We were just up the road from the St Lawrence Market so we stopped in for something sweet. The Key Lime tarts (bottom shelf) came highly recommended by the waiter at the pub were we had lunch. R wanted to buy some fruit as well and while he made his choices I tried my first fresh fig from Argentina....delicious!
And thanks to Renata's suggestion in response to my post about visiting second-hand bookshops in Toronto last weekend, we stopped at Eliot's on Yonge Street. To my sheer delight there were creaky floors, creaky steps and a sliding ladder! It did make a very unfeminine 'thunk' whenever I stepped on it causing R to shout out a couple of times from the row over 'Is that you going up again?' With copies of On the Side of the Angels by Betty Miller (VMC) and The Collected Stories of Elizabeth Bowen under my arm it was time to head back home for some playtime with Deacon. Perhaps we could skip dinner and go straight to dessert!
