A Sunday Morning Walk to Kensington Market

autumn-in-toronto

Here are some photos of a walk to Kensington Market we took on Sunday morning. It was clear and sunny out, although cool enough that we needed hats, scarves and gloves. Really it was one of those perfect autumn days and I am so glad I got up and out with Nick after he announced he was going. (He goes a few times a week and, especially on a Sunday morning, I am more apt to let him go on his own.)

Here are some pictures taken on the way …

We changed our clocks back an hour here this weekend and we forgot about that, so when we arrived at what we thought was 11, many of the shops were just opening their gates and getting their wares out. So we early birds got some coffee to go and aimlessly wandered the colourful streets a bit.

We were home before noon (new time) and Nick made a delicious pasta lunch using some of the fresh things we had bought. We had a glass of red wine with lunch, which led to a second. Some days are just right for a spot of day-drinking.

The crocheted rose brooch I am wearing is a new creation, which I’ll be back to show you in detail later this week.

Thank you for dropping over,

    That looks like the perfect Sunday. Kensington Market looks wonderfully eclectic and your neighbourhood is just gorgeous. xxx

      It is one of my favourite places in the city. It is very central and located on valuable land, so there is pressure to change it, so year-by-year, some of the shops are being replaced, but so far, the feel and atmosphere of the unique place is still intact. I actually remember being taken there as a little kid and there were live chickens in cages on the streets. I remember it being really smelly and not at all charming to my young self, so some changes might be for the better!

    Look at the leaves on the ground!! not a single leaf has turned here! Ugh!

    That’s such a wonderful light in your pictures. Fall days with lots of sunshine are the best, especially because they are rare and winter is coming for real.
