I chose a picture from our summer vacation when we went on the Maid of the Mist boat at Niagara Falls. I had forgotten how much fun writing like this could be, and decided I would make myself write one capture the moment experience every month from the photos I have on my computer. Here is my first installment, written in front of 2nd graders.
|Me on the Maid of the Mist - Niagara Falls|
I heard lots of giggles and nervous chatter as we waited for the boat to move. Across the river happy, wet people waved at us as they came back form their trip to the Falls.
The boat moved forward and I saw the Bridal Veil Falls and the hundreds (maybe thousands) of seagulls. We got to the Horseshoe Falls and the boat swayed drunkenly in the churning river. I couldn't hear my husband talking over the crashing water. By the time we turned to go back, I was soaked!
What a ride!
