|Happy little summer snowman|
Sarah didn't head down into the valley today as she did on previous perambulations, opting instead to walk down to the Danforth and poke around there for a while. On the way she passed the local rink, still operating for the figure skaters and summer hockey players, and she stopped to make me this miniature snowman out of the ice left outside by the Zamboni®. Poor Sarah might have been better served by then either eating him or stuffing him down the back of her shirt to keep cool.
From the rink she proceeded to Danforth Avenue and then west a little past Woodbine to East Lynn Park, where there is a Farmer's Market every Thursday evening from June until the end of October. For the past three weeks, the park has also been home to the Art of the Danforth festival, which ended today. I've been there in past years during the outdoor art festival and it has been quite bustling; for whatever reason, judging from Sarah's pictures, it was pretty quiet there today as it came to a close for another year.
Here are some of her best shots of the winding-down of the festival:

|"Activated Window" installation|
In one of the shops on Danforth Avenue near the park there was another installation, this one entitled "Activated Window". Sarah explained to me that the idea was to wave your hands in front of this mirrored window and music would start to play. She said that at the end of the musical "performance" there was a recorded message, but unfortunately she couldn't make out what it was saying.
And while she was puttering around on the Danforth, Sarah spotted this:
Yeah. We have no idea what it means, either.
Thanks, once again, to my sweetie for her keen eye while on her walk today, giving me something interesting to share with you on this sweltering Sunday afternoon. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
