This tower is my favourite building in this city. I have not been able to figure out why. It just is. Yesterday I paid a long overdue visit. ๐Ÿ™‚ A perfect fall day, a 2 hour walk to get to the Tower and then joy!

That and knowing we are in Canada and the testing to ensure it is safe will be in place everyday. ๐Ÿ™‚ The first time though, I did freak out like every first timer who tries.

Looking down at the new kid in town…..

A classic bucket list-er. Here is my favourite YouTube video from when this attraction openedย  – Rick Mercer and Jann Arden trying the the EdgeWalk.ย  Priceless!!

A group of brave souls doing the “Toes over Toronto” part of the walk yesterday.. and then the turn your back and “Butt over the city” (don’t recall what the official name is) part…
