Vancouver, BC; Toronto, Ontario.
Chose to walk around park on the west side, as our annual December 24 family day. Light rain in off-season, attractions shut down due to pandemic. A rare opportunity with all our sons in town, though no longer all under one roof. (High Park, West Road, Toronto, Ontario) 20201224

Who has the keys to these locks? Two posts and a chain across laneway raises questions as to whether it's private property, or a public right-of-way that has been obstructed. Pedestrians can easily walk around, but vehicles will be deterred. (Laneway north of Queen Street East, from Carlaw Avenue eastbound to Boston Avenue, Leslieville, Toronto, Ontario) 20201208
Couldn't find my chain tool, got a hand to repair a break from a bad shift on the bike I bought in the spring. Research paper deadlines and job change had the wheels hanging n the garage for months. Tuning up the drivechain, couldn't get the full range of gears, but this ride should be an improvement over my winter bike. (L'Amoreaux neighbourhood, Scarborough, Ontario) 20210815
