Experience autumn scenes in the Bloor West Village

31 Oct

In 2011, I was not in Canada for the autumn season. I never realized how much I would miss its delights. I vowed that I would never again depart from Canada during September and October. They are glorious months, with warm afternoons and pleasantly cool evening. I realize that there are also rainy, damp miserable days. However, on afternoons when sunshine filters through the golden leaves on Toronto’s forested streets, I feel more than compensated for the dreary days that the season presents.

On 25 October 2012, the season presented one of those perfect sun-filled days. The afternoon temperatures hit 23 degrees. Early in the morning, I departed from downtown Toronto, where I reside. I rode the subway to the Bloor West Village and strolled among the residential streets north of Bloor Street. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Crunching dry leaves underfoot brought back fond memories of childhood. I recalled warm sunny October afternoons, returning from school, when I kicked chestnuts and acorns with my shoe. Autumn – glorious autumn.
