Roadrunner Recap: Toronto

We are a little behind on posting so I thought I'd do a recap of Toronto.

But first, big welcomes to our newest Followers:
Roger Radcliff
Thanks for following and I hope  you'll find plenty to comment about....

The last week has been quite a blur during our stay west of Toronto.  We were there to meet up with Adam after he finished his train trip across Canada.  We decided to show up a day early and go into Toronto and see some of the great city.   We were not disappointed.
We drove our Honda into a Go Train connecting point and rode into downtown Toronto to Union Station.  It was a beautiful day to walk around town and we did that for a couple of hours.
We went by the University of Toronto and then to Chinatown for dinner.  It was fantastic.
Then we found a place to get dinner before the baseball game.  

Meghan's list of goals included the train across Canada and having Peter take here to a Toronto Blue Jays game.  We met up with a lot of Adam and Meghan's friends and got tickets in the same section.
It was at the top of the stadium (Roger's Center) and right behind home plate.  We got to meet a woman doing a documentary and another group filming and interviewing Adam.  Some media folks have taken an interest in her story, their story, his story.  As their work gets finished it will be posted at

Since the stadium roof was open on the beautiful night, we could see the magnificent CN tower nearby.
The game was a blowout (10-2) Boston but it was a terrific evening and fun to see the gang again.  
We went back to the train station 
and it was crowded with some trains cancelled.  We finally got one after 10 and got back to the RV and into bed after mid night.  Pretty late for us.  But worth it.

Thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles.  After a 'hiatus' of intermittent or no internet connection while in Canada we are back up and running!


  1. Toronto looks like a great city to visit. We have a Blue Jays game on our "list" and hope to get there sooner rather than later. Great pics detailing your day, thanks for sharing them.

  2. Thanks for taking us on a quick tour of Toronto. I haven't been there in years, so it was nice to see some of those buildings again. Good to see you back in blogland again too!

  3. take me out to the ballgame!!..great day you had in Toronto..been there and humid in the summer!!!

  4. I enjoyed reading about Toronto. I have never been there, maybe one day.

  5. What I noticed about Toronto is the cleanliness...It looked very tidy...I am not a big city fan, but taking a train in seems to be the best way to do it...avoiding road rage...Good pics of the ballgame!!

  6. Sounds like a great evening at the ballpark! Glad you all got to meet up the Adam and all of his friends for the Blue Jays game.

    Thanks for the downtown tour of Toronto. Very nice looking city.

    We are also glad to see you back up on the internet. We missed you!

  7. How exciting for Adam that he got to cross off another item on Meghan's to do list and you got to be a part of it.

    Thanks for the tour of Toronto hopefully we will get there one day.

  8. I am so glad you were able to be there with Adam and his friends. I continue to follow his journey and blog. His grief and sense of loss is so sad. Being surrounded by his family and friends certainly must help ease some of it.
