photoblog image Leslie Street Spit

Leslie Street Spit

A view from the Leslie Street Spit, a long man-made extension out into Lake Ontario -- much of which has been built with the dredge of the Toronto Harbour. Today it has become a bird sanctuary and taken on a wild nature of its own. In the right of the image is the Outter Harbour Marina while in the background one can see accross to the Toronto Islands and the city beyond. I shot this while out on a ride on my bike one day about a month ago now.

It's called a spit because it's where all the barges spit out their junk from when they were dredging the harbour... right?


Okay, so maybe not.... It's almost like being in the country, but it's in the city... it's weird.. kinda throws you off a bit. That's okay tho, give them 10 years and they'll turn it into condos, with great city views!

speaking of condo's... guess what... some genious somehow managed to get a zoning permit to build a condo in Schomberg.. like right in the middle of the town... they had a construction crane and the whole bit.. it was surreal...
