Winter on Toronto Islands

I left you in Guatemala and what better follow up post than snow in Canada? Right?!

This is our fourth winter while on the road and we are facing it, some of us less bravely than others, on the Toronto Islands – an amazing little rural-like, car-free, frozen in time escape from the biggest city in Canada, which is just a 10min ferry ride away.

It looked like an unreal hobbit world backdrop before the winter took the leaves, and with them all the beautiful colours, away.

(follows few weeks of gray miserable weather, slightly helped by a night of beauty here and there)

And yesterday we awoke to a blanket of snow effortlessly gifting the islands their fairyland quality back.

Today…today the sun completed the picture and even I could not resist the urge for a long squeaking walk.

The only moments when winter earns some points on the yearly competition it generally looses miserably.

P.S. Yes, I have failed about as miserably at updating this blog. Make sure if you want to keep in touch with me to visit the Facebook page, which I manage to keep up a bit more successfully. I make no promises, daharlings. Writing either flows out of me or it does not. I am apparently not very good at forcing it.

Kisses and keep warm
