After checking out the Art Deco inspired Lord Elgin Hotel we hit the road for an all day but very easy drive to Toronto.  A few stops along the way proved that some of those really corny American TV shows are quite true. They are such a consumer society.  Traveling along the Thousand Island Parkway was a very pleasant drive.  There are more than one thousand islands but some are really tiny.  Only big enough for a fishing shack.  They have to take their boats out of the water by October each year in preparation for the big freeze.  When the lake thaws again by about March/April they can launch them again.

Toronto is a bustling city of more than 2.5 million people and I am staying right on Lake Ontario in the heart of the city.  The hotel is huge.  Took a walk along the waterfront and wandered into the Theatre District and had a lovely Italian meal with Philip and Dean.

There is a saying in Canada – there are only 2 seasons, Winter and Construction (that is the only time they can work on anything, otherwise it is under many metres of snow)

  1. Hi Susan and Geoff, thanks for sending the link through. It sounds like you are having an amazing time and I have loved catching up on your trip so far. I am so glad you liked the Universal VIP tour – should we be keeping out an eye for you in a movie soon??? Continue to have fun!
