Mist and sun. Harbourfront, Toronto.

I left the office after six today and walked straight down University, then Lower Simcoe to the Harbourfront to get home.  As soon as I get down to Queens Quay, the smell of the lake is pervasive.  Not surprising, mist was heavy and floating over the harbour and onto the land – really beautiful.

The Empire Sandy, the pretty ship that was once a tug.  More on her here and here. Harbourfront, Toronto.

Beautiful store lights on Danforth Avenue, Toronto.

The main objective of the afternoon was to go to the grocery store and re-stock the pitiful refrigerator, and get things for tomorrow's family dinner.  Walked by way of the Harbourfront on the way home, watched people skate, looked at the water and some of the ships docked there.

Later we took the streetcar to Broadview and Danforth, and had souvlaki in Greektown and walked up the Danforth to Monica's for wine, more food and a game of Mexican Train with a fun bunch.  Got a ride back to Bloor and Spadina and walked home from there.  1:30 or so, fall into bed, tired and full of food.  Blessed.
