I took a walk around my idyllic little town today. The air was a bit crisp, but armed with optimistic pessimism and your typical Canadian fleece pullover I managed to survive. I live north of Toronto, but not north enough to sport the lumber jacket.
My town seems somewhat indecisive on what it wants to be. I am struck by how much indistinct architecture there is despite a glut of preserved historic/heritage homes.
I managed to go by the train station and take some pictures for my other blog. The station is cute, but the bus parking is cuter. In fact, I would have to say that the bikes get better parking than most of the humans waiting for busses do. Glad to see the town has their priorities straight. Just for the record, I am on their side–though I won’t leave my bike there….maybe my old bike.
I found the parking garage for the train to be interesting. Either the third floor is smaller than the others or Auroran’s just like parking on the third floor. It is Saturday afterall and there isn’t a go train today, so…..what’s going on?
I came across this wonderful fusion business. They have been around for a while, so I guess they are successful. It just seems like an odd combination to me.
Passing by the Howard Johnson’s, I can only wonder what will become of this place. Does anybody out there want to buy a HoJo’s? It’s been vacant for awhile–and this is despite welcoming a large number of refugees into Canada. We probably could have done some quick renovation and housed some of them here. There isn’t a kitchen in all the rooms, but we could have done some communal dining.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that fact that just as I was getting near home, it began to snow. Yes, Snow. It is April second! I was hoping to go out for a non-snow bike ride tomorrow. In light of this “development”, I might need to re-think my plans.
