Today was just a fun day for me.
I rode my bike and took pictures all over Toronto. The fun began as soon as I left home! Snicker! Just as I was passing the bus stop here, a gaggle of women got off the bus and they ALL proceeded to open umbrellas. Now I know that a lot of folks do that to protect themselves from the sun, but they just all did it, all at once. Amused me!!! Snap snap! Of course, getting around them was another matter…. !
It started with a rally at Queen’s Park – against the G20… there was music but best of all – there were bubbles!!! It was a *blow bubbles for peace* kind of event! How I enjoyed that! Let me tell you! lol I just happen to have bubbles in my backpack! lol And I’m always looking for a reason to blow them! Heh. Some activist singers and some poetry written especially for the rally. And a lot of smiles. 🙂
Oh, an umbrella themed day! lol
I really wanted a picture of the juicy bumblebee..but he kept flying off! lol
A Bubble - Oh Yes!
Queen's Park - Quite an impressive old building
G20 - Inquiry!
I have mountains of pix…so I’ll move on to my next adventure. lol
The next item of interest that caught my eye was TWO police cars parked on BIKE lanes!!! On opposite sides of the street – at the same time! I could NOT believe my eyes! And there were two officers just standing under a tree beside their car – bikers had to veer out into traffic to get around them! Pfft…. can I arrest them??? Please? lol
Dirty rotten coppers. lol Parked ON the bike path, and standing under a tree watching bikers go around!
From there I went to see if the Salad King was reopened. Several months ago the wall fell off the building… it’s a fave eating place of my friend’s and mine… and I dare say, many many others. Well, we were going to get together and eat there…but alas, there is no way. lol
Next on the menu…. was Front Street and Church Street… this is an historical building – the Flatiron building… and I love it! My friend and I were discussing it recently – so I got some pix for her. 🙂

From here I meandered over to Eastern Ave… and got some pix of the Sun building… and some graffiti…. and then guess what? Right back to the Distillery District…apparently I’m not done with them yet. lol
Not sure why, but I love how this pic came out. 🙂 And the next one! They don’t really show the district, but I love them best. 🙂
Watering Can. lol
Oh, you thought I was done, didn’t you? LOL Oh no… next it was Sumach and Queen area… this is a building that has three apartments. It’s almost on top of a busy highway…which you can see in the background. If only the ad wasn’t there.. sure takes away from it. 🙂
Sumach and Queen area
And last, but not least…. to end the day with some pizzazz! lol Here was our night sky… makes you feel you are in a desert somewhere. Just glorious! All day the sun gave me some spectacular shots. 🙂
