Our Trip to Niagara Falls Part 2

We spent the second day in the city of Toronto, about 2 hours from Niagara.
One of our stops was the Casa Loma Castle, which we toured. The tiny people in the photo are Emily and Mama Flo! : )
We took a one-hour cruise around the Toronto Islands in this ship, the Oriole.
This is the Toronto skyline from the ship.

That evening we rode the train back to Niagara.
Dinner at Betty's Restaurant
Another view of the falls ... ... and some seagulls! There were hundreds of them around the falls. Seeing Niagara Falls in person reminded me of Psalm 8.
"When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained ...
...What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!"
