Leslie Street Spit

The Leslie Street Spit is a landfill success, a place for wildlife and people to get away from the traffic and crowding of downtown Toronto. My favourite time to walk it is in the winter, where there is less chance of being mown down by bikes.

We took this walk in the late afternoon a few weeks ago. Much of the foliage was past its prime, but was we basked in was the hazy melancholy of an aging year.

The most beautiful blue I think I've seen in person.

A lone boat. On the other side of the spit sits a busy marina.

This more recent landfill project attracts migrating birds and waterfowl in general.

Downtown Toronto in the distance. See the CN Tower on the right?

Good work, beavers!
