Last week I took the 10 minute ferry ride to the Toronto Islands which are located in Lake Ontario just off the lakeshore downtown. There are 4 ferry routes to the Islands and I took the trip to Ward's Island which is where you can still find around 250 homes. The islands were totally inhabited until the 1950s when the decision was made to turn the whole place into parkland but the residents at Ward's have resisted so far. I'll show you some more pics over the next few days.
This ferry is the Sam McBride which is named after a former mayor and was commissioned in 1939.
