Last week's adventure was a kayaking "expedition" from Cherry Beach into the Toronto Islands' waterways.

Headed toward the Toronto Islands
in our two-man kayak, we round this breakwater and I'm amused by the orderly row of cormorants! Personal space seems to be quite a rigid idea among these water fowl.
Disturbed by our approach, the cormorants take flight.
The Toronto Islands
are a pleasant surprise 20 minutes from the busy down-town. Easily accessible, one can get lost within their waterways and get a feeling not unlike being in the north country, only to catch a glimpse of the city again as one comes around one of the islands and looks northwards!
