It’s the Game Myst, IRL

Do you remember the computer game Myst?

It was a big deal game… oh wait wait…. it was a game changer ahahaha.

But it was, it propelled CD-ROM sales. It also really got under my skin, and remains to this day one of the few games I’ve bothered to complete.

Technically this is a water treatment plant… that washes half of Toronto’s water daily!

Did you know Toronto’s tap water is some of the best in the world? Vancouver’s is really good too.

This weekend was Doors Open Toronto, and this is the RC Harris Water Treatment Plant.

It’s neeeever open to the public (or blog girls with big smiles) … that’s why I went. Along with the whole city; parking took forEVER.

Designed in 1929 and opened in 1941, it’s applauded as Toronto’s “supreme masterwork of Art Deco building”. So beautiful, eh?!

This place is special, I’m telling you.  Go for a walk there if you ever can.

I’ve blogged about this place many times, and I filmed the episode Exploring Canadian Blogging here.

And this other time I filmed myself skipping around here in a tutu, ha.
