There is something so freeing about Toronto Island. You feel like you're in the middle of nowhere and you have all the freedom in the world. There is this small rock platform that my best friend and I always go to. It's not out of the way of everyone else, but you have to walk a bit further and across some rather uncomfortable sand, so I suppose that's why people stick to the platforms closer to the boardwalk. Yet, we both prefer to be a little way away from everyone else and to simply gaze at people.
Unfortunately, we were joined by some people who sat at the far end of the platform and tanned, which was okay because they were quite a distance away, BUT some couple well in their 40s from the looks of it, decided to tan right near us. To make it worse the woman started stroking the man's chest and when we were taking photos she kept staring at us. Finally we left, looking back to see the guy doing some rather awkward poses on the rock with the woman taking photos. We were officially disturbed.
Here I'm sitting on the edge of the boardwalk fence. It's such a pretty view from here because if you look to the south you see Lake Ontario in all of its glory, but then you look North and see the city buildings far in the distance, with the CN Tower "towering" above them all.
I always see people swimming in Lake Ontario, but while I enjoy sticking my feet in the water, I don't think that I would particularly enjoy immersing my whole body into the lake. It was quite chilly also.
