G and I ended up running into Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, this morning outside of St. James Cathedral on King Street East. That was sort of neat; even though I am an avowed republican when it comes to such matters. Her Majesty has done a wonderful job during her rein but I do hope the Canadian government seizes the moment it will have when she finally does shuffles off this mortal coil to rid us of this antiquated institution.
Liz has been on a royal tour of Canada this week – with that sad sidekick of hers, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh – and we happened upon her after visiting the Tall Ships Festival which has been moored down on the waterfront.
But our cycling adventure actually started with the Tall Ships so here’s some sundry photos of what we saw.
Before visiting the Queen we also stumbled upon the secret beach … you’d almost think you’re in Antigua not Toronto eh! And you actually could think this as today was sunny and 37°C – damn freaking hot!
