Pool Boy

We were delighted to see an announcement in our lobby recently that our condo's pool, hot tub, and sauna were ready for use. Mark has taken advantage of our marquee amenity and has been swimming every morning. Good for him! I went down one day while he was doing laps and took a few shots of the pool area (click on images to enlarge).

Panorama Sunday

We had the oldest child of longtime friends of Mark's over for dinner Sunday evening and he took this great panoramic shot of our view of the city. Thought I would share it with you...

On the Waterfront

On our way to explore the Polish Festival this past Sunday, we stumbled across a pedestrian bridge that crosses over the Gardiner Expressway and Lakeshore Boulevard and takes strollers right to the waterfront in an area of the city called Sunnyside. We had never been to this area before and we took a few photos of the boardwalk that connects into the huge waterfront trail system that crosses the entire Toronto shoreline.

Photo Essay: St. Lawrence Market

Classic view of inside of the main entrance
So many choices
At the intersection of bagels and meats
When you need the upper cut!

We took advantage of the lovely, yet crisp, weather to take a trip over to St. Lawrence Market, recently ranked the #1 food market in the world by National Geographic. We enjoyed lots of samples, bought some bagels, and enjoyed the hustle and bustle of one of the great gems of Toronto.
