Ever since I "discovered" the built-in app in my cellphone that counts the steps I take daily, I have been taking longer and farther walks during my lunch break. The struggle to do 10K steps in a day is now real.
And along the way I discovered beautiful places in my concrete jungle.

Just completed my minimum 4 shifts as a TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) volunteer. After 4 years, I can safely say this year has been the most fun. Festival Street* was such a good choice and it never bored me (nor any of the volunteers).
Away they go...
Line ups, line ups...

*Festival Street - King Street from University to Peter. Closed to traffic Thursday to Sunday. 4 days of fun!
I can no longer recall the last time I was at Toronto Islands. Must have been 8 to 9 years ago. Those days when I chase sunsets and flowers on macro. My crazy over photography days. So with girlfriends in tow - we revisited the islands. Actually, 2 were first timers!
The Gilbraltar Lighthouse near Hanlan's point.
The CN Tower viewed from the island.
At the Island Cafe garden - steps away from Ward's Point.
Just one of the beautiful homes on the island.
A better view of the Toronto skyline.
It was a "workout" day covering around 12 kilometers of walking from end to end of the island. An error committed by no one else but yours truly. Oh well - geography was never my strength.
