It's neat to see how one's perspective on a city can change depending on where you stand. In this case, I was sitting, in a sailboat. My Dad and I got our very first sailing lesson from a friend one weekend on Lake Ontario. Even with the weatherman telling us there was an imminent storm that didn't stop us from hitting the waters - and it was worth it! It was nice to escape the hustle and bustle of Toronto and experience a type of calmness and serenity that you would never find in the city. If only Mother Nature had waited another hour before she let it rain... 

The boats at the Outer Marine Harbour 


Our first lesson in sailing: There's no time to relax

It ended up being more work than we expected ;)

But we managed to squeeze in some time to relax

Unfortunately, that imminent storm was approaching...
So we turned around and started heading back to the harbour

Others heading out of the rain with us 

It cleared up once we docked. Just our luck ;)

  1. I love the picture of Benson with the caption "it was more work than we expected" and the Toronto skyline looks beautiful, even on a cloudy day!
