Well it was a great long weekend, and even better if you were not stuck in your car trying to get around Caronto, The Ford Nation,… Seriously, didn’t Rob Fraud Ford say he was going to fix this traffic gridlock thingy that was causing all the car drivers major grief? Look don’t get me wrong, I own and drive a car in Caronto,… although I am trying to do it less and less. Why? Simple, you can get around this city faster on bike than you can by car, proof of this was getting down to Ashbridges Bay for the fireworks show. Mark and I outstripped the car traffic easily. We got from the High Park area to Ashbridges Bay in about 25-30 minutes. After the fireworks, we got out of there and home while people who drove were still driving to get out to main road.
Anyhoo, I managed to get a few pictures of fireworks and one of the CN Tower doing a good impression of the UFO from ELO.
