We got up early the next morning and went back to the falls. If you missed the night shots you can click here. The silhouette photo was taken at this railing near horseshoe falls.
We were blessed with a double rainbow.
And we just had to know if there was a pot of gold at the end of it. (The little white spots are gulls)
Not sure I see any gold, but it's pretty cool that the rock shares the rainbow colors.
We continued our Goat Island tour by going to the Cave of the Winds. That deck looks a little scary - and wet- from up here doesn't it? We put the little point and shoot in a waterproof package and took it with us.
So the rest of these photos were shot with the Olympus point and shoot by Dennis. Here's me at the first deck. Not much water on me yet. That's Bridal Veil Falls behind me.
I love this shot! That's me looking like an angel. :) Dennis did good!
Ok, my feet are getting wet now, and the water is cold, but I'm still smiling.
Now Haden and I are on the Hurricane Deck, a mere 20' from Bridal Veil Falls. Very windy and wet!
And Dennis says, "Back up a little. Back up." About this time a huge splash plopped on my head, soaking me entirely. Those rain things aren't really that helpful, they are an illusion of dryness. Before this I was having a good hair day! Haden's still smiling.
Next we went on the Maid of the Mist Boat tour. We would have loved to take our big cameras down there but just couldn't risk it. So again, the point and shoot had to snap our memories.
The force of all the water falling kept our boat pretty rocky and there were plenty of splashes to make a clear photo nearly impossible.
Me, trying to find a dry spot at the base of horseshoe falls. We just stayed there letting the water pellet us. What did I say about a good hair day?
Dennis isn't happy with these photos, the water droplets irk him to no end. But I think they help reveal what we were going through at the time the photos were taken. It was wet, windy and the waters kept raging. Great memories!
It calms down a lot once you get away from the falls. We were on a boat just like the one in the photo and that's Canada over there.
