I grew up in Nantes, on the West coast of France. The Loire river crosses the city and I lived close to the banks. We were also a 45 minutes drive from the coast, where I spent pretty much all of my summers. I learned to swim before I could walk and believe it or not, I was an okay surfer and windsurfer. All in all, I believe this explains my fascination for water. I like the sea best but lakes and river will do as well. Hell, even glaciers!
Lake Ontario is one of the five Great Lakes of North America and the city of Toronto is built on its shore. The first time I was there, I thought I was standing by the sea. It may be the smallest of the Great Lakes but I saw water is as far as the eye can see.
Toronto Harbor is an interesting place: it actually reminds me of Hong Kong a little bit, probably because of the many tall condominiums built close to the water. It can bit bitterly cold on the waterfront during winter, but it’s lovely on a warm spring day like it was that weekend.
