I can’t believe July is already stomping its feet in the wings waiting for its time on stage … and yet on the other hand, I feel like so much life was crammed into the past 4 weeks.
June was a rush of playing tourist with my Dutch visitors, more family celebrations together, and of course my cycling training which came to a rude and abrupt halt last week.
These are the photos I’ve selected to summarize some of my experiences during the month of June this year.
- Another trip to Niagara Falls, this time in warm weather … so different when it isn’t -20C
2) A day at the Toronto Zoo … and no, neither of these photos were taken with a zoom lens. Sometimes nature is just accommodating.
3) A lazy boat tour around the Toronto Islands on a warm week day afternoon.
4) The magnificent Rouge Valley on the east end of Toronto officially became Canada’s first Urban National Park in mid-June. When fully completed, it will be one of the largest protected urban parks of its kind in the world encompassing 79 sq km.
This is one of the new Visitor Welcome Centres now open to provide education and information on this new protected conservation area.
The Rouge Beach along Lake Ontario, has long been a local secret. Even on a hot afternoon in June, the beach was quiet. I think that will change as news of this new park grows.
Changing Seasons is a monthly photo feature hosted by Cardinal Guzman.
