Here we have a view of the Skyway Bridge that is beside the lift bridge from last week’s view. For those who like such things: built in 1958, the centre is 120’ high and from end to end it is just shy of 8,400’ .

Canoe Landing Park is now open.
This Douglas Coupland designed red canoe can be seen as you enter the city on the Gardiner Expressway. Since I obviously couldn’t photograph it while driving, here is a view of it from underneath the Gardiner.
And here is a [zoomed] view from the brow of the canoe.
You can easily see the cars along the highway, the boats in the lake and the planes arriving on the island.

come sail away...
I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

Lock #1 at the Welland Canal closes on the Tall Ships as they make their way to Cleveland after a fun-filled weekend in Toronto. The Welland Canal connects Lake Ontario and Lake Erie.
First up is The Sullivan, followed by The Bounty and bringing up the rear is The Appledore.
Another tall ship is waiting off in the distance for its turn.

Off in the distance you can see the glass roof of the National Gallery of Art.
