Thursday 16th May

Day off the bike. The plan today is just relax, look around and do the washing. Normally on a cycle tour we can hand wash as we go,but the weather has been against us,so we’ve been left with damp smelly clothes. I’m positive that people were noticing! So a twenty minute walk to a launderette with a bag of washing it is. It felt really weird walking definitely uses different muscles to cycling.

Loaded up the machine nothing else to do but sit and wait. Exciting!

Washing washed and tumble dried. We went for breakfast, there was a all you can eat buffet nearby so we tried that. Food was good and yes we definitely over ate. Neither of us wanted coffee so asked for a jug of tap water, they refused. Said they didn’t serve tap water and we would have to buy bottled water. I thought this was strange I’ve never been refused tap water before. Not sure of the law in Canada but I’m pretty sure that that’s not right especially as they served alcohol. Anyway food was good and cheap so we probably will go back tomorrow with our own tap water!

Time to look around and be tourist

As expected the falls are spectacular. We took a boat to have a closer look. They give out ponchos and you most definitely need them. It’s cold and you get soaked but worth it.

So belly’s full, boat ride done we’ve been walking around for ages we decide to go back to the hotel and rest. The falls get illuminated at night so will come out to see later.

The street also comes alive party town.
