Ian’s Dream Came True Today

Today, after what seemed like forever, Ian and I went to the Bow, and had lunch on the 54th floor with my old friend Pearson.

We got downtown early enough to gawk at other buildings, and then we found a bench at the First Tower (1st St and 5th Ave) where we could wait in the shadow of the Bow.

The weather was grey, with rainstorms moving through, but the view was still magnificent.

Here’s a shot of Pearson. We went to UNBC together, back in the day. We both spent a lot of time in the GIS lab there, working with Roger Wheate. Since my move to Calgary, we’ve worked together at Talisman and Cenovus.

Interestingly, Ian wanted to have lunch looking to the east, away from the rest of the skyscrapers. We watched a lightning storm move away, and all the traffic on the arteries and the airport.

After lunch, the sun came out for a while, so I got some more pictures with a little cheerier lighting.
