Island Life

The view of the city from the ferry across the harbour to Toronto Island.




A family picnic on Toronto Island, and what a view! The Rogers Centre stadium roof was open (formerly known as SkyDome before Mr. Rogers purchased it) for the Blue Jays game. YoungerSon bought a family pass for Centreville, the small amusement park, and the kids spent most of the day on the rides. A lot of happy faces. More pictures to come.....

Hello, Shammic!
Long time no see. Sorry I rarely opened my PC.

What a wonderful view. So beautiful!!Good idea for your younger son to buy a family pass for Centreville. All of your family must had an exciting time on Toronto island.
Have a shining day.Smile.

What great pictures, I wonder what time of day you took them.
I would love to know what sort of camera you have?

First picture was about 9:30 in the morning, the other two were taken at lunch time.

Went there a number of times, mostly with Sue in the late sixties. I think we were last there ~1976 for a picnic and we did visit that little amusement park. Somewhere I have a pic of daughter on a pony.

Like your friend Anvilcloud, we were probably last there around 1976. I took photos that day, I must look for them, the skyline has changed greatly in forty years!.

Looks splendid. I love the contrast between the green island, the water and the city beyond.

The city of Toronto is so beaufitul. The sky-piercing tower looks like Tokyo Sky Tree.
