    Default Show Me Toronto!

    This came out this July, friend just sent it to me, the beach area shown at the beginning is where I live and grew up, as my parents did, and my grand parents.

    The Lifeguard station you will see at the beginning, is where my Dad was the head lifeguard when he was a teenager, and where he met my Mom, who went out with her Father every weekend to the stations to sling my Grandfather's famous, "Garbage Can Stew", he was the 1st Officer of the Toronto Harbor Police.

    The rest is a tour of Toronto, for those who aren't familiar with the city - enjoy!

    St Lawrence Market and Kensington Market are amazing places - foods from all over the world, sold by the people who came and blessed us with their fine cultures and even better foods, and ways to prepare them, always a fun place to go...in the opening when the guy was throwing rocks, across the Lake is New York State, at night you can see the lights of Rochester, and on super clear days, if you're up higher in the city, you can see the mist rising in the sky from Niagara Falls.

    Toronto is one of my favorite cities. Always a lot of great stuff to do, places to eat, and friendly people.

    Bob - you know if there was any winter scenes, the army would be out in full force. Friend of mine from the Soo moved back to TO again about a year ago, after being back in the Soo for the last 7 years - he came back during winter and said it was great seeing all the mini-snowbanks, and people shivering when it was only -27, daylight for more than 5 hours...was hilarious...and you're another 1,000km north of the Soo!!!

    Great video phrank.
    Kensington, St Lawrence, and Centre Island.. All favourite spots when I was a lad.
    Really good quality shoot.
