Hey fearless leader liz Toronto wins a special prize for horrible traffic. We took your advice and stayed downtown. That was very good advice. Leaving was an awful kind of awful though. I didn't want to sit parked on the Gardiner for an hour so I stuck to the surface streets. I got off lake shore and went in to downtown past Richmond and eventually on bathurst back to lake shore. It took 3 or 4 cycles of each stop light to clear each stop light as I was headed north and west. Eventually we headed south to lake shore and it wasn't bad. This was 530 on a Sunday. Took 1 HR 10 minutes to reach the 401 and a decent traffic flow... which is about 3 miles. Then the border checkpoint took 45 minutes. My 5 hour trip home took 7.
Still Toronto was fun and the aquarium was fun as well. They need to add some performance stuff to it. That would make it even more fun.
