We caught the westbound Queen streetcar and got off at Lakeshore Blvd W/Marina Parade Drive. Then we started walking eastward on the Waterfront Trail.
We came across these balancing rocks on the Humber Bay Park East Trail.
We walked out onto these rocks.
There was a mama duck and her babies below us.
|She told me that I'd come close enough and I obeyed her|
|Everyone snuggled in for a nap|
We started walking eastward again.
|Coming up on Sheldon Lookout|
|The view of downtown from Sheldon Lookout|
We headed towards Humber Bay Arch Bridge and crossed over it.
There were lots of love locks on the bridge.
We headed east on Sunnyside Boardwalk.
|Great place to play beach volleyball!|
|It was safe to swim in the water (the E. coli level was low)|
|This beach is usually jammed with volleyball nets|
We had planned on having a drink on the patio of Sunnyside Cafe and Pavillion but discovered it's closed 'til next spring for renovations.
So we kept walking. We came across another mama duck and her babies.
|Family nap time!|
We passed by the Gus Ryder Pool and no surprise it was busy.
We walked through Budapest Park.
|Looking back to where we'd started (far left)|
|This guy seemed to be at peace|
|This dog loves to chew on wet logs!|
We crossed over the bridge by Palais Royale to catch the Queen streetcar home.
|Looking towards downtown ...|
surprisingly traffic wasn't too bad on the Gardiner
It was a fun walk! We'd been hesitant to go because the weather forecast was calling for rain but happily it never came.
