Day 1

So, our first full day...after a very good night's sleep, albeit a very early wake for some with the time difference we began the day by wishing for what we may get for breakfast - unlimited quantities of stacks of bacon with maple syrup, Danish pastries, fresh fruit, juice etc. Imagine our elation when we arrived at the dining room and every wish was fulfilled. Charged and ready to go we began the day proper with the big game - the Toronto blue jays versus the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers just pipped it in the last couple of innings by which time some of us had just about worked out what was going on! We followed this with "the tower experience" at the CN tower - whisked like VIPs past the 2 hr general entry queue into our own lifts to the 'top of the world' to see the amazing views over Toronto and Lake Ontario. Many overcome their vertigo to walk on the glass floor 350m up. Quite a drop down. We then rushed to Downtown Toronto for supper at the Hard Rock Cafe, followed by an impromptu dance in the square where what our waiter described as a "small town rapper" was performing. Everyone exhausted again now and in bed. Looking forward to tomorrow...
