I’m in Toronto for the night to see Come from Away musical. I took the train…such a great way to travel – no traffic, no stress, beautiful scenery and very relaxing.
Today’s painting is inspired by some of that view, Lake Ontario, as seen through the train window.
I’m staying at the beautiful Fairmont Royal York. I’ve been wanting to stay here for a long time, especially when I get off the train across the street and see this magnificent building.
My grandparents stayed here in the sixties when they attended a dairy convention.
So this visit was the time to book here. In February, I stayed at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier for a night…another place I’ve always wanted to stay. Now my goal is to stay at all of the “chateaus”.
I’ve stayed at Chateau Lake Louise in the nineties. All that’s left is Montebello, Frontenac and Whistler. The first two should be easy enough as they’re close to me. Whistler might be a challenge, but I’ll get there one day 😉
