Hello from the city!
We've been here now for a week, enough time to have
a few adventures and take many photos.
it's been snowing here in Toronto and what a way to pretty things up.
Many walks through the neighbourhoods, loving the architecture of the old homes...
We don't have a lot of brick houses out west and I always love to marvel at them when I come here.
Hows this for a contrast of age and style...the old fire hall in Yorkville...
Another thing we don't have on our Island is the streetcars and even better,
dogs on the streetcars!...
A trip to Toronto wouldn't be complete without a few trips to St Lawrence market.
This is a foodies paradise.
You want it - they've got it!!
Cheese heaven!!
Mustard land!
 Antipasto city!
The variety of meats and fish and produce is enough to make anyone want to indulge...
We brought home our fare share of tidbits for a tasty feast last night...
 So for now I bid you adieu, with full stomach and my further adventures to continue.

Dogs on streetcars?! OHMIGOODNESS amazing!

I love seeing the contrast between East and West! Each is so unique, but equally special. I've never been out East, but it's definitely something I plan on doing at some point.

I'm jealous! Snow and a fabulous market. Yes, trips to the Big Smoke are always exciting.
Happy New Year.
