Niagara Falls, Ontario 2021

Our goal was to get to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. After 4 years of Trump, I needed OUT of this country. So I booked a 3 day trip with my son. We had to get a negative covid test to enter Canada, but we found a place where you take the test and you get the results about 30 minutes later. We got our negative test, and proceeded to the border from Buffalo. We crossed with no issues and checked into our Airbnb. I liked this Airbnb because it reminded me of where I grew up in Massachusetts. An older house with no central AC, and various apartments.

The day after we arrived, we went to Whirlpool Jet Tours, where we had a reservation. We got masked up, fitted up, and put on a boat. I sadly had to put my camera away at this point. I did make a TikTok video of our trip down the river.

After the awesome trip down the river, we went to take the slow boat trip into the falls. It was a powerful experience.

While there, I visited a local cannabis shop, of which there were dozens!!!!!! Coming from Tennessee where it's called the Devil's Lettuce, it was so wonderful to be able to buy legally and with NO BIG DEAL attached to it. I love Canada!!! We also had Poutine, of which they had veggie poutine. And, of course, I went to Tim Horton's to get some coffee. We also did Axe Throwing, my son beat me the first 2 rounds, but then he got tired and I ended up winning. Yay me!

The next day, we were supposed to leave at 3am to head back to Buffalo, when at midnight I received a message that our flight was cancelled. We left then, arrived at Buffalo airport around 4am. I tried online to change my ticket, no luck. We ended up booking Delta for our flight back, Southwest was nice enough to refund our tickets in the form of vouchers. It cost almost $600 to buy a ticket back to Nashville.

We ended up back in Nashville on the day we wanted, so I guess that was good. And Delta was super fancy compared to our SouthWest flight. Apparently the cancellation happened to thousands of other people, so I'm glad we got back to Nashville in a good amount of time.
