Brigitte and I went for a walk down on the boardwalk Sunday afternoon. It really is quite a lovely place to walk and talk. The trees were budding and the tulips were out (see the bottom picture). We had a coffee (well at least I did) and shared some ice cream and sat on a bench for a while and watched the lake and the flowers and the people. Toronto is very cosmopolitan. We have commented to one another that we hear so many languages spoken down on the boardwalk. For sure we heard Spanish, German, French, Russian and broken English, and English with a strong accent.

I took a couple of pictures as well. The first one is the Leuty Lifeguard Station - a beach landmark. The second is the Gardener's Cottage in Kew Gardens - a historic site (built in 1902 by Kew Williams) and also a Beach landmark. You can see Brigitte standing behind the tulips.

It's a long trip down there from Thornhill but it always seems worth it.
