a Toronto Whirlwind

a superquick overnight to Toronto with my daughter to pick up left over paintings from my show..a walk to kensington market was in order as the day was balmy and lush

first a stroll down Queen West
the landmark  Cameron hotel..

a competent 3 legged dog..
floral abundance on a side street
quirky colourful Victorian homes
we stopped in a little Thai restaurant in the market..refreshingly yummy

street musicians extraordinaire..

vintage finds galore

even on a Sunday ..Spadina is a sea of people
home made ice cream for dinner..Ed's real scoop on Queen

gelato gelato...

my delicious albeit commercial breakfast..gotta have oatmeal!

classic toes in the city
a couple of gentlemen on a stroll


the stark contrast of mall life...

and then.....home :-)

I'm definitely someone who loves to be in the middle of nowhere (with the appropriate comforts of course), but I do love a regular city fix. Looks like yours was a good one, especially since you were with your favorite person. I haven't been following your blog very long, but long enough to know how dearly you adore your daughter!
