Ramblings from Toronto

They have a sculpture in this little garden that is made from clingfilm and is a big web that catches all the light.

I think this is an old fashioned steamer type boat but we were on the new fashioned ferry when I saw it so I'm not 100% sure what it is.

The same boat pulling into Hanlan's point on the Toronto Islands.

This is a the distillery district about 10 minutes down the road from us on the Esplanade. It's historic in Canadian terms and has a great brewery with a pub to showcase it's many tasty beers.

My favourite coffee shop, also in the distillery district, there was an excellent blues band on a stage outside last Sunday for no obvious special reason. I've taken to drinking coffee iced here as it's generally to hot to contemplate anything warmer than that.

We were taken out for drinks at the bar with the highest patio and ther's a pretty good view from up there.

As you can see we've been enjoying having a little more time together to get out and explore the city. Despite our best efforts the condo is still pretty empty: Chil's been scouring the city for furniture bargains but I wish that the sofa we'd bought had fitted through the door!

Congratulations to Eva on his new job at IBM!

I hope all is well with all who reads this.

Glad to see that you're finding your way around the distillery district! Coffee shop? Hmm. Toronto looks really stunning; or is it your photography? Hope everything is going well for you both.
