We had read that Canada Customs for RV's could be more intensive, but 30 minutes while we waited behind the 'Yellow line' outdoors with Tiger seemed a little much to us. They rummaged through our rig, truck and truck bed and of course found nothing. And Bob and I sort of giggled as they asked us to put out the slides enough to walk though the rig but with the slides not fully extended, not all cabinets were accessible. OK, we fully admit, we think this stuff way too much. Seriously, 30 min, seemed excessive for some old folks in an RV.
It seems to rain here a bit and we were lucky, we thought, on our adventures, as we mostly caught the breaks between storms. When we did get a little wet it was not bad as it was 70 degrees outside.
We did the tourist thing one day (Canadian side). That consisted of the Horn Blower boat tour (pretty neat as they bring you right up to the base of the falls), the White Water Walk also really cool as we got to stroll along the class 6 water rapids that feed into the falls which was beautiful. Our one day ticket also included the behind the falls tour - a tunnel that looks into the gushing white water (sort of a reminder of a snow filled TV screen in the day) and a 4 D movie of the falls (a simulated boat tour where you were both rained on and snowed on). Both of these last tours were interesting in their own way but we would not, personally, pay to do these had they not been in a grouped ticket. That said, they were both still enjoyable and wet. Three of our four tours included disposable rain ponchos, aka plan to get wet. Our second adventure day in Canada included a walk along the falls with more photo ops. While there we lucked upon the opportunity to see a "Stomp" show. What a neat treat. Stomp is a percussion/dance show with all sounds made from common things like brooms, pots, and plastic tubes. If you are not familiar with Stomp check out this YouTube Video Stomp We so enjoyed the show that day and we also got to view the Falls one more time. We finished with a lovely Seaood brunch at the Canadian Casino with crab legs, raw oysters, shrimp, clams, salmon, sushi, and every seafood dish one could dream up- even seafood lasagna and lobster ravioli. The food was quite good, most especially the Canadian Salmon.
