Toronto Islands -- a perfect place on a summer's day

This fountain near the ferry slip on Centre Island was a welcome sight after a long hot stroll from the dock at Ward's Island along the boardwalk that overlooks the lake.

In atmosphere, the Toronto Islands are a world away from downtown, though physically, they are very close by.

Ward's Island is characterized by lawns, gardens, nature trails, ducks and delightfully quirky summer houses like the ones shown.

Life is quiet here. Motor vehicles are scarce, but dogs and bicycles park outside the outdoor cafe. One side faces Lake Ontario; the other overlooks downtown.
