We discovered a new hiking trail in north Pickering, where many years ago the government was planning to build a second Toronto airport, but decided not to, at least for now. The trail is about 13 kilometres long through some beautiful landscape. Nice way to spend a Father’s Day.

The May long weekend. Stuck in the city. Hot, humid. It started with a motorcycle day trip to Durham… we walked into the woods, and had lunch (the first 2 pictures). Later that evening, Drina’s cousin Hillary and her family came over for dinner… afterwards, we retired to Riverdale park for a game of simultaneous Frisbee, football and soccer as the daylight dwindled (pictures 3 and 4). On Monday, we hiked in the Rouge valley. As I lay by the river, staring at the sky, I marvelled at the clarity of the leaves against the heavens (final 2 pictures).
Drina, Brendan and I took a walk down at the Leslie Street spit, on a late afternoon in mid-January. The light was clear and cold as we trundled through the snow off the beaten path.
