My mom and grandmother took my brother and me to the CNE in Toronto when we were young. That was my first time in this huge amusement park, no pictures but lots of fond memories. Since then, I’ve had numerous adventures there and on this occasion I went with my oldest son and his family (my grandchildren) and visitors from Germany.
I wore a yellow tee and white capris, simple and summery.
The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE, also simply called The EX) is an annual event in Toronto, during the last three weeks of August, always ending on Labour Day. It kinda wraps up the summer holidays, as school and work starts again, even though it’s still summer on the calendar.
Besides midway rides there’s lots to do and shop and see. Entertainment everywhere all throughout the day. We stopped to listen to a jazz performance on a sidewalk cafe setting. Music makes me feel like dancing, so I did and to my surprise, Enrico Galante gifted me with his CD It’s Never Too Late For Sax. It felt like I was back in my Go-Go days!
The sand castles …
Rock balancing …
All part of a fun day with memories to last a lifetime.
Thinking of summer gives me hope that it will return again.
