Thanksgiving Walk

Thanksgiving day we went for a little hike to walk off the turkey dinner we at the day before.  We headed out to Frog Pond then walked around the paths and crossed over to Sir Sandford Fleming Park also known as The Dingle…and what do you know The Dingle was open.

I was all hyped up; gotta go in and get to the top…but my fear of heights got the best of me…on the first spiral stairwell I go up halfway up before I turned around. I was like if I can make it to the next level should be fine the stairs are wider and I wont be able to see down…so up we go.  Got to the second spiral staircase and started up then lost it…huge panic attack.  I made Brian walk me over to the wall so I could lean up against it while he went up and looked out the tower and take some pictures. I didn’t really think at the time he was taking a photo of me; I may have extend my middle finger. 😉

Then we headed down and I’m still nervous; we finally get to the first spiral staircase I start panicking and talking to myself.  What am I gonna do? What am I gonna do?  Brian was like your going down the stairs cause I’m not carrying you…down we went one hand on the rail and the other holding his; I don’t know if you know how narrow those spiral stairs are but they aren’t made for two people walking down at once.

I had been to the top before doing a trash the dress photo shoot but for some reason my mind wasn’t up for it that day. I had it happened too when we were in New York and went to the Brooklyn Bridge I had the death grip on poor Brian’s hand . ❤
