summer sunday, full, sunny, perfect

A full weekend.  Family, food, music, bikes, sun…  A few images from a busy Sunday all over the place.

We take a morning bike ride and meet up with Sean in the Beaches for brunch on the Lion's beautiful patio. They were saying the weather would be horribly hot, but we're thinking it's wonderful; hazy yes, but summery breezes are gorgeous.

Along the way we meander around a path I'd not been on before. The hazy view of these boats sing "vintage" at me and I have to stop and shoot.

We enjoyed yesterday so much, we nip back to the 1000 Tastes of Toronto festival too hook up with Mia and Sam, and for an afternoon snack. This lady in fuschia was tasting some little vegan donuts. Distillery District, Toronto.

St. Lawrence Market – according to National Geographic, the best market in the world.

A gorgeous Saturday morning.  We take the streetcar out to the Beaches to meet Sean, Sam and Janice for brunch at the Beach Side Grill.  Then we go down to the lake and take a walk on the boardwalk, back up Silver Birch Avenue, then up to Seans where we sit on his back deck and enjoy the sunshine.  Later, we come back downtown and walk down from Queen via Jarvis, have a beer at The Corner Place patio and watch the comings and goings at the market across the street.  Go into the market later and get veg, herbs and pasta for tomorrow's Easter dinner.
