The Niagara Falls State Park was a breath of fresh air from the concrete jungle – literally and figuratively. It’s also in New York, but it gives you a different feel compared to the city. (Still speaking of breath) The view of the majestic falls up close was totally breathtaking. We rode the Maid of the Mist (a boat) which tours you around the two falls – Horseshoe Falls (Canada Side) and American Falls (American Side).

The Rainbow Bridge to Canada. Too bad we don’t have Canadian Visa.

Since it was a weekend, it’s imperative that we go to church. In Niagara, it’s not hard to find one. We went to the Our Lady of Fatima Shrine.

It’s not so obvious in this picture but the outline of the heart-shaped fountain forms a rosary. The crucifix is found at the end, beyond the trees.
