Toronto Island: Day 2 and behind door number 1

 Today we spent the morning working on our drawings. Since the residency is fairly deserted over the weekend, CJ the resident cat demanded our attention and let us know he wanted out.

Taking his lead I peeped out our door to see freshly fallen snow. Not much, but it wasn't melting so it was below zero, yet again. Overcast, yet again. Windy and cold, yet again. 

 But out we went anyway. It's March. In Canada. We could be waiting another month for it to be warm and our residency ends at the end of next week so let's go.

 Walking in front of the studio and going around the corner we saw the Gibraltor Point Lighthouse across the street.




Moving closer I fell in love with its lipstick red door.

we explored along the sides and the back of the property and were pleased to know we are well protected on the island
