At the moment, we are in the car driving to our next destination and resting after amazing and memorable day exploring Niagara Falls and the surrounding state park. After early Mass this morning, (7:00 is definitely early!) we headed to the Falls. It’s been a long day, what with seeing the waterfalls, riding the boat to the foot of the Horseshoe Falls, going on a hike along the river of about 7 miles, and then braving the mist to go on the platform near the foot of the American and Bridal Veil Falls. We just ate a good satisfying supper at the Hard Rock Cafe, with the result that I am getting sleepy, so Goodbye for now and God Bless.

Mary gave a short description of a stunningly beautiful day. We experienced the grandeur of the Falls and the beauty of nature. The good God has blessed us with beautiful weather and good spirits (this is a rather extreme expedition - long days, little sleep and much travel - but our pilgrims remain adventuresome and ready to go...despite a few thorns, a couple of blisters, and a GPS that keeps wanting to go to Canada!) We spent the night at Johnstown, New York, and will spend today at the North American Martyrs Shrine in Auriesville.
We've been posting pictures on Facebook and Flickr. And the Little Sisters of the Poor have also put our pilgrimage visit on their blog.
As we have the time and the internet availability, we will be posting more pictures and our travel log.
