Crescent Moon (or groovy canoe in the sky) and Toronto

Another great weekend with Ceri.  Saturday we had breakfast, went and shopped stuff we don't really need for fun (and sensibly didn't buy), went up to Yorkville (despite wicked cold wind coming down from the north) to see the Ice Fest, stopped for pint and snack on Yonge Street on the way back, had dinner at lovely little pizza place in his neighbourhood and then looked at that crescent moon rocking over the city like a groovy canoe before going to bed.

Today it's very mild (+7C) and I walk downtown the long way to get a birthday gift for a certain youngest daughter who turns 27 on Sunday.  I admire the Hockey Hall of Fame building, as I always do when I walk by it.  Front Street at Yonge, Toronto.
