As mentioned in the comments on the last post, we're now in Toronto. We're staying in a B&B in beautiful and historic Cabbagetown, and just spent a couple of hours on a tourist walk, gawking at the parks and the amazing real estate ... followed by drinks on the way back. It's relaxing here, and it's great to be enjoying summer at a time of year when the weather back home is miserable.

Will post somewhat intermittently on random touristy topics for the next days, I expect.

Welcome to TO Russell! I hope you enjoy your brief stay.

I assume you have access to all the information you need here. If not just let me know and I'll try to help you. I live in Mississauga

Thanks, Robert. Pity we're passing through so quickly this time. Would have been good to stop longer and arrange to catch up with friends. Oh well, next time.
