Sailing in Toronto Harbour

A few months back I came across a Groupon deal for a Toronto Harbour Cruise on the tall ship Kajama. I purchased the deal with the intent that Bryan and I would spend an afternoon in Toronto on the cruise then visit with friends in the evening. Things didn’t work out as planned, we just couldn’t seem to find a day that worked for both of us. The deal doesn’t expire until the end of September, but I wanted to go on the cruise while the weather is still warm.

Instead, I called up my former roommate S, who now lives in Toronto, and planned a visit. It was the perfect day for sailing. Sunny with a bit of wind. It was great to catch up and the cruise was lovely.

Afterwards, we travelled to China Town in Toronto in search of all-day dim sum. Fortunately, that’s not hard to find in a large city (dim sum is strictly a brunch meal in Waterloo). We ended up trying a new-to-us restaurant that came with good recommendations from S’s classmates. The food was fantastic. The price was reasonable for the food we got. We could have found cheaper dim sum, but it likely wouldn’t have been as tasty.

All in all, a fantastic day!

    • It is! I’ve found so many great deals, from a day out to dinner at my favourite restaurant and I even got a cute pair of earrings!
