FF – Room With A View

Room With A View

We couldn’t afford a fancy honeymoon suite so opted for “Double room with views of Niagara Falls”. Which meant an infinity sight of the top river flowing into mist, with a heavy sideline in parking lot.
“Double” was a push too, for the bed where we huddled like hamsters, lest we fall into the “bedroom spa” – which looked a lot like a bathtub they hadn’t managed to fit into the bathroom.

We stayed three nights after the wedding, united in adversity and finding comfort in each other’s company. Perhaps it was the best kind of honeymoon suite after all.

  1. The not so perfect, perfect honeymoon. Love it!

  2. Being together is all that matters. Nicely told

  3. A make or break honeymoon.

  4. Bedroom spa made me laugh. A honeymoon they won’t forget though, and that’s the main thing!

  5. Perhaps it was just right for honeymooners! When I stayed at Niagara the bed was HUGE!

  6. This honeymoon augurs well for their future together. They discovered the essential. Lovely story.

  7. This bodes well for the marriage methinks!

  8. They made the best of a not so ideal situation. Good for them.

  9. Sounds like a honeymoon that will be memorable, with lots of stories and laughter later on. Good one!

  10. Alone in each others company, I don’t think it matters where you are does it?

  11. A low budget Niagara Falls honeymoon used to be quite the clichรฉ, though I havenโ€™t heard of it in ages. This was close to what I pictured ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • It’s funny, when we moved to Toronto, it was the first time we heard that Niagara was the “honeymoon capital of the world”. Almost like some local tourism committee made it up!

      • I grew up in the Cleveland area but don’t live there any more, so that may be why it was such a big thing when I was kid. Cleveland isn’t quite as close as Toronto, but pretty close…

  12. Well, sounds very honey-moony to me … ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. Sounds real cozy to me and big enough… Cute story they will laugh about and share for years to come.

  14. That’s how memories are made – sometimes, anyway. Sweet story!

    Ha, the way they got through this is a good sign for their marriage. Whenever something goes wrong, they only need to remember.

  16. Dear Jen,

    Sounds like the kind of memories you look back on 50 years later and laugh. My husband and I have many of those. Very sweet story.



  17. They’ll have a great story to tell for the rest of their lives ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Just think of all the people who will be in awe of their honeymoon story.
    Hey, from lemons and all that … memories will be their reqrd for the horror of it all. Have a wonderful weekend,
    Be Safe ๐Ÿ˜ท โ€ฆ Isadora ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    ps – I went to Niagara Falls. Mesmerizing and grand …

  19. The term compact and bijou came to mind while reading this! Nice one.

    My story!

  20. A saucy FF story – we don’t get many of those! Nice one, Elmo!

  21. It was the perfect test of their relationship! If they could survive that without killing each other, the rest would be a walk in the park!

  22. A little bit of adversity brings people together, if they are meant to be together of course. Nicely told.
