Dresden Socks and Anniversary Rerun

I finished the second Dresden sock on the GO train yesterday.
We had spent the day celebrating our wedding anniversary in The Big City in the Distillery District and dropped into the St. Lawrence Market to pick up some bagels at St. Urbain and lappi cheese at Alex Cheese Farms. We also picked up butter chicken biryani at Tamarind in the food court at Brookstone (formerly BCE Place) to take home for our anniversary supper.

It was a beautiful, warm, breezy, sunny day - just perfect for the 2km walk each way. Our favourite route is to walk along Front St. to the St. Lawrence Market then go south the one block to the Esplanade. There's parkland all along the Esplanade - grass, shade trees, playgrounds, etc.
We ate lunch at the Brick Street Bakery - hand-crafted gourmet sandwiches. We then poked around the various shops and galleries.

One of my favourite galleries is CubeWorks.
There are several large pieces made of Rubik's cubes.Other 'cube' art uses dice.
These mesh forms cast an interesting shadow when lit properly.
This is the second year we've done this on our anniversary. I think we can now consider it a tradition. ♥
