Urban Toronto get-away

One of my husband's favourite things to do is get out canoeing on the Humber.  I quite enjoy it too, but let's face it, it's never my initiative that gets us out there.  Often we head up the river as far as we can before it gets too shallow to paddle (usually around Bloor).  However, this weekend we headed out into the lake, thinking we would head for a small beach we once found and have a picnic.  We went exploring a bit first though, and ended up discovering the Humber Bay Park East beach.  It is a rocky beach, wasn't that busy, and had beautiful, clear swimming.  We spent the day in the water, having a picnic and collecting beach glass.  It was amazing to be able to jump in the water so close to home!

 Sometimes being married to Captain Outdoors pays off big time.


  1. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun! Love to go canoeing too... too bad we don't have a canoe but definitely considering one though. We're going camping in about 2 weeks, so canoeing is definitely on our to do list :) 

  2. Ahhhh - feeling homesick! That's not too far from our old little Toronto home. Oh how I do miss it! Looks like you guys had a great day! :)


Thank you so much for your comment - they always make my day!
