Georgette and Michael are leading the daytime walk on October 3rd:
Unfortunately due to restrictions through Kelby and the WWPW website, this walk at this time is not actually a WWPW. We have been informed that until the Rouge Park walk and the Nuit Blanche night walk are full, we cannot have another registered walk. But that doesn’t stop us from having our usual first Saturday of the month jaunt! 😀
We’ll be starting at 10am at Queen’s Quay West at Dan Leckie Way and meandering north up and then westward. We will pass by Fort York as well as the Roger’s Centre and the Steamwhistle Brewery/Round House. We will move up to Front and over towards St. Lawrence Market where folks will be able to decide on what they would like for lunch from all the options there.
After lunch we will be sure to hit the underpasses that have some wonderful artwork by several local graffiti artists. And of course, there will be lots more to see in between. The ending will be at Cherry Street and Villiers Street at Keating Channel Pub.
Feel free to come and go as you please. If you need to contact the walk leaders, please contact Michael at (416)258-6229 or co-herder Georgette at (416)602-4233.
Final map still going through the tweaking in the upcoming weekend so stay tuned!
The hashtag will be “TOPW:QQCS” for this walk.
And for those so inclined and still want more walking and shooting, you can also check out Caroline’s Nuit Blanche walk.
Hope to see you out folks!

Caroline is leading Sunday’s walk at Glen Haffy Conservation Area:
Meet in the parking lot at Glen Haffy at 10:30 am or see below if you would like a ride. Please contact people driving to see if they have space in their cars.
“Located at the crossroads of the Niagara Escarpment and the Oak Ridges Moraine, Glen Haffy Conservation Area has dramatic hills and mature forests with breathtaking views. It’s also home to a fish hatchery that raises thousands of rainbow trout, which half are released into its fishing ponds.”
Map is here: http://thehillsofheadwaters.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2014/07/TRCA-Glen-Haffy-Park-Map1.pdf
Address for GPS is 19245 Airport Rd, Caledon East, ON L7K 2K4, Canada
POST WALK There is a pub just south of the conservation area… kind of up to people driving if they want to wait to get back into the city before they have a beer though
There’s also a burger shack and a coffee shop selling sandwiches and bagels along the route and a store of sorts in the conservation area with snacks, also flush toilets
Might be best to bring snacks, bagel or sandwich.
Entrance is $6.50 per person.
RIDES Please contact people driving to see if they have space in their cars. York Mills at 9:30 am

Dom is leading Saturday’s walk at Black Creek Pioneer Village:
Meeting 1000 hrs. at the Entrance.
There is an unique festival happening at the village with all the goodies (Brewery’s and Food Trucks). Let us try and soak up some of the culture and enjoy the outdoors. The idea is to go around and take photos of the re-enacted bygone era. There is a good chance of Thunder and rain and chances are there would be shelters close at hand if it comes pouring down. The village opens up at 1000 hrs., and closes around 1630 hrs. If people are willing to stay back then The village is connected by TTC (Please note that there is a 12 minute walk from where the TTC leaves you at it’s last stop).
Weather shows ‘Thunder Storm’, please bring your rain gear
