On our last full day in Canada’s largest city we opted to visit the Toronto Islands.
We made our way to the ferry terminal and queued with hundreds of others to get on board for our second boat trip in as many days.
It was only a 15 minute journey across the water.
The Toronto Islands are green parklands with lakes, gardens, beaches and recreational facilities.
There is also an amusement park for visitors to enjoy.
We walked 4km around the centre island to Hanlan’s point which gave great views of the city and Lake Ontario.
Lunch and shopping
Back on the mainland and it was time for lunch. We found a place called Spring Rolls which serves a variety of Thai, Chinese and Japanese foods.
We took our seats on the patio and I ordered Misa soup, Bangkok wings and Chicken Satay with mango salad.
After lunch I was then forced to go shopping once again.
After looking around a number of retail outlets, and with gifts and a Toronto FC shirt bought, it was back to the hotel for a quick rest.
The Rogers Centre was next on the list of venues to visit, the reason being baseball. Toronto Blue Jays were hosting the Boston Red Sox.
Toronto Blue Jays
After getting our tickets we made our way into the stadium.
The amount of different food and beer outlets put any UK football stadium to shame. The only down side is that beers cost $10. But you can drink when watching the game.
The Blue Jays lost the game 5-1 but it didn’t impact on our enjoyment. They really know how to maximise fan involvement and we even made it onto the big screen!
It’s hard to believe tomorrow is our last day in this fantastic city.
