We landed in Toronto just after 5pm last night, and James’ aunt and uncle very kindly came along to collect us from the airport and whisk us off to their house in Mississauga, where we’ll be staying for the duration of our trip. After a quick dinner we finally had to retreat to bed by 10pm…..we’re 5 hours behind here and after a full day on planes it definitely hits you hard!
Today we’ve had a little wander and explore around Mississauga and the surrounding area. I can’t get over how much space and greenery there is here…. Or how many squirrels there are running around the place!
We walked through Rattray Marsh, from which you can see the shore of Lake Ontario – though at 30 miles across you’d swear you were looking at the sea!
After a spot of breakfast we then went down to Port Credit and the harbour, where the Credit River joins the lake. It is stunning to look at, especially in the gorgeous 24 degree weather we’re having at the moment!
Tomorrow we’re off to a Toronto FC match; which should be good… although as I understand it they ain’t doing too well at the minute! We’ve also just booked tickets to see Toronto Maple Leafs play a pre-season on Wednesday evening. James isn’t wasting any time! Though I am actually really looking forward to the ice hockey
Better get out the ol’ foam hand!
