Niagara Falls - Friday Night

 Home again, home again, jigitty jig! It's so lovely to go away and leave your problems behind even for just a couple of days. This is the lovely B&B we stayed in - I sat out front to drink my coffee and read each morning because it takes Michael much LONGER than me to get ready!! It's true!!  My one complaint about this place is their coffee - TOO weak so we'd head to Timmy's for some REAL coffee after our complimentary breakfast.
 As we were travelling around Friday evening looking for a restaurant to have dinner in I snapped this "sky" picture out of the car window - I'm amazed at how well it turned out (and I'm not going to show you all of the ones that DIDN'T turn out!)
We ended up eating at the Tandoori Hut but this picture of my butter chicken really doesn't do it justice!
 See? I'm smiling as it was DEEEEElicious!
And it wasn't so much a hut as an actual restaurant, thankfully! Though we were the only customers?!? but perhaps that was because it was around 8:30pm? We'll give them the benefit of the doubt.
The restaurant was Michael's choice...can you tell? It put a little "kick" in his step!
Afterwards we went next door to get a...........NOPE, just kidding!!  Though you never know....
We sort of saw the fireworks - they were on the OTHER side of the Skylon Tower so we had to make do with our partial view.
 We strolled around inside the Skylon Tower and found a really nice shopping area - designed for tourists but not junky like most of them are. I forgot to take pictures of my purchases so I'll do that and post them later.
We explored a bit more then it was back to the B&B for some R&R. I love the headboard of our bed - made from two large antique windows turned sideways and backlit creating a soft glow in the room. The bed was very comfy and I slept well - sometimes I don't sleep very well when I'm away as I miss my own bed but no problems here!

More later!

    Hmmmm, last time we ate curry in a restaurant we were also the only customers....but then I realised why...I wish I'd been brave enough to wipe the dripping oil from the poppadom onto the tabelcloth!
    looking forward to seeing more of your adventures in the honeymoon capital.

  7. Well you take what you can get sometimes (coffee)! It was better than the hot water they were serving at the B&B! Orange finger painting - are you referring to the sunset picture?

  13. Butter chicken is fairly healthy I think - it's all the naan bread and white rice to soak it all up with that is more calorie laden. I think.
