Niagara Falls

So on the weekend i went to Niagara Falls with my girlfriend. It was very nice. She is going to be very busy for the next few weeks so this seemed like a good time to try and get away for a little while. We stayed at a Best western hotel not too far from the falls. I actually used my airmiles to pay for the room. So after being a airmiles collector for about 9 years they finally did something for me. The room cost me 1400 of my 1500 airmiles for the 2 days we stayed. We did all the tourist tyep stuff. I have technically been to Niagara a few times before but i have never done any of the tourist stuff. We went on the Maiden of the Mist Tour (boat ride), the Journey Behind the Falls and The White water walk. I will say now that the Maid of the Mist Tour was pretty good but the other two were somewhat disappointing. The other two are basically just walking beside the water. I can take some comfort in the fact that both events were fairly inexpensive but still not the enjoyable.

We also went into the casino. I am not really that big of a gambler so i don't have much to report from that end. On sunday morning we went and had breakfast at a restaurant with my sister and her two kids. She lives in Niagara and it was nice to see them. After that we came home.

Overall, it was a good weekend.

Next week... I don't know yet.

You should show some pictures from the trip.

Ideas for next week:
1. The current status on your DVD collection.

2. Fighting off the Martin Belly

I would second the idea on how to fight off the Martin Belly because I have been working out consistantly fo the past five months and though I do not have the offical Martin Belly I can't seem to get the wash board abs that I want.

You forgot to mention how we bet $20 in the casino and left with $19.95 so the net result is that we spent $0.05 in the casino!!! :)This was due to your girlfriend's insistence on cashing in every win, regardless of how small. Every little bit added up so we didn't end up leaving with a big loss. I really liked the computerised black jack and next time we visit I'd like us to play that game the most.
