Early summer in the city

This is my 100th post! I can’t believe I’ve made it to this point, but it is due in large part to the amazing blogging community that you guys and gals make up. Having said that, I would like to share a post written by one of the great friends I’ve met through blogging.

There’s no doubt that I love to cycle, and I love Toronto. So, after reading this post by my blogger friend Kat, I simply had to share it. She writes a perfect descroption of the sights, sounds, and smells of the morning Toronto bike commuter, and adds a selection of perfect images, all shot from her handlebars with her cell phone, that you can actually feel and smell the commute through her post.

Please take a few moments to read this and click over to her blog to see more of Kat’s amazing work.

Out onto Sherbourne St, the summer emerges in full force – the streets are starting to exude that heat, the concrete gathering up the suns rays and radiating back a thick smelly weight of warmth.
