A Toronto Transformation

A Seafaring Weekend

All right, so to be strictly accurate, there was no actual sea involved in my weekend, but there was seafood, and a trip to the Toronto Islands, by boat no less! And uh, I had to pay a fare to do so. So…the title stands!

I’m determined to spend as much time on the islands this summer as I can. I’d almost forgotten how ridiculously beautiful and peaceful it is over there. It’s so strange to be able to see the whole city, to be so close to it, but without the sound of a car in earshot. One of my dearest, darlingest friends had us over for a lovely, relaxed Sunday lunch and it was the perfect mini-break from yet another busy Toronto weekend.

I made some new friends when my downstairs neighbour invited me to her birthday party. Although, my occasional social anxiety reared its fearful head and kept me paralyzed at the top of my own stairs for a good 20 minutes before I summoned up the courage to walk into a room full of strangers. What is that? I like people so much and am reasonably adept at smalltalk, but every so often I am cripplingly shy.

I also had a great visit with my most entertaining parents on Saturday at Fishbar. I love that they’re waiving their corkage fee on Wednesdays in support of the Ocean Wise sustainable seafood program. And they make a mean fish taco.

How were your weekends? Do you have any summer island-type resolutions? Do you ever get weird bouts of social anxiety? No? Yeah…me neither…

      Right? I keep trying to spill things on my own head when I’m there so I can have an excuse for a bath!

    I want that bathtub! And I feel you on the social anxiety thing. Most of the time, I’m perfectly fine around people, but every once in a while someone invites me to do something that sounds really fun, but there will be lots of people I don’t know there so I just stay home and watch Netflix instead.

Follow me around, why dontcha?
