Cherry Blossoms in High Park 2013



One year, I went to High Park and all of the cherry blossoms were gone. That was incredibly sad, so each year I make sure to follow the Cherry Blossom Watch so that I won’t miss out!

If you’ve been waiting, wait no more! The cherry blossoms have peaked and will be around for the next two weeks. Go and see them! Be careful where you park, because it can be hard to find a spot and you will get ticketed if you park in the wrong spot!








Daytripping: The Humber River Pedestrian Bridge



I’m really happy that the weather is warming up, and that summer will be here soon! I went for a walk on the Humber Pedestrian Bridge.


This is a bridge of many names. It’s known as the Humber Bay Arch Bridge, Humber River Arch Bridge, and the Gateway Bridge. Oy.  The bridge was completed in the mid-1990s and spans 100 meters over the Humber River.


This busy Etobicoke spot is great for walking, cycling and taking in the waterfront. You can walk along the Shared Path, under the bridge and take in some swans.




I’ve also been told that this is a really romantic spot when the sun goes down. You can see all of the city lights. As you walk along the bridge, you can also see that many couples have locked their love onto the bridge, like in Italy. Cute!
