Bears big holiday  


Cute furry bear



Sarah goes on a tour of America...

The next day Charlie drove the bus from New York to Niagara Falls. This is a very long way so they had to keep stopping. Sarah was glad because she didn't like sitting still for too long at once.


The coach drove over the Rainbow Bridge at Niagara Falls. Sarah had to get off the coach to show her passport. This was because she was visiting a new country, Canada. It was then a very short drive to the hotel.

When Sarah entered the hotel room, she was very surprised. The room was enormous!! It had two sofas and two TVs. Sarah looked out of the window and she could see Niagara falls. They are two huge waterfalls.


In the evening, Sarah had dinner in a posh restaurant. There was lots of food that she could choose and she was allowed to eat as much as she wanted. Sarah decided to tell Sophie all about it when she got home because there were lots of cakes and sweets.

Sarah watched the falls from the window of the restaurant as she ate dinner. It was very beautiful. When it was dark, big lights lit up the waterfalls in different colours.


After such a long day, Sarah needed a nice bath before bedtime. Mrs Keen had to help Sarah because the bath was very deep. She said it was a jacuzzi. Sarah wasn't sure what a jacuzzi was. She soon found out when she pressed a special button and the water started bubbling. Sarah started laughing as the bubbles tickled her fur!! "That was fun!" she said when she finally got out of the bath.


The next morning they went to see some rapids. Sarah could see the water moving very fast. Mrs Keen told her that the rapids were dangerous and some people had drowned. Sarah enjoyed watching the cable car going across the river.


Sarah got up early today. She was excited about going on a boat. Sarah was given a plastic mac to wear to stop her getting wet. The boat took her up the river towards the waterfalls. At first she went upstairs on the boat but it was very busy and she couldn't see. Downstairs, she had a good view and did not get as wet. As they got near to the waterfall, the boat was full of water. Lots of people were very wet.


On the way back on the boat, Sarah saw this beautiful rainbow. She had never seen a rainbow before. Mrs Keen explained that it is made by the sun shining on the water droplets. Do you know what colours are in a rainbow?

Parent's Note

Sarah stayed at the Oakes overlooking the falls at Niagara Falls. She went shopping via the shoppers shuttle (ask your concierge) to the USA side of the falls - much cheaper than the Canadian side. Ask your concierge about shuttles - a lot of the main hotels run shuttles between the different areas of Niagara falls.

Must dos: Maid of the Mist, Walk down to by Table Rock - you can stand level with the Canadian falls and look at the edge. Both of these get you soaked! For adults - the buffet at the Sheraton (the one by Rainbow bridge) is also highly recommended. for special occasions. For children - Rainforest cafe is great. Sarah liked looking at the animated elephants!
