Prior to enjoying the long Victoria Day Weekend, I spent a few days in Toronto attending a business conference. It was an opportunity to meet up with colleagues and friends.
The Sheraton Centre downtown is an old hotel but is different in that it offers a bit of serenity amidst all the concrete.
Prior to starting the conference, I was delighted to have the opportunity to meet the newest member of the family!
Before getting down to business, a sushi dinner out with friends kicked off the event.
After 2 full days of improving my skills, I made it back to town in time to have a cold beer and burger with the 'kids', who came into town for the long weekend.
As it was our son's birthday, his choice of outing for the day
was a trip to 'the county'.
We started at Vickis Veggies to get our heirloom tomato seedlings.
There were many vendors with lots of local fare.
Once the seedlings were secured in the trunk, we headed off to our favourite lunch spot: the patio at
We enjoyed tomato basil soup, grilled cheese and pesto mussels!
The birthday boy all smiles with his charming wife!
The day ended with a wonderful vintage Medoc! Delicious!
A great way to end the holiday weekend!
