The Danforth!

This week, more Love Letters…
and more Spadina.
But first, about last week:

I still don’t know why we call this favourite Toronto destination, Danforth Avenue, The Danforth. But I admit that, having heard it called that for decades, it’s tough for me to call it anything else. Exploring it is always interesting.

We arrived at Main subway station and walked west as far as Castle Frank station. With plenty of stops, and a little bit of snow and wind, it turned out to be an excellent morning for a pre-winter wander. Thanks to Julie and Veronika for joining me on that great walk. We visited an interesting clothing/fine craft gallery. A French pastry shop. A couple of Greek bakeries. And just generally enjoyed the day and the wintry weather.

THIS WEEK,
Sunday, November 27, 2016
:

Meet at the Y at 9:00, as usual. We’re going south, to visit the last part of the Love Letter to the Great Lakes series of murals. Queen and Spadina. Then we’ll walk up Spadina to enjoy time in the markets of Chinatown and Kensington and maybe check on the progress of the 1 Spadina Crescent renovation.

COMING RIGHT UP:

I’ll be at a family event the following week (04 December), but will heartily recommend that you all get together anyway and go over visit the Christmas flowers at the Allan Gardens. That’s our Christmas tradition, after all! The week after that, maybe we’ll take a walk to enjoy excellent hot chocolate. Downtown, or in The Distillery District, perhaps? And then, that week or the next, maybe some holiday dim sum? What would make December feel festive, for you? Bring along an idea and we’ll plan!

As always, please feel free to bring a friend along to share our walks. We’ll see you soon.

Are you just finding WestWalking for the first time?!

Welcome. Let’s walk!
See you on Sunday!
