High Park and Cherry Blossoms

One more quick post – the other day I decided to test my bike out and head to High Park (about 15 minutes away from where I live at the moment) and check out the cherry blossoms that are meant to be quite popular.

I read about it on a couchsurfing link and decided to go on a whim. The bike ride wasn’t too bad – took the side streets for most of the way there and avoided the main highways (esp. since I dont have a helmet yet (yet! am gonna get one soon))
So yeah… here are the photos. I went straight after work so I was a little tired after I got back but definitely felt better after getting a little exercise (and a shower). Been way too unfit for my liking recently.

Check out my bike! Wooooooo

Toronto Islands

Weather’s been getting way better these days! Definitely affecting my moods now that it’s sunnier and I don’t have to spend the days indoors in my still window-less room. (I have two lamps and a curtain now though so I can at least pretend that there’s yay!)

Me and a group of friends checked out Toronto Island last weekend – been meaning to but didn’t really make sense to go in the cold. Toronto Island’s about 15 – 20 minutes away from the downtown Toronto harbour by ferry – and it only costs 6.50 for a return trip. It was surprisingly peaceful and nature-istic there … might be spending more time over there especially now that I have a bike and can ride away from the crowds!

It was a pretty good day when we went, so we dropped by a sobey’s on the way and bought some barbecue stuff. Also, one of Chuck’s friends, Salom, brought his wife and baby there so the day was filled with baby cuteness. Per this photo:
