We’ve Arrived in Toronto for the Festival of Trees

Children's author Kathleen Cherry in Toronto for the Festival of TreesWe made it to Toronto last night and even managed to find our way into town without getting lost or any mishap – okay there was the issue of going back in through the ‘out’ doors at baggage claim – but we got away with it. Then there was a bidding war at the taxi stand. Taxis seem to operate somewhat differently here.

Today was spent exploring Toronto. Fantastic, beautiful and energizing city! I am with my oldest daughter who used her phone to navigate – I’d have had the two foot map! We explored Queens Street and found a wonderful brunch place. I embraced the ‘tourist mom look’, according to my daughter- although I noted her jacket ended up in the backpack. Some things don’t change.
