So Long, and Thanks For All The Fish

A Ship in Harbour

A part of Toronto since I've lived in the city was towed away today.  I think it was inevitable and will support waterfront development overall but sad to see the Jadran leave all the same.  I'm glad Captain John Letnik was able to be on board for the boat's final trip to the scrapyard.  Captain John says, "We’re going to have a party".  See The Star for the full story.  Safe sailing and thanks for all the fish.

A Matter of Perspective

A Matter of  Perspective

Dudley was happy to get back to the Palace of Purification on the weekend.  It's been a long, cold winter and it was great to get back to the beach.  The Palace has been undergoing renovations for the last year or so and is looking particularly good these days.

Automatic Sprinkler Co. of America

Automatic Sprinker Co. of America

Due to some laneway construction at the Distillery District, I had to look for an alternative route to find my way to Pikto and passed by this cool old guage in one of the few spots you can find a way into the alley.

Red of Winter

Red of Winter

One of five winning Winter Stations Design submissions out of just under 200 entries (incorporating an existing lifeguard stand) produced by over 400 people from 36 countries around the world.  The entry is called, Sling Swing and was created by Ed Butler, Dan Wiltshire & Frances McGeown.  You can actually swing on the slings.  I arrived just before sunrise and had the installation and the cold beach to myself (and yes, I did go for a swing).

Black Ice

Black Ice

I finally ventured down to the lake to see what "ice monsters" had formed.  It was chilly but beautiful and worth the trip.

Snow Day

Snow Day

Thanks to 8-9 inches of fresh snow, slippery conditions on the Parkway, and a near full moon, my 30 minute morning commute extended to 2 hours today.  Thankfully, the return trip home was less eventful.

The Naked City

The Naked City

Like others, I was fascinated by the brief glimpse into lives previously lived in this partially demolished building in Regent Park.
