I’ve mentioned in a few posts just how beautiful the summer has been. It’s been crazy warm and humid. For instance, this summer in Toronto, the temperature has been hovering around 30 degrees Celsius + (plus humidex running some days into 40-degree Celsius). That’s about 86 degrees Fahrenheit!
I’ve taken advantage of the wonderful weather this summer by enjoying walks home after work, heading to the beach on weekends, and taking walks through the various parks in Toronto.
A few weeks ago I took a walk through High Park which a 399-acre park west of the Downtown area. This park is beautiful because it is full of unique gardens, lots of picnic areas, a lovely little restaurant, and a free zoo. It attracts many visitors all year round. It’s also the site of the Cherry Blossoms in Spring which I shared on my Instastories. It was a really beautiful day when I went up to the park. I took a day off work and decided that I would go and enjoy breakfast at the restaurant in the center of the park and a little walk. There are so many gorgeous gardens to enjoy, the morning was so quiet so I felt like I had the park all to myself.I got to the restaurant early morning. There were a few people also enjoying breakfast catching up with family and friends. It really is a good place to go to if you ever have plans to be in the park. The menu is pretty simple, but if you want to grab a quick bite it’s perfect if you decide to leave your picnic at home.
Afterwards, I walked through the park towards the lake. I love being near the water and living so close to Lake Ontario I get to experience it everyday!
I got back home just before the mid-day heat kicked in!
I can’t wait for Autumn to see all the leaves in High Park turn red, orange, and yellow! This week has been pretty hot, but I’m looking forward to cooler weather soon!
What are some activities you did this summer?
Lots of love,
