Around Toronto on my own

After my other relatives flew back to San Francisco I had a chance to walk around Toronto on my own, I took the Toronto Subway and public transport system to see the city Toronto has grown into a city with lots of different cultural and ethnic flavors about the size of Chicago. I was able to move from Scarborough to North York and from one part of the city to the other without a car of my own with relative ease.

The June 2012 Trip to Toronto

Wow, It's been such a long time since I had any sort of a vacation, but finally, I was able to travel to Toronto and celebrate my Uncle's 80th Birthday. I stayed a little while longer after my other relatives left, I had a chance to visit some people I have not seen in a long time and meet some new people. I also was able to travel around Toronto and learn now to use the subway system.

Check out a few of the photos I have taken over the years, I have a number of different photo galleries available for you to view. I have photos from the places I have traveled to and various non-related subjects here.

You will find a small sample of the photos that I have taken over the years, you will find a sample of several of my photo sets from my Flickr account. I have displayed a few photo sets from around San Diego, San Diego Comic-con, Stockholm, London and Lisbon, you are welcome to visit my Flickr account and view more of the photos from these sets.

Germany

Munich, Germany

After we finally got off the ground and flew to Munchen (Munich) Germany, British Airways got us to their safely, but they took so long to get process Milton's lost luggage request that (21/2 Hours), Barbara Laber and her family have been trying to get a hold of both Milton and I. They left a message with the information desk clerk, but we never got the message because the clerk's shift finished and he or she went home because it took so long for Milton and I to get out of customs.

Here it is - Check it out.

This is my latest panorama, I froze my rear-end off taking the photos of Downtown San Diego from Shelter Island, it was windy, and cold but worth it. In the end, it turned out nice, but there was a lot of traffic on the bay, and a search of one boat that was anchored on the bay by the police, first there was one police boat then there were two, and then the police cruisers started to show up, and before you know it, there were police all over the area.

United Kingdom

London Heathrow to London Gatwick

After I arrived in London, I went to the wrong baggage claim terminal to pick up my luggage (the signs in London Heathrow are very confusing); so i went through customs and went to British Airways customer service to find out how I could get into the right baggage claim terminal. They told me that I could be escorted into the baggage claim terminal, no problem.

Many years a go, I use to spend a lot of time around Pacific Beach, I use to surf Tourmaline Beach, Pacific, and Mission Beach all of the time. So, I decided to get up early Sunday morning and have a look around, I started up at Garnet near Henry's Market, and worked my way down to Mission Blvd., I walked through the residential area, then ended up at Feldspar and Mission Blvd. There was a Automobile Transport Tractor Trailer with Opels from Germany there, the driver said that hotel near by is using them as courtesy cars or something like that. I started out at 08,00, by this time, it is around 09,00, the driver and I chatted for a few minutes, he said the automobile company is trying to build some brand awareness for Opels, they have done the same thing in a few spots around Southern California.

What I did notice is that a lot of cafes have sprung up around the beach area of PB, a few residential houses are now Restaurants, Skip Frye's Surf board studio and the adjoining lot is now a hotel on the beach, the Lucky's supermarket is now a different store, and several other places are no more. Star Surfing Company has changed sides of the street, apparently the landlord and the owner of the surf shop did not see eye to eye. I sold several of my surfboards there, and ate at the taco shop that was next door, but now the new place is much smaller, but all of the old photos have survived the trip to the other side of the street.

The Crystal Pier and the Crystal Pier hotel are still the same, but the bar Blind Melons is now the 710 Club, I was in this area at night, but I did not realize there was so much activity in this area at night.
