Take Me Back Tuesday

A Giveaway Addicted Mommy

July 1980
My mother's great-uncle was the driver of the Maid of the Mist on the Canadian side. (I wrote about his brother here on a different take me back post).We had so much fun! We even got to sit in the captain's chair and I got to wear his hat.

Hi Melanie! Wow! What great fun! We went to Niagra as kids and would have given our 'eye teeth', as Momma would have said, to get to ride in the captain's chair! Great pictures; thanks for sharing!!!

Warm hugs..........

Geez. You seem to have such an interesting family who have all done so many fun things. Not everyone can experience what you did; riding on the Maid of the Mist in the captains chair! He looks like a sweetheart.

My son and I went on the Maid of the Mist on the Canadian side as well - Though we didn't get ponchos like you are pictured in. We go flimsy light blue ones that really didn't help too much since as you get closer to the falls it is very windy and it just blew off practically.

Looks like you guys had so much fun!
