    I'd go tubing. There's a river like that one near Cincinnati where people do tubing. It doesn't seem to be done around here despite plenty of rivers, marshes (probably why), ponds, lakes and reservoirs.

    I love the shot of the Manhattan skyline. Many years ago I was in almost the same location and took a photo of the old skyline with the Twin Towers. I can still remember being on Liberty Island and looking at the sprawling skyscrapers looming in front of me, right across the harbor.

    Great photo, man! You take the best pics of New York City's buildings.

    As do most. But doubling the price tag usually keeps that out of reach for most and hurricanes aren't a concern.

    Brie, thank you for rescuing those ducks. It absolutely disgusts me that people do this to animals.

    Leaving them i nbaoxes aside the road so they can get run over or can't get out and die? Assholes.

    Throwing them in trash cans and leaving them to die? Assholes.

    Murdering them because they can't keep them or don't want them anymore? Assholes.

    Buying them neck up and running them over with a lawn mower? Absolute assholes.


    Unfortunately, all those that weren't your example, are real examples.

    Love the yellow accent siding in contrasting pattern, very nice choice. Subtle but gives it a great pop.

    Casa Loma looks COOL! That's the museum, right? Did you go inside?

    Casa Loma is one of many museums I saw. :) (I also visited the CBC museum and the Ontario Science Centre; I was going to see the Royal Ontario Museum but I didn't have time :sigh: )

    I did go inside - probably took more pictures there than in anything else I saw in Toronto. It's a museum and tourist attraction now, but it was originally built as a home for Sir Henry Pellatt who was a very famous businessman and military officer a century ago. Linky
