A quick view to my roots in Canada:  Toronto, Lake Simcoe, and Muskoka.

The youngest of four, I grew up in a suburb called Scarborough. My parents made it a point to have us out and about when possible; taking trips within the city and beyond to cottage country at Lake Simcoe. When I was 10, my parents bought a cottage north of the city in an area called Muskoka. I spent summers there, enjoying nature and everything living by a lake had to offer. After graduating from Queen’s University at Kingston, I lived in downtown Toronto. Nine years of teaching, and onward to Europe it was for me. These photos are a snippet of my Toronto, as a kid, and now. The St.Lawrence Market is a must-visit if you are going to this exciting city. It was part of my Saturday morning ritual with my Dad and remains so whenever I go home for a visit.

I’m an early bird…the start of a beautiful summer day, on Lake Muskoka
I know this road like the back of my hand. Summer, at the cottage!
