So it was that on a rainy Tuesday, June 7 seven intrepid all-weather walkers met at Old Mill Station to follow Donna Oke on her circle route of Baby Point. It was good to see Stephen in shorts, in a terrific colourful ensemble of purple and red, recently back from a dry English vacation.
He and the rest of our group headed into the rain to the internal melodies of “Singing in the Rain” (1952), “Just Walking in the Rain”(1956) and “Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head” (1969). After a loop around the fabulous estates of Baby Point, we lost half the group for a variety of reasons including terrain and other commitments. The rest of us continued on a shortened but delightful route heading south-east; an hour and a half later three of us settled into the welcoming Dark Horse Tavern on Bloor Street west where we enjoyed excellent Greek fries, chicken wings and fish tacos. I’m looking forward to next Tuesday when I hope to lead you along the Beltline Trail and the Cedarvale Ravine to Mashu Mashu Mediterranean Grill. Happy trails.
