Condoland

In a fit of organization, we had brunch, went shopping, and went for a walk so C. could take photographs all in one fell swoop. The Drake still makes amazingly good burgers and there are still non-stop festivals going on at the Harbourfront Centre all summer long. The wind was good for sailing today, so the inner harbour was thronged. Occasionally, the boats made way for a sea plane to land.

We looked at the rows and rows of condos and all the new condo sites. Views of the Gardiner Expressway seem to be much in demand, based on the new construction sites. So many of them are crowded into so little space. So many balconies line up to shares the view of the islands and the lake.

C. bought a hat (about time, with his complexion and the amount of time he spends outside) and I reluctantly admitted I needed a practical, elegant, slightly larger handbag and so bought one. Afterwards, we went by the large LCBO near the foot of Yonge Street, to see if they had any cloudberry liquour. The man who looked it up apologized: the entire province was out just now.

The day became muggy and too hot, but we walked up to the streetcar anyways, stopping only for hot chocolate (and that, only for me) on the way home.

Hot chocolate on a muggy day? You're a braver soul than I am, love.

Re: Wubba
You haven't tried this hot chocolate yet. The weather failed to dampen my covetousness of it.

Oh, by the way-- the 4th of July picture on Colin's website, featuring you and wriggly sparklers, is very nice.

My father also made that mistake - that's not me in the picture, but Jessica, a friend of ours (who's getting married next month - that's her fiancé behind her in the picture). It's still a pretty picture though, and I passed on the compliment.

Wow. I'd have thought it was you.

You went to that place, didn't you? That neat chocolate shop with the hazelnut hot chocolate.

Oh, I am soooo jealous!

That's exactly the place I went. Mmm.

Except, since it was me, I tried ordering lavender and they were out, but I was very happy to have the hazelnut instead.

I also bought a hat yesterday due to getting too much sun.

I've been wandering around in a dying baseball cap that I have to put on backwards every time I do archery because the string hits the brim of the cap whenever I draw the bow. I gave in to my spur of impulse whilst wandering past a hat shop and am now the proud owner of... um.. I don't actually know what it is. But it keeps the sun off, keeps my hair out of the way, and doesn't have such a big brim.
Perfect.
