COVID numbers in Toronto and a few other urban areas in Ontario are on the rise so the government has closed bars, restaurants and gyms again in those cities most affected. We went for a walk through High Park this week looking for places to have a picnic later in the week. We were hoping to find washroom facilities and a place to purchase a coffee. We struck out in both areas. So sad to see these abandoned chairs at the Park’s only restaurant. The good news is that there are covered areas where we can sit and have a snack brought from home.
Earlier this week I drove to the Women’s Art Association of Canada or WAAC building downtown to help clean up the garden in the back. They are suppose to be hosting a wedding this Saturday. Our COVID numbers were coming down in Ontario but recently they have started to spike again. There is talk of lowering the number of people allowed to gather in outdoor spaces again but the organizers don’t think that this will affect the wedding this weekend where about 30 people are expected to attend.
Hopefully these chairs will be in use on Saturday. If not it’s for a good reason.
In this day and age of social distancing sitting down in public places is getting almost taboo. On my walk yesterday I did come across some unused garden furniture (still too cold to enjoy) and park benches.
The first three shots were taken a few weeks ago before people were asked to social distance themselves.
Taking a break from my walk but as you can see no one is out and about.
This last one is the car seat after the passenger window exploded while my husband was driving on the highway today. No one was hurt and the window has been replaced. The shop figured a truck had kicked up a stone and hit it just right to cause this kind of damage.
