lead the outdoor tour

Guided people on a walking tour of the David Dunlap Observatory. We looked at the radio shack and radio tour, discussed Dr MacRae's achievements in radio astronomy. I shared other buildings made in the GTA by the same architects as the administration building. We found the cornerstone, learned who laid it and when.

We checked out the Elms Lea house, from a safe distance, found the old Observatory Lane, and learned other interesting facts about the DDO and the grounds. I think everyone enjoyed it. I was pleased to arrive on time at the steps of the admin building to hand off to Karen, for her indoor tour.
