My Adventures in Toronto for the Red Maple Celebration

 
 
I spent the weekend with friends in Toronto before the Red Maple celebrations started.
We ate out in wonderful little restaurants.
We went to Wychwood Market, housed in a lovely old brick Toronto Transit building, where I treated myself to a fabulous brownie.
I went to a CD store in Yorkville and did my bit for the Ontario economy.
We went to a play at Tarragon theatre, saw the Picasso exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario, and heard the world-famous pianist Emmanuel Ax play at the Royal Conservatory.
We took the street car, the bus, the subway.
I love the little neighbourhoods that are scattered everywhere in Toronto. The lilacs in bloom, the cherry trees and violets. Such an enormous and enormously busy city, says the gal from Halifax.
