After a week of glorious sunshine and temperatures well into the mid-20s, the boys and I were looking forward to our mother's day overnight at the Toronto Islands. Alas, the weekend welcomed us with cold winds and threats of rainstorms!
Nevertheless, we bravely made our way downtown and ferried across the water to Ward's with our scooters and our overnight bags.
After a stop at the Pirate Playground (so named by Alex and Simon several summers ago), we checked in at our rooms on Algonquin. There were even some ducks to feed! (They came right up to the house!)
Then it was back across the bridge to the playground, followed by dinner with a friend at the extremely delicious Wards Island Café.
So far, the rain has held off. Let's hope it continues to do so for our Centreville plans
