Jed told me about fireworks out at Ashbridge's Bay. They were delightful. Yes, nothing like the grand spectacle of the World Pyro Olympics held in Manila shortly before I left for Canada, but standing on a beach and surrounded by all these flares and sparklers was a new experience. Besides, anything involving pretty explosions is always cool.
We brought picnic stuff along - a mat, an umbrella, even some snacks - but were too entranced by the flashy stuff to remember to sit, much less eat anything.
Wonderful conversation afterwards over hot chocolate at a Portuguese cafe near Dufferin. =) I really enjoyed that, and I look forward to our next conversation. (We forgot about the oranges then, too. And they were mandarins, too! My favorite...)
