|Roth Family Bus to Niagara Falls, photograph|
This is THEE PHOTOGRAPH I had to have back when I burned out my external hard drive. It's the best pic of our most memorable family trip for Honey's seventieth when first cousins finally met.
Midwest Roths met the West coast Roths, boarded our rented bus and drove to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada to see one of the great wonders of the world the NiagaraFalls and The Horseshoe Falls. The big guy, third guy down the line from the left and my youngest son, took charge of the driving, (and the tricky parking). We did the snacking, video gaming, cartoon watching and singing A Hundred Bottles of Beer on the wall way past who cared anymore. We did the Maid of The Mist. We went under the Falls. We enjoyed the nightly fireworks. We spent a lot of time in the souvenir shops--an incredible amount of time in the souvenir shops. But we missed the Butterfly House and the play at the George Bernard Shaw Theater. We have to go back.
Niagara-on-the-lake is a lovely small town just twenty minutes from the grand tourist attraction. Next trip, I'd like to try the hotel Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Phillip stayed in. It was the only one that had an outdoor pool. Looking at it, I did wonder if the Royals took a dip.
Finding this photo in this new cute external hard drive, no bigger than those giant playing cards for old people, was a learning exercise. There was a decision to be made before I found my stuff. I made the right one. I also learned how to eject the drive safely--very important I understand.
