Blue Skies

This week I'm linked to http://smilingsally.blogspot.com
Be sure and visit the other participants.

This past week we decided to take a break and go over the border to Niagara Falls on the NY side. The reason we go there is for some shopping..........the prices are far better then ours on the Canadian side. Plus me being a foodie I love to pick up some ingredients at Wegmans. The best part is that I'm only a bit over an hours drive so it's a breeze to get there. Sometimes in Toronto during rush hour it takes longer then an hour to get to where I want to go to everyday. :-(

Lovely blue sky overlooking the hotels on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

The Falls and on the left the US side......with the blue skies.

It just had rained for a minute or so but was pretty hot and muggy and after the rain this rainbow came out............I took this picture as I came out of Marshall's at the Fashion Outlet.

My husband wanted to take a short 5 minute nap...........so I tagged along back with him to the car and couldn't sleep like him and got bored so I snapped this picture of the flags in the parking lot. The Blue, red and white flag against the blue sky.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!!!!!!


  1. I am always amazed at the Falls, and the rainbows that you see there so often, I'm sure there is a scientific reason for it but who cares, it's lovely.

  2. Such gorgeous sky shots! And a great photo of the Falls. I've always wanted to see Niagara Falls - still hope to get there one of these days.

    Happy Blue Monday! from Joy @ Joysweb

  3. Beautiful photography. Would love to visit there. Looks a lot cooler than our south!!! ~~Sherry~~

  4. I've visited Niagara Falls and stood in awe at that gorgeous, mighty sight. Canada's side is much nicer.

    Happy Blue Monday, Ericka.

  5. Great photos. We were there 24 years ago when I was pregnant with our oldest. We stayed on the US side and visited the Canadian. Loved all of it - the Maid of the Mist, the tours, the wax museum - everything.
