On the #Toronto waterfront

Lake Ontario welcomes the coming spring weather and surprisingly the boats are already out in the harbour. I caught a four person sculling boat warming up on a sunny Saturday during the first weekend April. Later some sailboats headed out of the harbour through a hole in the breakwall. Most other boats still remain shrink rapped in storage on dry land.

It won't take long before the sands of the beaches will be full of sun worshipers enjoying summer in the city.

See more of the the waterfront after the jump.
