Summer Solstice

Lovely lovely weekend.

Motored over to Toronto Island Friday night with Rob and tied up to Hanlan's wall. It started to pour in the middle of the night. I love the sound of rain on the deck when we're safe and snuggled up inside the boat.

Saturday we rode our bikes in the light drizzle from one end of the island to the other, stopping to admire the Dragon Boat races. Our timing was perfect, we got to see the Mayfair Predators take their heat. The announcer said they are one of the top teams in Canada - in fact - internationally. He also mentioned Canada is one of the most highly ranked countries in Dragon Boat racing, thanks in part to this team.

After a tasty lunch at the Rectory we wandered around and looked at some of the Ward Island gardens in the rain and cycled back to the boat.

Alex joined us in the evening and we hung out, watched a bit of TV and got to bed before midnight.

Woke to sunny weather. Rode bikes, climbed trees, kicked sand on the beach, watched more dragon boats, hung out by the fountains, saw the gardens. Toronto Island is definitely one of my favourite places on the planet!

Celebrated Father's Day on the Island and then had a wonderful sail back to Bluffers Park.
Really enjoy hanging out with my boys!
