There is the island just by the quay. It is a 15 minute ride by ferry. Then there is the CNE which is on in summer but may be later in later and it runs till end of August. The zoo is quite a bit aways. There is the Ashbridges Bay beach with a wooden walkway. There is another beach frequented by bikers Wasaga Beach.

There is Kitchener which would be Germantown. The East Europeans live on the West side. Little Italy is located in College Street. Greeks are near Gerrard Street and Danforth. Little India futher east on Gerrard. Woodbridge north of Toronto would be the new Little Italy. The Jewish quarter would be Spadina, Sheppard and Younge as well as Steeles.

There Canada Wonderland by 400 Highway north of Steeles. One can also do water gliding. They rent wet suits with the watercraft and sail.

There is a race course by Woodbine and lots of strip joints.

@talk72000,
You've certainly got an interesting perspective on distances talk72000.

@ehBeth,
The water certainly looks blue from up there. I wonder if it could be higher enough to see Buffalo.

@talk72000,
When the conditions are right you can see Buffalo. Though I can't imagine why anyone would want to.

@ehBeth,
I remeber being up there and everyone was mentioning Buffalo, maybe as a joke. There was a song by Barbara Streisands about "On a clear day you could see forever - even Buffallo."

@talk72000,
she's right up there wondering (as we often do) about Buffalo (and not the mozzarella kind!)

@talk72000,
ain't never thought of Bethie as a goddess!

If I were closer, I'd be in strife for calling her Bethie - but what do I know - I'm just a cute little antipodean kittycat!

A goddess.

I'm going to have to remember that as a possible HalloweƩn costume.

@ehBeth,
I think the Statue of Liberty is based on the Goddess Athena.

I want to see the Red Sox play the Blue Jays at the Rogers Center, er . . . Centre,
visit the Hockey Hall of Fame, and go to the CNN Tower. We didn't do any of
those the last time we were there.

@George,
OK, but it's not the Cable News Network Tower, George, it's the CN Tower, the Canadian National Tower, referring to the railroad. I may have to give them a call and have you excluded.

Sheesh . . .
