This picture was taken a few years back when we joined my good Canadian friend on her sailboat sailing on Lake Ontario. We spent several days on the lake visiting different destinations such as Niagara on the Lake and other ports. The lake is similar to sailing on the coastal sea close to land since Lake Ontario is the 14th largest lake in the world, 193 miles in length, 53 miles breadth and the water surface is 7340 square miles. I think this particular picture was taken at the Toronto Islands along the shore line nearby the Yacht Club.
These two pictures were taken in Toronto, Canada by my best friend LG. This was one of their first snows early in the winter season just a few weeks before they lost power for several day. They were lucky to have a fireplace to help keep them warm. I like the brave sole who ventured out at early evening for a brisk cycle! Many years ago I lived in Toronto for awhile and loved the city. However, the cold didn’t agree with me and I returned to Phoenix AZ after 3 1/2 years.
45 minutes later…. I must confess a correction 😀 … the fireplace only used little paper logs that were worthless in this type of cold that penetrated the inside to the core. The inside temperature of the house was around 5 C or approximately 41 F. Too cold for any normal person to experience. They survived with plenty of wine, lots of extra blankets and multiple layers of clothes.
