Grand Island, NY

We are here in/on Grand Island, NY,  for 6 full days and have a lot on our schedule so the posts will be a little more frequent for a bit.  There is so much to do in the Niagara Falls....but not today;)

We started out with a hike in Grand Island along the Niagara River, so close to Canada we could easily have swum over to a Canadian Island:

We can see the city of Niagara Falls, Canada.  The mist in front of the buildings is the mist coming off Horseshoe Falls.

these ducks are headed to Army Island, Canada, so you can see how close we are!

Saw a little wildlife on the trail:)
 Then we drove into Buffalo to visit the Botanical Gardens which will be in a separate post due to the amount of pics:)  On our way to the gardens we passed a beautiful basilica, the basilica of Our Lady of Victory.  It was so ornate on the outside I had to see the inside:

The inside is remarkable!  My pics do not do it justice.

 Later Mike had to check out the birthplace of chicken wings!  Of course!!  It is definitely a fun place and Mike was very happy with the wings:)

Service with a smile!

We had to finish our day with a brew at Resurgence.  Not only did they have a couple of IPAs that Mike liked but they had the first sours we've come across in a while for me to enjoy!
