This was my visit to Toronto in June.
(Except the coffee shops. These seem to change every 6 months. Found some new good ones though - check out ZeZe in Parkdale and Jimmy's Coffee in Kensington.)
The visit to Toronto was our first stop on the "Abandon Ship" Tour. Four months off the boat and into the neighbourhoods (and spare bedrooms) of our loved ones. Today I am feeling rested in a small village outside of Manchester, UK, in the home of one of the Captain's sisters. She took us today to see boats and water, one of our favourite things to do, and we took a boat tour up the Anderton Boat Lift. This is literally an elevator for boats from the river to the canal and vice versa. Very interesting, but we forgot to bring the camera and I meant to write this post about Toronto anyways.
In Toronto, both the Captain and I were overwhelmed by the shear numbers of people and buildings. We still saw occasional sunsets, including this one.
We also had many wonderful, fabulous, excellent meet-ups with friends, and this was one thing - I'm so glad to say - that didn't change at all. I still have awesome friends in Toronto.
|L-R, The Captain, Crew and Nathan - enjoying ourselves, obviously.|
But I had to come to terms with the fact that I am no longer a 'Torontonian' myself, and not likely to become one anytime soon. Sad, but okay. Don't worry, I'll be back soon - like in August, and then again in October...
|It just wouldn't be a post about Toronto without a picture like this one.|
