Toronto

We have arrived here, in the largest metropolis in Canada. This city is huge! And we are staying right in the middle of downtown, about two blocks from this:


It's the CN Tower, 1815 feet tall and for a long time, the world's tallest tower.
We will, at some point, go up in the fun elevators to the Sky Pod, but we're saving our pennies, it's $23/person!

In the meantime we are doing the usual settling-in things, finding the grocery store, unpacking, filing complaints with the building about items that are missing or broken.

We did sneak out for a couple of hours yesterday to a nearby beach.

My kids, as it turns out, are out of practice with beaches. They are nervous in the waves. They complain of the cold. They don't know what to do with themselves in the sand. How did we end up with this bunch?? I am hoping to get them out there a few more times this summer, so they can get the hang of it again.

Greg and I weren't especially good examples, I have to say. With the air temperature below 80, and the water of Lake Ontario freezing, we didn't want to do much more than sit on our towel. We are getting old that way.

More to come as we adjust to our new living space and explore our surroundings...
