Last Thursday I visited my dear friend, Diana, for a bit of business and our annual lunch and tour of Toronto Islands. Diana is the major-duomo on the Islands and is responsible for all its on-site programs including the responsibility of liaisoning with Ward Island residents, which is no small task as the 700-odd souls who live year round on the island are an interesting, artsy, firey, independent bunch.
Travelling the islands with her one gets the VIP treatment including the chaffeured comfort of her personal golf cart. We toured, we chatted business and we had lunch at The Rectory. It was all just, well, splendid.
2) we took the Hanlan’s Island ferry as the golf cart is not allowed on the Centre or Ward’s Island ferries; 3) moi and Diana in the golf cart
