|The Science of Married||
Yesterday Matt and I spent the morning and some of the afternoon wandering around - we went to St. Lawrence Market, the Distillery District, and Woodbine Beach. We started off at the market, gathering fresh veggies and meat and of course, cheese, for our weekend dinners (more on that tomorrow). It smelled SO good in there and it's been a long time since we've been!
The Distillery District was next, and we first went to Balzac's. I was just there on Thursday with Jamie and Hope, and had to show Matt all the great architecture - he loves the exposed brick. Then we just wandered through stores and galleries and saw so many things we could not afford, but it was fun!

There are a few of these cafes around the GTA, but this one is the nicest
Who doesn't like a chandelier amidst exposed pipe and brick?
Plus beautiful photography!
I took a lot of pictures
Matt kept having to stop and wait for me - "I'm COMING!"
So many barrels, but no drinks for us (it was before noon)
Reminds me of some of the buildings in Europe
Definitely an eclectic mix of old and new architecture
City in the distance and old distillery in the forefront
Sucker for a colourful door
For some reason this reminds me of the S&R sign for in Kingston
Nothing like an old fire pump at the bottom of a condo
Reminds of plastic bracelets or glowsticks
Spiral conveyor belt
Weird artsy chairs at the back of a restaurant
Make a wish!
This reminds me of the mutts in The Hunger Games - "Save Me Peeta!!!"

After our city wanderings we went back to our own neighbourhood, about a five minute drive from our house, to Woodbine beach. I don't think I've ever been there in the winter...it's weird walking in sand in boots, but I liked it nonetheless. We went to the old lifeguard station and took some pictures by the water, and enjoyed the beautifully sunny day!

Man made break with a lonely tree at the end
Ohhh the sea birds - the seagulls...
Is it the tropics or Toronto? Who can tell?

Great action shot!
Boots! Soft focus makes me a bit dizzy...
And the selfies begin...
Matt likes this one...I think he looks tired
Oh kissing in sepia...

Family decorated a dedicated tree for a loved one who died - so sweet
Got home to find it 8 degrees - January thaw!!!
