It looks like this is going to be a beautiful week in Toronto. It’s supposed to be sunny and warm all week. Lovely.
I took advantage of the great weather yesterday. I had to go to my new college campus to buy one of my college text books for my online course and since my campus is on the waterfront I took the time to take several pictures while I was there. I love Toronto’s waterfront area. It’s beautiful. There’s so much to do and it’s so pretty!
As it turns out George Brown college moved the nursing division from St. James campus to the Waterfront campus. The Waterfront campus happens to be right beside Sugar beach which is this kind of cool looking fake beach with white sand that over looks the lake. It’s right beside the Redpath sugar plant and I’m sure that’s likely why it’s called Sugar Beach. It’s very pretty with it’s pink umbrellas. Of course, while I enjoyed the sunny day and warm weather, beautiful sites and lovely beach it only served to remind me that in a few short months I’ll be putting up the christmas ornaments. Now isn’t that a scary thought!
Once we were done picking up my text book at the college book store and walking around on the water front my husband suggested we check out something that was pretty much across the street from the college campus. The Sherbourne Common. I really hadn’t heard of this area or seen the cool water features or other green items that were there prior to my visit yesterday, but I was blown away once we got there.
The Sherbourne common has three huge water falls that are composed of water streaming down mesh screens. It’s extremely cool to look at. The water is recycled back into the lake I believe if I read the information correctly. Actually the playground equipment and other materials at the common are all recycle and green materials. I’ll write another post and add more photos but for now, here’s one photo to show you one of the water features in the sunset with the CN Tower in the background.
Have you been enjoying beautiful weather this September?
