“Oh, what a beautiful day I’ve got a beautiful feelin’ Everything’s goin’ my way” (Rodgers & Hammerstein)
Well, except for the “everything’s goin’ my way” part (as those of you who have heard my latest housing misadventure know), we had the most beautiful morning’s walk on the Toronto Islands on Saturday. The beginning of the day was a tad cool with that autumn’s coming nip in the air but it was sunny with an absolutely clear blue sky; a perfect day in every way. We met at 8 am at the Ward’s Island ferry and joined the small group of people taking the first crossing. It had been a couple of years since we walked on the islands and it’s so easy to forget how wonderfully special they are. The green lushness of the landscape, surrounded by the glittering blue lake, and the peaceful quiet of the roadway we followed as we walked to Hanlan’s Point and back, taking the boardwalk along the breezy waterfront on our return. And of course afterwards, we had to rest our weary bones at the Island Cafe where we ate and drank sitting in the shade on a most beautiful day. How lucky we are!
