Wanna come on a two hour/9km walk with me?

I wanted to get some exercise but I didn't feel like being stuck in the gym ... so I went for a long brisk walk instead. I ended up being gone for just over two hours and walked 9km.

I headed west along Queen Street W. It was jammed with traffic and pedestrians.

I crossed the bridge where Queen W, King W and Roncesvalles meet. There was lots of traffic heading into the downtown core.

I headed west along the boardwalk towards Sunnyside Pavillion.

There it is!

I turned around and headed east again along the boardwalk on the Waterfront Trail.

I came across a pink bike which is part of the Good Bike Project.

The trail then veered away from the water and hugged the Lakeshore.

Oh oh ... looks like someone got caught speeding!

The trail veered back along the water. Yay!

I paused to enjoy the beautiful sunset.

Back on the trail again and I came up to the Molson Amphitheatre. Selena Gomez and the Scene were playing there tonight.

Let's go to the Ex!

Though Inglis left the area in 1981, their sign still flashes inspirational messages. I hope they leave the sign there when they build the condos.

While I was walking, I listened to The Baddest of George Thorogood and the Destroyers and the Stray Cats' Built for Speed.

It was a great night for a walk!

Your walk looks wonderful! Thank you for taking us along. I have never been to Toronto, it's so fun to see it through your eyes.
Good for you, you must be looking some serious weight!
Hugs, Cindy

Looks like a good walk. We missed our walk today. It was a little warm.

I havnt been out to that area in years! So cool that you can see the Ex from your walk. I was sure I commented on your last book post but I dont see it...I was saying thanks for the reminder of Linwood's books, I kept forgetting about them and loved his columns in The Star for all those years.

A nice long walk is good for the body and the soul.

Thanks for taking us along on your walk... it was great to the city and recall areas that I have not visited since moving to the countryside, north of the city. Next time we spend timeat our city home .. I'll have to go for a walk along the board walk.. xo HHL

Thank you for the kind comment & the 'Happy Blogoversary'. Had a peek at your place .... LOVE the pics, looked like a grand time for strolling along the shore and around town at night.

I'll go on ALL of your walks - as long as you do the walking and I do the photography appreciation!
