From Queen Street West, looking due south, the CN Tower is illuminated, but not with the light show of the previous evening New Year's Eve. Big flakes of snow starting falling, minutes after taking this shot. Return journey on bicycle covered by glove and coats in white.

Privileged to live in a city where children can run free in a public park, and parents are trusting, without regard to their ethnicity or socio-economic status. The King Edward VII Equestrian Statue was installed in 1969 more for the horse, than for the monarch on horseback. Any traces of defacement by protesters are gone, a brief moment in the larger context of time. (Queen's Park, Toronto, Ontario) 20200721
Practically as far west in continental Canada as possible. Hike to the overlook of the Port Atkinson Lighthouse was posted as 10 minutes down, and 25 minutes back up to the parking lot. Pedestrian route through old growth forest, thick trunk hemlock trees with more than 500 rings. (Lighthouse Park, West Vancouver, BC) 20201025
When/if a Great Lakes passenger vessel requiring a second floor gangway docks for a visit, the Port of Toronto is ready. However, the pandemic has pre-empted the cruising season for the year, not that more than a handful of ships have been previously scheduled. The other side of the building has been rented out for film production offices, and the massive parking lot is cordoned off for automobile dealer inventories.

Don Mills Road Underpass eastbound from E.T. Seton Park is new to me, despite decades of bicycling around the city. Just north of junction of West Don River branch and main Don River, bridge wends over rail tracks. Routed from Thornecliffe Park to the north, coming down a very long hill that I wouldn't want to bike up on. (Don Mills Road Underpass, Lower Don Recreation Trail, Don Mills, Ontario) 20200609
