Okay, more boring stuff. I went a couple of miles out of my way to see 3 more of the 50 gems. I know a 10 mile evening commute is pretty trivial to some of you centurions, but it was windy, a bit hilly, stop and go traffic, and I had to carry my bike up and down about 4 flights of stairs to get over the railroad tracks, so I got at least a little extra exercise. I took the West Toronto Railpath (that's the Union-Pearson (downtown-airport) express train crossing Bloor St and a view of the path from above the tracks), and saw the Terracotta house and the "Everything is going up" sign, the last of which didn't seem like anything special to me. The sky got dark at that point so I zipped across what must be the last level crossing in Toronto (why isn't it on the list!) and onto one of my usual routes home. So I'm at what - 9 out of 50?
