From there we headed west along the highway past several old farmhouses and corn fields. We returned to a favorite town from last time--Olcott--and got to see their summer carnival in full swing! This town is precious is we will be visiting it frequently when we move.
We continued west along the coast and headed toward Niagara Falls because the rain had cleared! We parked and headed to the falls. We saw the falls last time but several walkout points were roped off due to snow. This time we got to ride the Maid of the Mist boat that goes right up to both falls. It was amazing!
After we finished with that, we headed back to the Rainbow Bridge for our walk to Canada. We had already eaten lunch in Olcott but we worked up a sweat with all of our climbing so we decided to share a banana split and enjoy the view of America from the other side.
Today we had an appt. to meet the realtor at 3:30pm and planned a couple of things before then. First on the agenda was to check out the Underground Cave/Boat Tour in Lockport. We got to go inside the old canals of the Erie Canal that were built in the early 1800s.
After this excursion we grabbed lunch then met with our realtor at his office in Lockport. We chatted about several things involved with relocation and he seems to be a very good source when the time comes! He drove us to go thru this 150yr old Victorian house, then took us on a tour of the town!
We intended to have dinner south of Buffalo in West Seneca so we headed in that direction and stopped to see the beaches of Lake Erie. Last time we were here, the beach was covered in ice!
The sun was warm and people were having a blast swimming and flying kites.
This is where we ate at in West Seneca. I got the recommendation from an online forum for the area. We were not disappointed! The ambience was romantic, and the food was wonderful.
