If you are within two hours of Toronto, the island is a fantastic day trip.
If you are ever visiting Toronto, be sure not to miss it, it makes for a fun time, with kids and especially without!
Saturday was a perfectly warm day to enjoy a last hurrah at the island before cooler temperatures will be creeping in.
Stopping at a charming parkette to watch 24 swans swimming was both magical and worth the little detour. It is a well-kept secret place and I will share it with anyone interested in seeing it, although, I can’t promise the swans will be there, I can promise a gorgeous view of the Toronto skyline.
Can’t wear fall clothes with temperatures in the mid 20s. My little white cotton sundress that I bought at the CNE was cool and comfortable.
I love wall art anywhere I find it, this one was at a gas station on Lakeshore Boulevard.
We took our bikes which makes exploring the island so much easier and more fun. This is my brand new folding bike. I’ve had my orange one for many years and my new one is a 5 speed. First time riding it, not counting a test drive on my street.
A charming old lighthouse.
I don’t swim in Lake Ontario but wading up to my knees and dancing in the sand is fun.
My new bikini is a wild orange and black tiger print.
Matches my animal print sheer scarf and I dance like no one’s watching, even if they are.
The view of the CN Tower is spectacular.
Sunday was another warm day, a glorious weekend, so we decided to take advantage of it and drove to Lake Erie (another fabulous day trip) that I’ll tell you about next time. The great lakes are so big that they look like an ocean. My visitors from Germany are always amazed at the size.
