I have to share that we received an unbelievable kindness along our way home ... we were given a brand new camera! I still shake my head with disbelief when I think about it. After having had some pretty bad luck with cameras the past couple years, it was such an incredible, unexpected surprise! Needless to say, I had a great time taking pictures with it at Niagara Falls.
