  • I had read about the healing and calming effect of the mist so I was eager to board the boat. As I was handed the blue plastic raincoat for protection against the water spray, I knew I was in for an adventure.

    Soon, the Maid of the Mist boat at the Niagara Falls started its cruise through the swirling waters. As we got closer to the falls, I became tensed. I came face to face with the falls. I could hear the waters roar. I closed my eyes and submitted totally as I soaked in every splash of the waterfall.
