Theme Day - "Celebrating Summer"

The July theme for the City Daily Photo blogs is 'Celebrating Summer" and I chose this pic of the Toronto skyline with the CNTower and the harbour taken from the Toronto Islands on a warm evening just after sunset. The city comes alive down by the lake in the summer with sailboats racing and people walking on the various beaches and best of all taking the ferry over to the Islands and enjoying the parks and beaches there!

And Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians!

I agree with you about Toronto coming alive. With more people living in the downtown core it is full of life.
