Today, I am sharing this lovely postcard of the Toronto Islands, Ontario Canada. It has the city’s vast skyline in the background. This is also one of the very first postcards I have received. This was sent by no less than our gracious host, Mommy Willa.
The Toronto Islands are a chain of small islands in the city of Toronto, Canada. Comprising the only group of islands in the western part of Lake Ontario, the Toronto Islands are located just offshore from the city centre, and provide shelter for Toronto Harbour. The islands are a popular recreational destination, and are home to a small residential community and to the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. They are connected to the mainland by several ferry services.
The islands comprise the largest urban car-free community in North America, though some service vehicles are permitted. Recreational bicyclists are accommodated on the ferries, and bicycles, quadracycles, and canoes can be rented on the islands as well.
I also find the white bear (is that a polar bear?) in the stamp very adorable. Thank you so much, Mommy Willa + more power to Postcard Perfect!
