New Year In Toronto

Happy New Year everyone!

We left Ottawa on Tues­day to have some fun in Toronto. Now that we are back in Ottawa, there are hun­dreds of pic­tures to edit, but I fig­ured I’d start with New Year eve.

In Toronto, most of the party takes place down­town, in Nathan Phillips Square, at the cor­ner of Queen and Bay. There is a small skate rink (small by Ottawa stan­dards — remem­ber, we have the 7.8 kilo­me­ters long Rideau Canal!) and skat­ing seemed to be the num­ber one activ­ity. That and eat­ing junk food: I had never seen so many much cot­ton candy, pou­tine, hot dog, waf­fles and sausages!

It wasn’t cold, just a bit rainy. We walked around down­town for a few hours and fol­lowed the crowd to Nathan Phillips Square around 11:30 pm. It was quite fun and the small fire­works were a nice touch to the celebration.

So, what are your new years resolutions?

  1. Res­o­lu­tions, hmm, I took an ironic res­o­lu­tion to not take any res­o­lu­tion, :-P seri­ously, its not worth the heart­break since I rarely meet any. ;-)

  3. Res­o­lu­tions: Like you, no big res­o­lu­tion… I don’t keep them any­way! :lol:

    Looks like you had a great trip and cel­e­bra­tion in Toronto — I like my own shoot up fire­work even bet­ter though :-)

  4. My New Year res­o­lu­tion is to dream day and night. Because dream­ing per­mits me to be qui­etly and safely insane every moment of my life…

    Just kid­ding. I don’t make any resolutions.:D
