When Pigs Fly

One of the demonstrations in the Physics Building during the Doors Open was this cute pig who was demonstrating centripetal acceleration. Physics was not my favourite subject at university so I will give no explanation today!

Physics View

During the Doors Open event a few weeks ago the Physics Department at U of Toronto opened their building and had a lot of great displays but the nicest part for me was that the observatory on the 14th floor was open as well as the rooftop walkway around it. This is the view form there looking east over the campus which basically runs over to the high-rise buildings in the distance at Bay St.  The grassy area in the centre is King's College Circle and it is surrounded by the oldest historic part of the campus. The large building on the right is the new Forestry building which is currently under construction.

Over The Hills

I think this garage door with its cheerful mural would be a pleasure to come home to on a dreary day. The wee bird looking out over the hills is a perfect touch. No artist name on this one.

Mushrooms For Everyone

I spotted this booth at the Saturday Farmers Market at the Wychwood Barns. I don't think that I have ever seen so many varieties of mushrooms before and I was lucky to get this pic when everyone had stepped away from the booth for a second as they were very busy!

Bluebird

I found this beautiful stained glass window in a stairway at the Faculty Club at U of Toronto during the Doors Open event. I love that sweet bluebird and the flowers.

Wedgewood Blue

This is the main dining room at the Faculty Club which I showed you yesterday. Known as the Wedgewood Blue Room it is also a popular spot for wedding receptions and I was standing beneath a balcony which is the perfect place for the bride to stand and toss the bouquet.  It is a very pretty room so wonderful for a wedding.

Faculty Club

This is the Faculty Club at U of Toronto and as you can see from the signs it took part in the Doors Open event a couple of weeks ago. This Georgian Revival building was constructed in 1920 and was owned by various clubs in the city until being taken over by the faculty union and turned into the Faculty Club which is also open for membership to alumni and graduate students as well as community members. It was interesting to see the inside of it since it has several lovely event rooms as well as a lounge, pub & great patio. I'll show you one of the rooms tomorrow.
