A Sunday Walk

After cleaning up the garden and trimming back some of the wisteria and some of the trees that extend from a neighbour's garden Mr.T and I decided to go for a walk before it rained. We walked down Bathurst Street to the lake then walked around the Malting Silos to the other side of Ireland Park. We had explored the area before but now the area was open all the way from the Bathurst Pier to Billy Bishop Airport, allowing you to walk through the whole area. It was nice to see another part of the lakefront opened up for exploration. It would be nice to see the Silos used in a way other than just fenced off from public use. 

We then walked east along the Waterfront Trail all the way to the Sherbourne Commons, where there was a Festival of India. Filling the park south of Queens Quay East the festival featured a few tents promoting Indian culture, but not a lot that was of interest for us. 

We then walked north on Sherbourne to Queen Street then walked west to the Eaton Centre to check out the new footbridge between the Bay and the Eaton Centre. While it isn't open yet it really is a much nicer glassed in bridge. Walking through the Eaton Centre we stopped for a snack before checking out the Canadian Tire for a stool for my workbench in the basement. We found a nice cheap one that will work and catching a streetcar we made our way home.
