Thank you very much, Carolina and Terry, I appreciate the comments and kind words. Actually Carolina the tower is quite safe. On a really windy day, the top of the tower (where the observation tower) is sways 6-7 fee,t but you don't notice at all. Thanx again everyone, and aslo anyone that I might have missed - your good friend, Allan

Skillfully created, Allan!!! I don't have to worry about being in that tower, especially when it "sways". My horrendous case of vertigo won't let me go up there (LOL!!)! Another great job, my friend!
Much Aloha,
Stan

Stanley, my dear friend, I know that you would never go up this tower. The only way to the top is by elevator and it has one open side (glassed in of course) so one can watch the whole journey as you accend. Also there is a couple areas where there is a glass floor where one can stand and see the ground about 1,500 fett below you, so you have no fears of ever seening any of that. Thank you very much, Stan, my very dear friend - Allan
