When: Tuesday May 18, 2010

Floral dress: from this seller on eBay
Jean jacket: Saks (Panama)
Pink belt: Madison (Panama)
Beige boots: El Costo (Panama)
Brown scarf: giveaway at a L'Oreal special event
Brown Liz Claiborne purse: TJ Max
Monkey jewelry: Claire's

Where: Walked through the "Cave of the winds" under Niagara Falls, rode on the "Maid of the Mist" boat ride to get sprayed by the mist, and crossed over to Canada!!!

Continuing with my eBay obsession Challenge, I decided to wear this floral dress I got from eBay. I think this is probably one of my favorite things I have bought on eBay because its a) colorful and b) floral!! How can I not love something that is colorful and floral?

Today was an AWESOME day to say the least. We started off by getting up bright and early and heading to the Cave of the Winds which is a walkway under one of the falls. To go down the "caves", they gave us some really fashionable (totally sarcastic) poncho and plastic sandals... jaja, we were laughing so hard at how silly we looked; but my boyfriend said I looked cute no matter what I wear ;)
May 18 (12)
So from there we set of on our adventure under the falls. Let me tell you, the view of the falls from underneath is just breathtaking!!
May 18 (13)
I truly could not believe I was actually seeing these wonderful falls. I was so happy and impressed at the same time.
May 18 (14)
One of the coolest parts was actually how the falls splashed against the rocks; there was so much mist in the air!! Simply amazing!
May 18 (15)
As we headed through the trail, we kept getting more and more wet with the mist (they weren't joking when they said you needed ponchos and disposable shoes!). There was a part of the trail that actually splashed freezing water on you! It was so much fun to play in the water :)
May 18 (16)
My boyfriend and I decided to be true adventurers and head all the way up the trail. At the top of the trail you actually get splashed by the waterfall... it was soooooooooooooooo cool! I was so inspired and impressed by the force of the falls and all of the mist in the air. Needless to say, I ended up soaked from head to toe, jeje.
May 18 (17)
Then we headed over to the Maid of the Mist which is a boat ride that takes you close to one of the falls to get wet by the mist (we were already soaked anyway, so why not?). The view of the falls from the boat was also amazing!
May 18 (19)
I felt like I was in a movie or a postcard... it was still very surreal to see something so beautiful and so unique.
May 18 (18)
The wind and the mist from the falls was very strong on the boat ride. Everyone was trying to hide under their ponchos; but my boyfriend and I had a wonderful time getting wet and being silly... I'm so happy to have a silly companion to go along with my silliness :)

Once we lived those two wonderful experiences, we took baths and got ready for the rest of our adventurous day. We decided to head over to the bridge that joins the U.S. and Canada so that we could cross over to Canada. The bridge also had a wonderful view of the falls (I guess no matter where you stand its a wonderful view! jaja)
May 18 (21)
Once we got to the official line that divided U.S.A. and Canada, I was soooo happy to cross it! I have never been in Canada! I had a wonderful time being silly by jumping from one country to the other and taking pictures. With one foot in Canada and the rest of my body in the U.S., I can now officially say that I have been in two countries at the same time:
May 18 (22)
Sadly, my boyfriend had problems with the immigrations and wasn't able to cross to Canada... buuuu. Since he has already been there before a couple of years ago, he insisted over and over and over again that I should go ahead without him to see at least a little bit of Canada... isn't my boyfriend awesome? So I decided to go take a peek :)
May 18 (23)
Canada was AWESOME! I absolutely love the "feeling" of walking down its streets. It also had a great view of the falls (I have written this sentence way too many times in the post... sorry, but its true! jeje).
May 18 (24)
I had a wonderful time walking around, enjoying the beautiful flowers and park, and seeing the falls from the Canadian side. I'm so proud and excited to say that I have been in Canada!!
May 18 (25)
So today was my last day at Niagara falls... our mini-trip was just amazing! We had a wonderful time seeing all of these unique and inspiring sights; but most of all, we enjoyed being together as we saw these amazing sights. I'm so happy that I had this opportunity, its one of those cherished memories you know you will remember forever.
