Sunday afternoon walk looking for a tree with red leaves. There are none. None at all.

There's just something about the light in Canada that makes your photos look like postcards- beautiful!

Ooooh... lovely! I missed all the parks when I was in Toronto. I don't remember even being able to see any from the CN tower.

RAB, you can see this from the tower. Every ravine in the city is still a park, so biking or hiking north south is a sure thing. No ocean, yet.

Jesson, all of Canada is just a postcard.:)

does your sister know where to get jaffa cakes here?

"All of Canada is just a postcard"; that's not true! I've been to Calgary and Edmonton... ;-) Granted though, every other city I've visited here is spectacular.

Mmm... Jaffa cakes. I found a supermarket in Banff that sold them. Then realised they were 6 months out of date. Even so I was still tempted to buy them...

okay. it's not all a postcard. but that is what gets exported. ottawa is pretty, a capital city, very clean. and calgary and edmonton and most of the west are conservative, oil happy places. you'd like the maritimes.

Vancouver and Vancouver Island are postcard too... more like England than England! I wish we could grow the beautiful hanging baskets that you have on the street lights. The weather's too hot and harsh in Oz to grow them nearly as well as you do.

Yeah, I've heard some of the east coast Islands are worth a visit. One of my mates is a Newfie and keeps telling me should go. I'd like to see PEI at some point too.

I thought Victoria's definitely got an English quaintness to it. The roads and trucks are too huge to mistake Vancouver for England though.

Swampie, my sis lives in Victoria and there is a shop that sells English sweets and chocolate, but I'm not sure about biscuits....though if you email your address, I'd be more than happy to send you some :)
