Toronto Islands

Where do you head to when you want to get away from the city and relax a little bit? you head to Toronto Islands which are a chain of islands on lake Ontario. The islands are actually not very far from  downtown Toronto and it takes about 10 minutes on a ferry. Your other option is to take a water taxi which will be more expensive than the ferry ride that costs less than $10. I think the water taxis cost about $20.

After all the touring and partaking of Caribana events we headed to the Toronto islands to get a little rest and re-charge (when I say we I mean Edna, her roommate, their mutual friend and I). We brought our own food and had a little picnic before we proceeded to black out on the beach and take a long nap........okay, I am the one who actually blacked out the rest went for a swim and took bike rides around. I was tired from all the action plus the combination of heat, food and two margarita drinks was the perfect recipe for a good long nap.

We did get to do some exploring afterwards but we took things super easy with no rush, the purpose of our visit was to relax after all and that's exactly what we did.

From the islands you can get some very pretty views of downtown Toronto....

That's it folks! I have since returned home and I am glad to say that my trip exceeded my expectations. Toronto is definitely a city to check out if you have the opportunity, I am glad I finally got to visit as it did not disappoint.

Random Thoughts of The Day:

The good thing with Toronto Islands is that there is something for everyone, whether you want to swim, lay on the beach, walk or bike around the can do it all! plus its very kid friendly and has an amusement area with rides for kids.

At the beginning of the year I had made up my mind that this year was going to be full of travel to make up for last year which was pretty dry. So far it's working out as I had planned and I couldn't be happier! I am heading to Boston in a couple of weeks, Seattle at the end of the month then I have a very exciting international trip in November and another one in December. If this is a prime example of manifesting what you want then heck! I want to win the lottery.

I am still trying to make up my mind on where I want to spend my birthday next year, I know it's in March and there is still time but I like to plan things in advance, usually by around August I already have an idea of where I want to go but this time my mind is all over the place and I can't decide.

I had wanted to check out some salsa clubs while in Toronto but it never happened, by evening we were always so tired from being out the whole day plus I think age is catching up to me, at the end of the day all I look forward to is a nice hot shower, my favorite shows on Netflix and my bed.

I would like to give a shout-out to my Samsung S7 phone, you are the real MVP! the photos you take are the and I honestly don't even need a camera anymore as you do a better job than any camera I have ever had. Keep being you and don't you ever change.......yours truly, J.
