Despite the heat, we did manage to get out a bit this past weekend. When I heard that the Tall Ships were at the Toronto Waterfront Festival, I knew I needed to take a trip down to see them. One thing that I love is water and wish that my home floated, so that we could sail it down somewhere tropical. Ahhh, only in my dreams I'm afraid (for now)!
Europa from The Netherlands.
After we wandered around the waterfront for a bit looking at all of the ships, we headed up Spadina for some lunch at Jumbo Empanadas in Kensington.
I worked for a few months near Kensington and really enjoyed eating at Jumbo Empanadas. I love their beef empanadas and their salsa is fantastic. Andrew had never been there before, so when we decided to go down to Toronto, I knew right away that I wanted to bring him there for lunch. Being so close, how could I resist!
And for the quilters/sewists out there, I thought you would enjoy this picture. This sculpture at the corner of Richmond and Spadina is a great representation of the Fashion District. You can find stores in Toronto's Fashion District that only sell buttons. Buttons! I love it, and can wander those streets all day looking in all the great little shops.
This sculpture is of a giant thimble resting on a stack of buttons. Sitting on a corner, there is also a measuring tape that follows the curve of the corner and heads on down the street (you can see it at the bottom of the picture).
That was our Sunday, hot but fun!
