These were by far the biggest falls I've ever seen. Not the tallest, but definitely the widest! There were actually two separate waterfalls - this is Horseshoe Falls, which is the big, main part of the falls:
Me in front of Horseshoe Falls! When the wind was blowing, you could feel mist on your face from all the water.
There was a smaller set of falls to the left called the American Falls. They were pretty because of all the rocks they had at the bottom for the water to crash over. That's New York in the background!
Me by the American Falls!
When we finished eating dinner it was getting dark out, and they turned spotlights on the falls as we were walking back to the car. It was so, so beautiful! I couldn't try to take any pictures because it started to pour rain, so I will just have to remember how pretty it was.
On our last day in Canada, we went to Casa Loma in Toronto. It was built by a very rich businessman in 1911, because he had always wanted to live in a medieval-style castle. I was terribly excited as I walked down the steps from the parking area to get my first glimpse of it!
Then I saw it through the trees, and it looked just like a real ancient castle! There was a fountain out front, and I almost got wet trying to take my picture with it because it was so windy out, and the gusts were blowing the dripping water straight to the side!
The inside of the castle was beautiful...I wish I lived there!! Here is the lady of the manor's sitting room where she entertained her friends, and the greenhouse:
The terrace outside was full of plants and flowers even though it was October. I climbed up into a little gazebo to look at everything.
Everything was so pretty to look at.
Here I am back inside, in the library. I like this picture because of the light shining in on my head! I think it makes me look very ghostly.
After we finished looking around Casa Loma, we had to leave and make the long drive back home to Michigan. :( I loved Canada! I want to go back again someday. Here is one last picture from my trip - it's me looking out the top window at Casa Loma. I was pretending I was a princess locked in the tower room, trying to come up with a plan to escape.
