|A view of Downtown Toronto from the Toronto Island. -Max Albrecht|
We took the ferry over to the Toronto Island and pedaled around. It was freezing cold, and I took it as a good character training for cross country skiing. (I have a feeling that I'll be pulling my red Pelotonens out sooner than expected this year.)
|Lex Albrecht at Far Enough Farm, Centerville Island, Toronto Ontario. -Max Albrecht|
One of our destinations was the Far Enough Farm where we saw pigs, sheep, donkeys, rabbits, a peacock, horses, swans, and tons and tons of ducks. I'd never seen so many ducks in my life. I almost ran over a Canadian Goose.
We had coffee while watching a horrible outdoor karaoke show (there should probably be a bylaw against those), checked out a movie, learned all about Smart TVs from a guy named Jack, walked through a public labyrinth (Which is not a maze: a maze has many possible paths and lots of dead ends whereas a labyrinth only has one possible path and no dead ends. Walking it is supposed to be meditative. We didn't meditate.) and Max introduced me to a new kind of apple : HONEY CRISP. They're twice the price of a Granny Smith, less tart, even crunchier, and very satisfying.
I'm on my way back to Montreal now where I'll be reacquainted with my Specialized S-Works Amira. I've got my DeFeet compression socks on for the flight. See you later, Ontario!
