A couple more.







What a neat place. We didn't really want to deal with going over to the Canadian side but you tell that the falls there are much more impressive. Next time.

No now it's on to Pittsburgh!!

We left Niagra Falls about 1 I think and had to make sure we stopped at the other Buffalo food invention, the Buffalo wing at the Anchor Bar.



The drive to Pittsburgh was about 3 hours and was awesome, one of the prettiest drives I've ever been on. So green, lots of trees and huge farms and ranches. No at all what I expected. I know some of you are probably saying "what?" But remember I'm from San Diego and socal where most of the year it's brown and yucky so this was real treat.

Pittsburgh as well was not what I expected, hilly, green, lots of trees. I don't know where people live here, there are no signs of homes anywhere. We are staying in downtown right across from PNC park and it's just beautiful. I guess I expected industrial, smoke stacks etc. Not like that at all, well at least not coming down the I-79 and I-279.









And that's up to date. We fly to Miami tomorrow.

So as the cruise gets closer if any one wants any pics or questions, let me know.

See y'all tomorrow.

Took a quick stroll down the river this morning. I think Pittsburgh is my new favorite City. Just beautiful!! Obviously a fwd thinking city. Not like the bozos back in San Diego who made the Chargers skip town. ( The owners a bozo too) may just have to become a Steelers fan. (That's Stiller's in Pittsburgh talk)

Whitshel, what do they call that monument in DC that is very modern with the 3 speers? It almost looks like the George Washington monument is in the middle but the two side modern sculptures are new to me (been to DC many times).

Enjoy the EQ. We board on the 4th.

Looking forward to reading your review.

We board the Equinox two weeks from tomorrow. Question....we seem to be of the minority that did not get a drink package....could you please see if there are any type of adult beverage specials?

Bon Voyage!

Pretty uneventful day, left Pittsburgh around 1230, Arrived in Miami at about 330. That airport tho, omg! I feel like we walked a mile just to get to the baggage terminal. We made our way to the Marriott Biscayne Bay, very nice hotel, Pricelined it and ended up on the 24th floor. We dropped our stuff off and took the people movers over to Bayside marketplace, cool place for some shopping, drinks and dinner. Now back at the hotel, just chilling. Its been a long 7 days so far, but the next 7 should be must less active.

Here are a few pics from this afternoon. Let me know if they dont show up, im back on my computer (my eyes are too tired to focus on my phone ) I know I posted therm correctly, so if it doesn't work I know its not me messing up.

I'l be back on tomorrow.

No, can't see them. I don't know the technical ins and outs but I've read that some photo sharing site stopped allowing third parties to see pics. The other ones you posted (after your initial post) showed up fine.
