Fireworks and hot chocolate

| life

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

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…)
