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:

So yea the ferry was cool, not as fancy as the ferry between the North and South Island, but such trips across water are always welcome. An added bonus was the postcard-picture framing of the toronto CN tower and building line as we left for Hanlan’s Point (the easternmost dock on Toronto Island)

Anyway yeah it was tons of fun and sunshine, but it’s still not really summer yet and so it got chilly and windy quite early on. So we didn’t stay for the sunset but maybe next time!
