boats that phut-phut around the base of the falls. They must get scarily close and I'm not sure that I'd be brave enough to do it.

    Thanks very much for that. I'm sure you've got yet more hidden treasures to reveal. Bring 'em on!

    1. Thank you Ray! It took a bit of learning for this old head to figure out how to stitch my short videos together to make an interesting "travelogue". I had fun doing it though. Now I have thousands of videos to stitch together! Be prepared! And by the way, we'll do the Maid of the Mist thing next year at Niagara Falls.

  3. Well Ron - Not only are you a chef, gardner, blogger, hotelier (am I forgetting anything) - but now on your way to becoming a movie director/producer. Good for you for taking the time and energy to know how to edit your videos.

    1. Pat,
      I think I missed my calling. I love putting together these "movies."
