Toronto: Casa Loma Escape Series

Nephew Luke wanted to go, so we did.

We solved the mysteries, and enjoyed the experience very much indeed!

I’d urge anyone visiting Toronto to consider the Casa Loma Escape Series.

Look for us at left in this photo.


I’m journaling this sabbatical.

From Wednesday:

That boat ride into the horseshoe of the Canadian falls certainly ranks as one of the top ten experiences of my life.

Could I name ten?

  • Standing on the Great Wall of China
  • The boat in the horseshoe of the Canadian Niagara Falls
  • Ozawa conducting the War Requiem in Boston, with Bostridge and Quasthoff as soloists
  • My first visit to the Lincoln Memorial
  • Singing Herbert Howells’ music at Westminster Abbey, just feet from his grave
  • Cantering Evensong at Ely Cathedral
  • Seeing Les Miserables the first time
  • The Parthenon in Athens, the second time I visited
  • That one-and-only visit to the Three Choirs Festival
  • Singing Britten’s Peter Grimes at Carnegie Hall on Britten’s 100th birthday

Are there ten more? You bet!

But that’s another blog entry.
