When traveling in a major city, we try to see as much as possible without using a car or sightseeing tours. For our current visit to Toronto, Ontario, that meant driving to the commuter train station and trying to find a parking space. Then, finding out that we needed to get there before 7:00 a.m. as most spaces were either Reserved or for Carpooling. For us, retired means NOT having to get up that early.
But, then we learned that IF we can find a carpooling space after 9:30 a.m. it's OK to use one, luckily, we were there at 9:45 a.m. and found (possibly) the last one.
Next, we ride the local trains — much to Grenville's delight (did you happen to know how much he likes trains?).
Which take us into the city of Toronto, where we learn to navigate the subway system — everyone is ALWAYS in a rush in the mornings and evenings — must have something to do with that thing called work, which we vaguely recall doing.
Sometimes, the subway doesn't go where we're going which meant we had to ride the streetcars. This was actually a treat as few cities still use these.
