Toronto: Lake Ontario from a Covered Perspective

I definitely am in love with lakes and oceans!  I seem to feel a lovely sense of calm when I am in and around water.  Having Lake Michigan so close to me in Chicago is such a blessing.  While in Toronto recently, I absolutely had to be close to another beautiful Great Lake!  Lake Ontario is gorgeous as well.

I took this photo from a restaurant that sits close to the water’s edge.  I could have looked out these windows all day.  Likened to my view of Lake Michigan, the ever-changing ‘sky paintings’ above Lake Ontario are just as mesmerizing.

Our natural environments can really affect our mood, don’t you think?  Despite the frigid temperatures hanging in the air, I didn’t mind, as the coolness provided for a quiet, serene lake.

Cozy sweaters, hot chocolate, and a view like this is fuel for the soul when the winter months are upon us here in the frost-zone!

I hope your Friday is filled with warmth and contentment!

    Lake Ontario is nice but it doesn’t compare to Lake Michigan (at least the US sides). We moved from the south end of Lake Ontario to the East side of Lake MI. Everything MI does right with their beaches and shores NY has done wrong. Cannot tell you the number of days the lake in NY, in Rochester was closed to swimming due to high levels of bacteria growth due to runoff, ill placed piers, and waste water. Happened a few times here since we moved but not nearly the number of days in NY. Love the lakes but super sore point in how they care for them.

      I’m really sorry to hear about that. It is frustrating, isn’t it? I am glad that Lake Michigan is well taken care of here. We get our drinking water from Lake Michigan. It’s very clear water. Let’s hope NY takes a page from MI and does something about the water quality! Cher xo

    Our environment is directly responsible at times for our mood. When it’s not sunny, I feel less cheery. I’d love to have dinner with that view.

      It’s a wonderful view, John. Interestingly enough, I don’t mind the gray skies now and again. I think it puts me in a rather introspective mood which I like! Cher xo

    Lake Ontario is my lake and it is beautiful from both sides, but they definitely don’t have great beaches other Great Lakes do.

      Hi Phil! It is a beautiful lake, isn’t it? But yes, other Great Lakes have some spectacular beaches (like Lake Michigan for sure)! Cher xo

    My family lived in Toronto in the days before it was possible to cross the city underground in the freezing winter temperatures – I can still see the floor length furs hanging in our hallrobe in England. Thanks for stirring the memory.

      Oh did they? Ah, bless! Yes, I am sure it was extremely frosty without being able to walk underground during the winter months! Thank you so much for sharing this! And you are most welcome! I am so happy about that! Cher xo
