outside all day

It's a full day, and pretty much all of it is spent outside.  I have a bike ride while Ceri goes off to the office for a little while.  Later we hook up with Kelsey at David Pecaut Square for a free Kathleen Edwards show, part of the Luminato festival.  Then we walk though the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood and have a snack on the patio under the Gooderham (Flatiron) Building.   After that we walk down to Sugar Beach for the Toronto Wine and Spirits Festival.  We bump into my friend Kerri and her friend Nikki.  It's a great night, we wander around, sample foods and drinks, and sit near the water chatting until the place closes up.  Walk home quite late and fall asleep pretty much immediately.

Getting to spend summer in Toronto – beautiful thing number ninety-one.

This little one enjoyed the show, having a little dance and tapping her foot now and then.

I liked how the shape of the fountain mimics the shape of the St. James church spire.

At the 1000 Tastes of Toronto – I loved the long table with the floral arrangements, for people to sample the food offerings from various restaurants.  We had some terrifuc samples, great event and great location.

Later, walking on Front Street. I take a picture of this Canadian Opera Company building every time I walk by it.

Today we hook up with Carly and go to the 1000 Tastes of Toronto event at the Distillery District, more Luminato fun.

The ever-charming headliner. Terrific performer, I loved every song.

The city behind the stage, and the fun windsock art that twirled occasionally through the night.

After work I meet up with Ceri and my girls for a patio dinner, then we drop off our stuff at my place and head up to David Pecaut Square to see K'naan play a free show for the start of the Luminato festival.  Great evening all around.  Happy Friday.
