Magic in the Mist

Location: Niagara Falls

Scene: A Husband and Wife have faced the rain in order to experience Niagara Falls together (she'd been, he hadn't). Their SIL was watching their most adorable one year old and they were enjoying some alone time that DIDN'T include doctors. As they looked over the amazing falls, Phil contemplated the deep mysteries of the earth. Heidi, on the other hand, enjoyed the mixture of mist and rain falling upon her face and hair.

The couple next approached their trusty aqueous vessel, The Maid of the Mist. As they did so, they gleefully held hands. Alone in their bliss, their solitude was abruptly interrupted by an elderly employee of the company who so ably relieved tourists of their funds. We will call this kindly man, "Bob."

Bob: "You know, there is magic in the mist."
Heidi: "huh?"
Bob: "Yes, there are more ions being charged in the middle of that mist than anywhere else on earth."
Phil: "Interesting."
Bob: "That's right, you two just keep holding hands and you'll feel the magic in the mist. You might even feel inclined to get a little more cozy. You might even kiss."
Heidi: "Alrighty then, thanks for the info."

In preparation for the magic in the mist, the couple donned the appropriate attire:

Off they went, resolute, determined, hands held, into the mist.

There was magic in the mist!

the end.

This all sounds very familiar. We were at Niagara last Saturday looking as soaked as you look. And, ahhhhhh the magic. :)

No Way! Saturday is the day we were there. Seriously, I can't believe we were there the same day. Too bad we didn't run into you guys, that would have been fun.

CRAZY! We (the two of you and ourselves) were possibly the only english speaking people there and yet we didn't see each other. I love that there are people from all over the world there.

The MAJOR rain started 5 minutes after we threw our Maid of the Mist ponchos away. Funny.

I loved the story. Brought tears to my eyes. I'm a sucker for magical moments.
