John Smith, following his disappointing photographic shoot this afternoon in Niagara Falls, went out again tonight to try to find the Mystery Blonde and solve the mystery surrounding her.
His photographs from this afternoon, when developed, had suffered damage from the spray coming from the Horseshoe Falls.
John made his way back to the Horseshoe Falls when darkness fell, hoping to find the Mystery Blonde viewing the Falls lit up a night, which is a very popular pastime of visitors to Niagara Falls. Even moreso on the Winter when the Falls are FROZEN.
He walked backwards and forwards amongst the tourists, searching for the Mystery Blonde, with no success.
John took some time out to visit one of the many Souvenir Shops close to the Falls and decided to buy a few souvenirs to take home to his family.
He bought a tiny pair of moccasins, beaded and fringed of course, for his youngest daughter, and a miniature tomohawk for his 5 yr. old son.
For his wife he chose a bottle of pure maple syrup and some beaded earrings hand-made by native Americans (or so it said on the label).
John was paying for his purchases at one of the checkouts when he saw, who he believed to be, the Mystery Blonde paying for HER souvenirs at a checkout two aisles down from his.
He became a little impatient as he thought she would finish paying for her souvenirs and disappear into the night before he had time to pay for his purchases.
John was in luck for one of the few times in his life, the till roll at the Mystery Blonde's checkout, ran out and had to be replaced.
John breathed a sigh of relief. He paid for his purchases, not taking his eye off the Mystery Blonde for more than a second or two.
He followed her out of the Souvenir Shop and watched as she headed for the Skylon Tower. He had wanted to visit the Skylon Restaurant himself as he had heard such great things about the views. Therefore he followed the Mystery Blonde with his heart beating and his pulse racing for more than one reason.
The Mystery Blonde was way ahead of him in line so they didn't get to share the same elevator. However, when he reached the revolving restaurant, he found himself being seated four tables behind her. Unfortunately he only had a view of the back of her head once again.
The meal was a 'set' meal which came with the price of riding the elevator to the top of the rotating tower.
John knew SHE couldn't go anywhere for a while so he settled down to enjoy the view and his meal. He set his camera down on the ledge to his left and set it to take a photograph every 45 seconds. This would give him a great set of photographs at the end of one hour, which is how long it takes the Skylon to complete one full turn.
