Movieland is somewhere I would have liked to go to if we had stayed another day. I like wax museums. It is such a great talent to sculpt something that really looks like a real person, especially of someone who already exists. My Canon batteries died after I took the pictures at dinner, so my mom let me use her phone to take pictures of the two displays that people could view from outside. I'll show you those in another post when I just put up pictures that were taken on our phones. I'll probably do that one last. And this ferris wheel was 140 feet tall. A baby compared to the Orlando Eye, which is 400 feet!
For dinner on Sunday night while staying in Ontario, we walked past a burger place called The Works that looked really good and had a lot of random options. I really liked all the mini Polaroids pinned to the fence inside. I ordered the burger with nachos on it. Deeelish, eh? ;) Uncle Larry stayed after to pay the bill while Mommy and I walked back to a store we found some cute items in. I bought a purple crystal stone with a small metal wolf shape soldered on top. Then we climbed up to the second floor of a building that has an unknown purpose aside from watching Fireworks from a higher location. Those were nice to see, but the biggest and loudest I've watched.
The second day in Niagara Falls (Monday, August 15th) we had breakfast at the Flying Saucer again since they had breakfast for $2.99. Then we went to Jim's No Frills grocery store and an RX store to find Canadian candy. We paid with paper American bills and got plastic Canadian money in return. I bought a Wunderbar, Mr. Big, Crispy Crunch and Coffee Crisp. So far Michael and I have shared the Cadbury Wunderbar. That chocolate bar was good with caramel, peanut butter and peanuts. Their wafers are really good and light too. I bought coconut flavored ones for Michael- he loved them! I really wish he could have come on this vacation with me, but he's working really hard at VAMP.
We took the bus to the IMAX theater and saw a very nicely shot film about the Indian girl who paddled down the falls after being married off by the chief. She became the Maiden of the Mist (hence the boat's name) and her spirit helped a lot of the other people who ventured over the falls and survived. Including a kitten and a turtle. After the movie we walked through the gift shop and the tiny museum that had the barrels and metal containers that men used to risk their lives for a bit of fame.
