25 March 2017 – As you all know by now, many things in Vancouver make me wriggle with delight. Moss, mountains, ocean, rain, signs about rain, images of rain … you name it, I’m wriggling.
But I have to say: when it comes to wandering down a lane to see what you can see, Toronto is usually more fun.
Starting with the name.
Which of course sends me online, searching. Thanks to number 10 in the list, I learn why this little lane just S/E of Queen E. & Jarvis is called Bootlegger.
At first it looks disappointingly tidy & polite.
But then … aha …
Love the context? Traffic sign & recycling wheelie & fire escapes & all? Me too.
I also love the flower-power mural.
So I am satisfied.
Bootlegger Lane has rewarded my detour, and I spin on my heel to walk back out.
One more reward!
Oh, oh, oh, I wriggle with delight … this is so T.O.
