I’ve photoblogged about Rollo Bay, my mother’s family’s home community in eastern Prince Edward Island near Souris in the past. I was again taken this visit by the beauty of my uncle’s gardens, predominantly but not exclusively flowers well-suited to the region. The red poppies alone are glorious.
[URBAN NOTE] “Cyclists ride to support Torontonians with HIV/AIDS in the Friends for Life Bike Rally”
The City Centre Mirror reports on this year’s iteration of the Friends for Life bike rally. This is a noble cause, indeed.
An extended heat alert Sunday didn’t dissuade a few hundred cyclists from hopping on their bikes to Montreal to raise money for Torontonians living with HIV/AIDS.
Toronto People with AIDS Foundation’s (PWA) Friends for Life Bike Rally left Allan Gardens July 24 for a one-day, 108-kilometre ride to Port Hope. Some cyclists will pedal 600 kilometres in six days to arrive in Montreal July 29.
More than 300 riders and crew have cycled annually in the rally for the past 17 years, raising more than $14 million in sustainable funding for PWA.

Before catching a 1:30 matinee performance of Anne of Green Gables, I took a quick walk around the block of land occupied by the Confederation Centre of the Arts complex in downtown Toronto, circling counter-clockwise from the corner of Queen and Grafton. I think this brutalist complex blends well into its neighbourhood, its cladding matching Province House and its boxy structures pairing with the rest of the downtown.
