Secret gardens of Thousand Islands

Out of lake Ontario, the Saint Lawrence river starts its journey through the Thousand Islands’ archipelago.

Camping sites, gardens of mansions and cottages point each island, and share the same commodity: colorful, wooden chairs.

The 8th wonder of the world … and a half.

Niagara falls are described as the 8th natural wonder of the world.

_DSC2762 _DSC2710

Indeed they are worth the car ride from Toronto: here above the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls, with some tourists queuing for the cruise.

_DSC2284-2 _DSC2837-2

Niagara falls downtown is also a wonder  … of its kind.

_DSC2526 _DSC2516-2

Water again: Niagara falls from the Canadian side and Maid of the Mist approaching the huge Horseshoe falls.

Niagara … fallen.

The tip of the Western Hemisphere

The tallest freestanding structure of the Western Hemisphere is the Canadian National Tower, built back in 1976.

_DSC1737-2 _DSC1852

And the highest floor in the Western hemisphere is its Skypod.

_DSC1864 _DSC1877

From its 447 m.s.l., enjoy the majestic view on Toronto downtown and lake Ontario.

_DSC1952-2 _DSC1933

Wait for the the lights switching on the Gardiner motorway and roof top swimming pools …

_DSC1939 _DSC1955

… and enjoy the sunset.  Pictures shot with a Nikon 16-35 mm and a 70-200 mm VR II. Click each picture to zoom in.

 

Toronto: the urban jungle

_DSC2259-2 _DSC1721-2

To explore the jungle of Toronto you will need a guide with a large hat. Otherwise follow somebody big.

_DSC2266 _DSC2253-2.

They will lead you through the reflecting labyrinths of glass and metal of University avenue …

_DSC1709 _DSC2075

With them you will be not scared by the dark gorges of Bay and Yonge streets …

_DSC1678-5 _DSC1744-3

and through the sunny oasis of Nathan Philips square, you will finally reach the 553 meter high totem. Where to go from here? Click each picture to enlarge

 

 

Jim’s land

“Hi Jim, I come to visit your homeland for a while, any suggestion?” “Sure Lorenzo, I send you a full road map from Toronto to Quebec City!”

And so it was. More than 2,000 km on the road, discovering the French and English in every citizen of  Canada East coast. And here we start with entering Toronto!

 

 

Finally here!

_DSC1468

Late also this year? Unbelievable.

_DSC1454

No delays there, though …

_DSC1457

I will stay here until she finally arrives!

_DSC1443

Ahh, finally. Yes … There she is …

_DSC1451

Welcome back Summer!

_DSC1400

Go there!

_DSC1409

Almost there …
