One thing that is happening when you walk on the promenade to the Canadian falls at Niagara is that at one point you’ll get soaked. And even if you are folded in a rain cover your pants would be completely wet even if you go there for a moment to take just a couple of photos.
The spray from the waterfall is not like rain but as a mass of water in which you get immersed. And when this happens in November with the snow of the ground and temperature around freezing even on a rainbowy sunny day, you cannot but question your decision to go and take that photo. The previous evening because of well under freezing temperatures the spray did not look so bad because it resembled an ice rain that somehow did not soak you completely.
And this is what actually happened with me during the day, soaked by the waterfall spray in no time like I were under sheets of rain. Drenched! But surprisingly, in spite of the cold weather, after probably about half an hour the pants were almost dry and the uncomfortable feeling went away.
Luckily not the same happens when you are around the American Falls where it was pleasant and dry.
So to get away from the drenching feeling we drove about 15 miles to Niagara on the Lake, a charming town on the shore of Lake Ontario with a very British atmosphere and remarkable shops and restaurants, probably the best place to visit in the area beside the spectacular waterfalls.
