toronto - extended version

o, ps, before i start .... #3 of things that make me happy is spending time with my friends.  i value that highly among my very favourites!
so, breakfast was happening at the richtree market.  it is such a cool and fun place to eat.

first you have to walk around and look at all the delicious choices, then decide what you want.

i decided on crepe with egg, cheese, potatoe, mushrooms, and onion inside, with salad

this was pretty, just right behind the table where we sat.

this is a couple shots of where we stayed.... the king edward hotel.  its very fancy actually, and has quite a history.

"Within walking distance of the best shopping and restaurants in the city: Eaton Shopping Centre is close by, as are King Street and the chic Queen West. Visit the pride of Canada, the Hockey Hall of Fame, or the dramatic CN Tower with its glass floor, the Air Canada Centre, and Toronto’s city hall, which carries a sort of chic futuristic vibe about it. The Casa Loma – an imposing castle built in 1914 for a wealthy financier – stands on a hill overlooking the city."

these last few shots are just some buildings along the way, i never did find out what exactly they were,... and of course the CN tower.
the last one is an ad / billboard along our walk to the distillery district.  thats the next post

such a fun day.  thanks friends/pooches!

  1. HI Laura
    Well I've never been to Toronto!! nor Canada actually so this is a lovely glimpse of the city and architecture.. in fact looks a bit like Sydney! I like that image 4th from last.. old meets new!! history meets the future!! .. again reminds me of a covered arcade in Sydney ... If I ever get back into town [not working now] will take a shot for you!! of course then I will think it looks completely different .. won't I? haha

    Well I'm glad you had a great time.. the food looks delish and is making me hungry... Take care xx Julie
