I took a vacation day lat Monday and headed to the Toronto Island with my fashion boyfriend, Philip Sparks. I love the Island but hate going there on the weekend with the extreme crowds waiting for the ferry.
I was prepared to head there alone but Philip decided to give himself a two day weekend and joined me.
We walked pass Hanlan’s Point and found a nice little area on the south side. I’m not really into watching the nude frolic on my day off but more power to them.
Philip braved the waters and took a swim. I don’t swim in Lake Ontario even though some of the beaches are very clean. I’m a salt water girl at heart. I did do a bit of wading up to my thighs to cool off.
The most spectaular part of the day was watching thousands of Cormorants flying from the Leslie Spit westward. It lasted for about 15 minutes. I’ve never seen anything like it here. The closest was during my trip to LA last summer. We happened to see the Cormorants fly back towards the Leslie Spit a few hours later. I wish I had video but they were too far from shore to be anything bigger than a speck on video.
All in all it was a great day off at one of my favourite places in the city with Philip Sparks.
