Windy Day on the Waterfront

Yesterday I went for a ride with some friends along the waterfront trail as far as the Humber River. The wind was incredible and out of the shelter of these islands it was strong enough to create some ocean-sized waves and practically blow one off their bike! (Luckily that didn't happen!).

The wind turbine at Ontario Place was whipping around in the incredbile winds -- I've not seen it turn so fast. It must have been churning out a fair amount of electricity. I love that turbine down by the lake, it always looks so magestic. I posted about it on Twitter not long ago and the Mayor even commented on it (although that comment has mysteriously disappeared after the CBC ran (the next day) a story on why wind turbines are bad for your health).

I think my second favourite stretch of the waterfront trail goes from Ontario Place (where I am taking this photo) to Jamison road. My favourite is, of course, out in the Beaches.

As you can see Spring is still struggling to arrive in Toronto. The leaves on the trees have yet to appear.
