W is for waterfalls !

I saw the Niagra falls from the Canada side. They look even more spectacular from there because you can see the  complete horse shoe formation.



You can also see the Maid of the Mist boat in the above picture. The Maid of the Mist takes you almost till the falls and it is an experience never to be forgotten.

I took the following picture from the boat. The roar of the falls was almost deafening and we were completely drenched with water. 

it did feel that we were in the presence of something much more powerful and immense than us ! 


The view from the top !



By the way, do any of you know what Nirjharini - The name of my blog means :P

  22. Your blog posting on Niagra has taken my memories back to 1975 when I stayed at your house at Lodhi colony on my way to Canada. You were just a baby on the cradle. I enjoyed about a week. I saw you and your aunty for the first time. Your aunty was about to get married that time. It gives me immense pleasure today to see the tiny girl whom I saw at that time has now grown into a a very mature member of the society. A very short but nice posting. I appreciate it very much. Yes "Nirjhorini" means a stream falling from above and your name of the blog is very much matching with the current posting.
    With Love
