Just a very quick one for now - I will extend later. I am just on my way out to the travel agents to find out about flights to Dubrovnik and/or Montenegro.

This was a sign at Killbear provincial park in Canada. They have rare and venomous Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake and Eastern Fox Snakes there that get themselves run over, hence the signs. We didn't see a Rattler but a Fox snake did slither right in front of us and scared the life out of us as even though they don't have a rattle they do vibrate their tails in the dry leaves and it sounds like a rattle.

The ride on the Maid of the Mist was "Awesome" creating yet another unforgettable experience for us.
I even managed to capture a very rare moment of tenderness between my boys.
The evening was spent walking down the strip and seeing the falls all lit up I do have photos of it all but I have to get dressed now and re-pack (I am looking forward to not living out of a suitcase on Friday) ready to check out and drive round to the speed boat which we are booked on for 10am. The sun is up and it's nice and warm already so even though we will get soaked through we won't be cold. I will be hunting for a triangle for HS:MS on my travels today.

When we reached the top of the hill (and caught our breath back) we saw a couple of these little guys scrabbling about in the dirt which made my day.
We walked a little bit further and found the coolest fire fountain....
We returned to Manhattan and dropped the big camera off at the hotel, got some dinner and then headed off to go on "The Beast" which was fantastic. On your last night in New York what better thing could you do than go on a speed boat ride out to Liberty with pumping music and the sun almost setting - "Awesome"!!
See how close our hotel was to "Times Square".
