One of several sculptures at Ireland Park commemorating the 38,000 Irish famine victims who arrived on Toronto’s shores in 1847.

It felt like a day for wandering along the waterfront. I appreciated my encounters with art, nature, coffee and other things on this day after Halloween, this Day of the Dead.

It’s difficult to participate in life fully, i.e., have meaning, work and an income when the world doesn’t see you. So, even though I’m wearing the fall coat that I have on all the time I’m still linking up with Patti’s Visibles over at Not Dead Yet Style. I need another dozen years of visibility.

015crOn Saturday I made my way through the Distillery District and along Cherry Street to Cherry Beach continuing along the Martin Goodman Trail and then heading over to Tommy Thompson Park. The park is an urban wilderness on a man-made peninsula and is a popular destination for birding, fishing, cycling and hiking activities. I’ve only been here once before, about 10 years ago. Today I was just out for a walk in another direction so I’ll save the lighthouse for another day, when I start earlier and bring water.

002Sunday I walked over to the lake and was drawn to an unusual sight – a huge ship sitting in the harbour. I was intrigued as it entered the wharf waterway by the Redpath Sugar Refinery.

It seems everyone else around was just as mesmerized by the ship as I was. Even today, people were taking note and photos.

The Redpath Sugar Refinery has been operating at this site since 1958 and is one of the last functioning remnants of our industrial heritage. Along with the wafting scent of sugar, you’ll also find a beach, television/radio complex, college and condos on this part of the waterfront.
