Back From Toronto

Well it does seem that I get around quite a lot but really it isn't true. I did go to Montreal last month and Toronto this month but...

I attended a conference in Toronto last week. This was hosted by the professional organization that I belong to. It is held annually. My husband and I both attended because we are in the same line of work. So we had a weekend away and got some professional development.

I use to live in Toronto. I went to university there and had many great years in that city.

I have many favorite spots but this one I love because of the art on the building. I have always liked the idea that there is a facade that could easily blow off. I guess I see it as a metaphor for people. We often present an image of who we are but if anyone looks more closely they would be able to see that there is so much more going on behind the scenes so to speak.

Well enough of the, we did the conference but also managed to get to some great city spots. We walked down Spadina and had coffee at the corner of Spadina and Queen. What a great place to people watch!

We wandered further down Spadina to our favorite sports store-Mountain Equipment Coop. It was dark as we headed back and walked along the well lit theatre district.

Saturday we only had to attend a session in the morning so we took the opportunity to subway it down to Front street where we walked west to St.Lawrence Market. I can smell the different food vendors as I write this. After that we continued on to the Distillery District. Oh what a beautiful restoration job they have done and what beautiful art everywhere down there! Check it out
