After what felt like a REALLY long time we finally got rain in the city. Aaah! Still muggy but this was much needed.
I think this has been the best Fall in ages! It started slowly and has hung around unlike previous years. And the colours are just amazing. Didn’t have to go far to see them either. I am glad we get to experience and enjoy the four seasons every year.
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. 🙂 A perfect fall day, a 2 hour walk to get to the Tower and then joy!
Standing on the famous CN Tower Glass Floor. I have stood on this so many times now, that there is no feeling of fear. That and knowing we are in Canada and the testing to ensure it is safe will be in place everyday. 🙂 The first time though, I did freak out like every first timer who tries.
Looking down at the new kid in town…..
Now that there are other much taller buildings on the planet, the CN Tower came up this attraction in 2011 – EdgeWalk!! It is a heart stopping, mind blowing and totally awesome experience. A classic bucket list-er. Here is my favourite YouTube video from when this attraction opened – Rick Mercer and Jann Arden trying the the EdgeWalk. 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…
That’s me on the EdgeWalk. Luckily it was a cloudy day for most part, but there were moments of clarity – both for the weather and for me wondering what I had just signed myself and my family for!! I still have the hope to try the walk on a clear sunny day….
I have doomed myself to unending joy – if that is possible – by falling in love with croissants. In all shapes, not sizes though. I actually bought one last year from a bakery that was the size of small football!! Jeez! And yes, I did consume the entire thing over 4 plus hours. It was an almond croissant, what can I say!
I hope to keep adding other examples of deliciousness to this post as I move through the next few month. With spring coming soon – HA! – there will even more opportunities for me to ogle, drool, indulge and oh so enjoy many more of these beauties.
