  • A historic street car in Toronto, ON.
  • Kyle at Off the Hook, the restaurant we ate at during our first evening in Toronto.
  • Riding the streetcar after dinner. I know Robyn enjoyed it too!!
  • A building "shaping the corner" in Toronto as seen on the streetcar (the shaping occurs because the building acknowledges the corner instead of coming to a right angle at it).
  • Toronto's bikeshare system.
  • Art found within the Toronto Subway.
  • Toronto City Hall and Nathan Phillips Square. The design of city hall is to resemble two hands cupping the city. It is illustrated nicely through an areal view.

  • Lunchtime at a park on Lake Ontario in Toronto.

  • And finally a bird that just wanted one potato chip.
  • St. Laurence Market in Toronto, a huge indoor (and seasonally somewhat outdoor) public market.
  • Interesting cityscape in Toronto.
  • The old hotel we stayed in on our second night in Toronto. It was a cute little place run by a family. The only downside was the elevator was down and we were on the sixth floor. Got our exercise for the day at least!
  • A newly-constructed public beach along Lake Ontario in Toronto. It appeared as if it was part of the development of a new condo building just to the left of the picture.
