October 2017 - Another Toronto Adventure

I was actually working in Toronto in October 2017 when Prince Harry had his first public date with Meghan at the Invictus Games. I was just a hair too late to be in the dating line up. HA HA!

Around that time I enjoyed another great adventure when I was in Toronto.  It was a visit to the CN Tower. The group I was working with took me out for a great night on the town! We went on a tour of the CN Tower and then had dinner in the 360 Restaurant which is on the very top and spins around while you eat!! It was so beautiful and a really awesome view of the city of Toronto!

 Here is a picture of the CN Tower from below...it is so high! It is over 1,800 feet high! The CN Tower held the record for the world's tallest free-standing structure for 32 years until 2007 and was the world's tallest tower until 2009 being overtaken by Burj Khalifa and Canton Tower, respectively.  It is now the ninth tallest tower in the world and remains the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere. In 1995, the CN Tower was declared one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.


Here is a video of the ride up...soooo fun!!!

There is a glass floor at the top that you can lay on ...this is my photo as I laid on the glass floor.

Another looking down at my feet!

And another...

This is our whole group! I was blessed to meet and work with some many great people in Canada! It was so much fun and we enjoyed the picture with the moose in the lobby! HA

If you ever get a chance to visit Toronto - you should definitely stop in at the CN Tower! It was an amazing experience! I would have loved to do the Edgewalk (where you go outside and walk around the whole tower up on the top!) but it was closed the night we were there :-(

I hope you all have a great day! Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my travels!

Anyone every been to the CN Tower? Do you like heights? Do you enjoy adrenaline activities?
