Gotta love them balls! (Travel Theme: Balls)

When visiting Niagara Falls one spring break, as gob-smacking as the fall themselves where, the mist from the falls that had frozen on anything and everything around the falls was just as fascinating.

Most intriguing were the ice-balls that had formed on top of so many of the plants immediately above the falls on the boardwalk. Mother natures very own cake pops!

Balls is this week’s fun Travel Theme from Ailsa over at Where’s My Backpack.

 

 

 

Icy Details (A Photo a Week Challenge: Details)

CAREFUL as you go! (WPC)

With each step we took as we wandered around Niagara Falls, the ice formed from the mist coming off the falls had has being extremely CAREFUL… this week’s Daily Post challenge word.

Careful where you walk!

Not that this ice stopped us at all as it was quite amazing, although at the same time surreal, seeing so many everyday objects encased in ice. It was certainly slow going but most definitely worth the effort!
