Checking back into the blog this morning it became apparent that when publishing the blog Sunday morning we forgot to press "share" and the post made yesterday shows Sunday for the date.

All seven of us headed down to Calgary Sunday morning for brunch at the Calgary Tower restaurant high above most of the city. The tower was built in 1967 by utilizing a continuous pour of concrete for 24 days. That little piece of trivia is for all the engineers reading our blog. The restaurant revolves around the tower giving the diners a 360 degree panoramic view of the city and the Canadian Rockies in the distance. Don't forget to check out Angie's blog for additional information on our adventure.  We try not to duplicate her with our blog.
Here is a view down through the glass floor.
A view of the downtown business district.
Yours truly.
How do you get this darn credit card to work?
Let us have it and we will show you!
After checking out the observation deck below the restaurant we made our way up to claim our table. The views had us entertained until our food arrived. Here is a shot looking away from the city proper.
Paula decided not to have breakfast and ordered a burger. When her choice arrived we were all quite shocked at the height of the burger. Seems the staff has a sense of humor and makes their burgers to imitate the tower.
After exploring the historic district we all returned to our vehicles and separated into girls in one and boys in the other. The girls had a little shopping to do and us guys decided to make our way over to the site of the 1988 Winter Olympics. If you checked Angie's blog you know that Tom and Craig challenged each other on the luge run. Of course the luge run had no ice on it and the cars are wheeled. Tom and Craig wanted to take Van and I over and shame us with their skills. They may have shamed me but not Van. Here is a shot of the course from the chair lift and a shot of Van. He is going to kill me for posting this photo of him in the goofy green helmet.
Today is a travel day and we are continuing the journey north.
