If you have seen one, you have not seen them all.
When I was a teenager, I spent a week on a 2,000 acre ranch in Colorado one summer. I called home, to see if I could stay on an extra week and discovered that my parents had taken advantage of the kids being out of town, to take a vacation. They had flown a private airplane to Niagara Falls with Cousin Bill and his "Wife of the Year." He had several of them, you needed a score card to keep track. I returned home, and then heard the story of the "Wife" and Niagara Falls. They landed on the New York side, looked a the view, then started to take a taxi to the Canadian side to see the other side. Said Wife is forever quoted as saying, "can't we just go shopping, if you have seen one falls, you have seen them all!"
The top picture is the Pacific Coast in California, the bottom picture is the Atlantic coast in Florida. So different, I have so many more oceans to see.

So not true. While in both Argentina and Costa Rica both had some of the most picturesque falls I'd ever seen. I too loved Niagara when I saw it.ReplyDelete

Oh, groan. I had a cousin who came to San Diego with her husband while we were living there. They got in touch when they were in town and we went out to dinner. She proceeded to ask me what there was to do there (they had done absolutely no research before their trip). Coronado is beautiful, I explained. Eh, just another place with beaches and shopping, my cousin replied. The zoo and wild animal park are amazing, i said. Eh, ya seen one bear ya seen em all, she said. I'm sure she wouldn't have given Niagara Falls a second look.ReplyDelete
Indeed! Ocean views are quite various. I want to see some in Norway.ReplyDelete
