Vacation '07

Well, another Damron Family Vacation is in the books! We didn't go south this year as we usually do. We went to Niagara Falls for three days and had a great time. There's a huge difference between Niagara Falls and Savannah - it's much closer, just a little over five hours, you don't have to go through customs for a visit to the south, but the most notable difference was the temperature - it was a smidge on the cool side during the day and downright chilly in the evening. We stayed at the Marriott in the Fallsview area, and the above picture of the falls was taken out of our hotel window, a view that was nothing short of spectacular.
Tim and I have been to the falls twice before, most recently about 20 years ago when Lindsay was just a couple of years old. Now the girls have both seen them and I have to admit that it will probably be the last time that Tim and I visit there. We had a great time and it is a beautiful site, but gee whiz it's an expensive place to visit. I realize that all resort areas are pricey, but the prices we had to pay in the restaurants were downright ridiculous. We had burgers at a TGIFridays on our first afternoon, with Linny and I drinking water and the bill was over $80.
What are your vacation plans this summer? I hope some of you will share your favorite places to visit and let us know why you enjoy them so much.

Great pix Laurie. I'm glad you had fun but man, sorry about those prices - ridiculous!

My favorite vacation was my cruise to the Grand Cayman Islands/Jamaica in Nov '04. Got to play with the dolphins, and it's cheaper to cruise than a lot of other vacation options. Nothing big planned this year - I'd like to go to RWA in SFO next year - we'll see. I might need to win the lottery LOL.

Glad you had a great time. I so missed you.....

I haven't taken a real vacation in years. My favorite was a cruise I took a lifetime ago, went to St. Thomas, St. Maarten and San Juan. It was wonderfull.
