I had another visitor! One of my closest friends from Ireland, Kate, was coming up to Toronto just to visit!
I was still in school full time, but we still managed to do some sight seeing. Thursday night, we saw A Midsummer Night’s Dream through Shakespeare in the Park. (It was fantastic, not that any y’all had any doubts about that).
On Friday, Kate went to Niagara Falls, and then we met with another Torontonian from Ireland, Manfred, for dinner. And also made sure Kate got herself some Timmies.
Our full day of adventuring was Saturday, and our first stop had to be the Islands! It was a beautiful day, and I hadn’t been since I was a kid.
We decided to do some more touristy stuff. I anticipated many more visits from Kate, so it would be nice get it out of the way now and do less touristy stuff on future visits. So, obviously, our next stop was the CN Tower.
Whenever my family goes to the CN Tower, we eat in the restaurant. We do this firstly for the view, but secondly so we don’t have to wait in line to get up.
I thought she’d love the distillery district, and I’m always down to spend time there.
We made sure to go by Kensington Market and walk through UofT, and just generally had a full day exploring the city.
