Toronto the Good, Part 3: Green Acres
Another reason Toronto rocks is all the green space.
Yep, contrary to popular belief, there is lots of it.
I love cruising down the DVP at night, winding through the huge expanse of green against the backdrop of city lights.
Last year we lived near High Park, a vast woodland covering almost 400 acres. It's especially stunning in the fall:
Just a short ferry ride away are the Toronto Islands a perfect place to enjoy a picnic and some play:
We recently visited Cherry Beach, five minutes away and our new favourite destination. A perfect place to watch the sailboats and soak up some rays:
There are no fewer than five parks in our new 'hood. We usually visit one or another about twice a day. We go early in the morning for some swinging and climbing and Cakes talks to her Chinese lady friends. We like to hit the splashpad in the late afternoon:
I make fun of my "wee" yard, but in truth, I like it that way. Instead of hangin' at home, we get out every day. There are many stay-at-home parents (yep, daddies too) around here and it's never hard to find playmates--for Cakes as well as me.
And the best part? No grass to mow.
America voted, and, tonight.......
warning! spoiler alert!
Dmitri and Martha are not safe.
I think America was right.
Dmitri lost me last night when he tore his shirt off. I did feel bad for him tonight though, when they screwed up and started the closing music when he was about to dance his little heart out.
Natalie should not have been in the bottom two.
Here is my current ranking:
Loved, loved, loved the ghoulish opening number.
Who is this Jean Marc fool! I want Dan back!
