A New Day... everyday!

Well, your kind words and support have once again pulled me out of the weight loss gutter... I know I worry too much sometimes but I have been doing so well that I don't want my addiction to pull me back down. I have really enjoyed my trip and I know I'll get back to reality in more ways than one. We have seen such amazing natural beauty here... We went on the Maid of the Mist boat ride, We went behind the Horseshoe Falls in the Journey behind the Falls tour, We experienced Niagara's Fury...and after drying ourselves off... the next day we went for a walk along the whitewater rapids and then rode the Aero Whirlpool Car across the rapids and the whirlpool in the Niagara Gorge. It was incredible! We met this sweet girl who worked for Niagara Parks Commission and she arranged for us to get to go up the Illumination Tower and change the lights on the falls at night. I made them all blue... my favorite color,...then red, my second favorite... and then all the colors of the rainbow... It was beautiful. We got a certificate and all for being official Illuminators of the Falls. It was a memorable experience... and a highly scrapbookable one. We are headed back to the states today and staying in Niagara Falls, NY for one night so we're near the airport to go home tomorrow. I love Niagara Falls! I'm so glad that we finally got to see it. Toronto was fun too, even with the millions of police officers and the 10 foot steel fences that made it look like a concentration camp... We loved the Toronto Zoo though, which is in Scarsborough, a suburb of Toronto... where Mike Myers grew up. Well, I need to read about 100 blogs that I missed... We'll talk soon, *Maria*
