When Elder Daughter turned 18 last week, I wanted to do something a little offbeat to honour my quirky adult-child. So instead of getting matching mani-pedis or having a posh Afternoon Tea, we got our Thelma and Louise on and took a mother/daughter road trip to Niagara Falls.
I got addicted to seeing amazing sights when I lived overseas, and the thought of giving that up was the hardest thing about repatriating. I needed this Niagara Falls trip to remind me there are some pretty spectacular sights right in my own backyard. Even though I’ve seen them many times before, it’s impossible to be bored by the Falls. They are breathtaking. Check out my video if you don’t believe me.
Many thanks to my beautiful videographer for patiently following her mother around all day, without once rolling her eyes. And also for being utterly adorable.
