What a difference a day makes! Woke up this morning and it's pouring rain and foggy. We seem to be travelling just ahead of a "tornedic" front. New word and I don't know how to spell it!

On the road and it's pouring and the traffic is moving very slowly, which is probably better in these conditions.

Arrived in Toronto. It is a really nice, clean city. It is full of sky scraper apartment buildings and a lot of very modern buildings in the city.

We went to the Eaton Centre for lunch and I had a lovely salad. Then back on the bus for our optional tour to the CN building, the tallest tower in the world. Tower, not building. That would be the Burj Kalif in Dubai.

The views are stunning. We were lucky that it had stopped raining by the time we went up the top because we had great views of Toronto. There is a glass floor section but unfortunately the photos don't really show how scarey it was. Amazingly I felt okay walking on it but Phil went a bit weak at the knees. I actually lay down on it but the photo isn't that clear.

We went for a dinner cruise this evening on Toronto Harbour. As usual, when we go on harbour cruises, it was raining and we all got wet boarding the boat. Some clever people had umbrellas. The cruise went from 7.00 pm to the10.00 pm and we had a buffet dinner and dancing. We had dinner with Gerald, Halina and Yasmin. Everyone had a pretty good time. The Toronto skyline is really quite lovely. Early start tomorrow, so it's off to bed.
