We had to run a few errands on Wednesday and, as Mr. Q.O. drove, I was taking pictures of the various trees and planters along Bay Street, one of the main streets in downtown Toronto. This top one is in front of a hotel quite near us.
This is one of my least favourite parts of the city, but Mr. Q.O. really likes this photo so …
Toronto is a very green city, with lots of trees and planters out on the street, as can be seen in these.
The new grocery store was opened on Wednesday — and wow, what an improvement!! The old store was desperately in need of renovation and new management and that’s what has happened. The choices we now have are fabulous, the store seems much more spacious even though it’s in the same space and it is so modernized that it will be a real treat to shop there. I used to think going downstairs to the grocery store was a bore. While I’m sure the novelty of the new store will wear off, going downstairs to shop is going to be much more enjoyable! We are quite spoiled in that we have the grocery store, a drugstore, electronics store, florists, post office outlet, couple of restaurants, 4 or 5 different coffee places, huge bookstore, shoe store, couple of hair salons, card/stationery store, jewellery store, luggage and leather goods stores, clothing stores, a branch of one of the major banks, a couple of opticians, a chocolate shop, a specialty cheese shop, a furniture store, a linens and towels shop, a multi-screen theatre, dry cleaners, shoe repair and probably something else I’ve completely forgotten about in the retail mall. During the cold winter months, it is the perfect place to live!
Lester was quite interested in something he saw out on the roof garden on Wednesday afternoon.
While Smudge was very interested in having his picture taken.
