Niagara Falls

Before going to the falls, Vera and I went to Grand Island to go to Kelly's Country Store.
 We arrived a few minutes before it opened, so we explored a bit in Grand Island, just to see what was there.  Also, right next to the store is this old one room schoolhouse which was moved there from across the street:
Vera purchased gifts for her family and I bought a few very small items.

Then we headed to Niagara Falls.  Construction blocked our direct route to Niagara Falls State Park, but we found it easily.  We went first to the Visitors Center in the park and were given directions to follow.  We walked down to the lookout area of the falls and then went to the observation deck. 
This was Vera's first time to see the falls and she thoroughly enjoyed i.

Then we decided to go see the Casino.  Vera signed up and was given ten dollars free play, which we used on one of the WHEEL OF FORTUNE machines.  She won $1.25
We talked with this worker: 
She suggested we go to this diner for lunch.  
Luckily for us, we arrived a few minutes before their 1;30 p.m. closing time.  Vera had an omelet and I had a Beef on Weck.  Prices here are great.  Its really a vintage diner that has not been redecorated in a loooong time.  
I loved it!  That ended our day and we headed back to Lockport.
