A toast to The Beach

This past Saturday we finally made it over to Toronto's slice of paradise, The Beach.

Home to a wonderful boardwalk along the Lake Ontario shoreline, opened in 1932, The Beach is also stocked full of Victorian and Edwardian era houses tightly packed along gorgeous tree-lined streets. The main street, Queen Street East, is mostly chock full of quirky independent stores.

We checked out Ends, which is sort of like a version of Phase 2 for my Kingston friends, and a great store called Binz, which is completely devoted to organizing and storing things. Their motto is "Think inside the box". I rather like that! We also stopped in at Seagull Classics, a handsome furniture and lighting store.

But mostly, we went to The Beach neighbourhood to take in its namesake, the long beach and inviting stroll along the waterfront on a hot and humid summer day.
