sign - Maid of the Mist Boat tours
The two RV Gypsies and
their grandson rode the
Maid of The Mist and
got up close and personal
with Niagara Falls and saw a beautiful rainbow.
July 24, 2011
The Maid of the Mist boat tour of Niagara Falls started at a calm part of the Niagara River, near the Observation Tower and Rainbow Bridge, and took the two RV Gypsies and other passengers past the American and Bridal Veil Falls, then into the dense mist of spray inside the curve of the Horseshoe Falls, also known as the Canadian Falls.

The two RV Gypsies and their grandson boarded the Maid of the Mist and their boat ride began with a view of the observation tower.

Then the Maid of the Mist approached the American and Bridal Veil Falls, allowing a fantastic look at a marvelous rainbow.

Then the Maid of the Mist went towards the dense mist of spray inside the curve of Horseshoe Falls, also known as the Canadian Falls. Another Maid of the Mist boat was already ahead by the Canadian Falls.

At this point, the two RV Gypsies were getting pretty wet, so they put the camera away because it was not a water-proof camera. Then they just relaxed and enjoyed the mist from the falls, as they viewed the Canadian Falls. The return trip to the Observation Tower was was just as wonderful.

The two RV Gypsies took these photos of the Canadian Falls (Horseshoe Falls) from the shore in Canada a few days later, to show how close the Maid of the Mist actually gets to the falls.
