It’s not quite an annual tradition, but my Dad and I try to make it up to Toronto as often as we can to take in some Blue Jays games and check out a few sights from around the city. Lately, we’ve been pretty solid good luck charms for the Jays, and it was no different on this trip with the home team winning two of the three games we saw. We also seem to inspire the best in Edwin Encarnacion on our visits. He might want to include some free tickets and a plush downtown condo for us in his next contract negotiations. Here he is circling the bases after one of three monster home runs he hit while we looked on:
A second trip to Toronto in 2014 for me, this was a really nice three days with my Dad. There was a lot of time at Rogers Centre for the games, a trip to the new aquarium at the base of the CN Tower, some time over on the Toronto Islands on a pleasant spring day, a visit to the St. Lawrence Market and more than a couple of ice cold Steam Whistle beers enjoyed while just generally hanging out. I’ll write more in the coming weeks on a few new to me experiences in Toronto.
