Welcome to the Tales of the Traveling Totes, where my fellow travelers and I share our latest adventures, projects, and current events. At the end of my post you will find links to visit our other members and learn about how to register for our giveaway. I'm so glad you've stopped by.

The last time the Tales of the Traveling Totes convened, I shared the day that I spent with fellow toter, Patti, in Clayton, New York. Prior to heading to Clayton, Sweet Mister and I took a detour to Niagara Falls for him to see the falls for the first time. I had seen them decades ago as a child, and I was equally awestruck this time. Carrie Ann and I were thrilled to be able to capture a ton of pics of the falls on the American and the Canadian sides. The first day we arrived on the American side shortly before sunset. I shot until I depleted my camera battery. I wanted to share a few of my pics with you...

"New York, New York, what a wonderful town!"

Niagara Falls, such a majestic jewel of our country.

Looking toward the Canadian side and our destination for the night.

Carrie Ann grabbed an early morning perspective of the American and Canadian falls before we boarded the Horn Blower for a ride.

From the mist which rose from the boulders at the base of the falls...

to the incredible vista of the falls as they came careening over the top, it was an unforgettable moment in our lovely time in Niagara Falls. If you haven't seen the falls, make plans now! It's not to be missed.

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. I appreciate each and every one of your comments. You make my day each time you touch base. Thank you!

  2. So glad Miss Carrie Ann didn't fall over the edge! I think the falls are so spectacular! I just couldn't believe that that much volume could travel over the edge, and then do it every day! What a wonder of nature! Looks like there is a surprise in your bag! Can't wait!

  3. Cherry Kay, Wow, Niagara Falls certainly made a dramatic back drop for Carrie Ann. I've been there once and it was amazing. I enjoyed your photos and hearing about your fun travels. Happy December..........

  4. I have been to Niagara Falls once when I was a child, a place I will never forget! Thank you for sharing those gorgeous photos and bringing back memories! And here it is, December! Happy holiday adventures Cherry Kay!

  5. Cherry Kay, your photos of Niagra are spectacular. Makes me want to plan a trip. I've never see Niagra Falls!
    Glad you and the mister had this fabulous trip together to that part of the country. I have a true fondness for upstate NY and the rural beauty that it offers. I'm eager to make a return trip. Happy Holidays ahead!

  6. What a grand holiday! I know you and the tote had a marvelous time!

  7. Oh, Cherry Kay, Niagara Falls is so majestic, isn't it? I also remembered visiting there as a child, but went back a few years ago with Mr. P. who, like your husband, had never been. We were both awestruck. You have fabulous shots thaylt make me want to return again. Thank you for sharing. I hope someday we can all meet as tribe sisters and share some quality time together. Happy December!

  8. Cherry Kay, your pics of Niagra Falls are exceptional! I've never been and I must say your post has piqued my interest. Again, what amazing pics.
    Thanks for sharing your trip.

  9. So glad that Carrie Ann and the Mister got to see Niagara Falls for the first time. It is truly a wonder that all must see. It's always nice to see both the American and Canadian sides. Hope the next time you are in New York will be in July for the MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale :-). Happy December!

  10. How exciting that you and your bag took a trip to Niagara Falls. I visited there a few years ago in the winter and there was a lot of snow on the ground. It's such a beautiful place that you have to visit and see. I enjoyed looking at the awesome photos. Happy December!

  11. My family just went to Niagara Falls last year in September and my boys are still talking about what a wonderful time we had there.
