A Valentine's Outing

With Valentine's Day coming the gang, Karl, Ruis, Opus, Olive, Momo, Socks, Asta, Stanley, Barney, and I decided that we would spend some time at romantic Niagara Falls.

We headed into Canada in the MFV and game upon a really nice flea market that had a bunch of barrels for sale. Since we were going to the falls we thought it would be fun to pick up a couple of barrles just in case we needed one.

The gang checked out the falls from below watching in awe at the magnificant view and power of the rushing water.

We decided that we should check into the hotel.  We had reserved rooms with a fantastic view of the falls.

After checking in we all headed upstairs to our rooms. We had adjorning rooms and put the guys in one room and the girls in the other.

We took a little time to rest up from our long fly in the MFV knowing that when we left the room we would have a long fun day and it would go well into the night so rest was a must.

When we went back to the falls the first thing we did was to take a ride on one of the boats that took us right up and behind the falls. This was one of the wetest ride I have ever been on but the view was worth every minute of  being wet and cold.

Seeing the falls from behind it and in front of it we decided to use the magic carpet that Momo brought along and checked out the falls from above. Also, we did a little scouting which I cannot tell you at this time what we were scouting but you will soon find out.

At night for Valentine's day we were treated to a colorful display of fireworks over the falls.

Sweet Barney had the most purrrfect end to Valentine's Day. Instead of watching the fireworks display with the others he had special balloons, flowers, and candy waiting for me in one of our rooms and we watched the fireworks from the comfort of our chair. Don't you just think he is the cutest?!

This was such a fun day and the evening was so delightful but tomorrow . . . well . . . tomorrow . . . well there is a very scary adventure . . . you won't be able to guess so be sure to come back and find out what happens.

Wishing all of you a Happy Valentine's Day

Good to be with you all celebrating St Valentine's Day. What fun we have together!

Simba said...

Wow, that is certainly more than an "outing" Gracie! It is a whole special Valentine's day vacation!

You know, I saw a Pet age calculator the other day, and the first year of a cat's life corresponds to age 15. So I wonder if you are quite old enough for such independence!!!

Happy Valentine's Day to all.

Brian said...

That is a great trip for all of you. Be very careful with the barrels. Don't get shut in one and go out over the Falls.It would be a very wet and rough ride.
Happy Valentine's Day to all of you.
