Back to Toronto, the gorgeous ViaVai and staying at the Hilton Toronto… a bluejays game and the great views of Downtown Toronto from Broadview Avenue…

And of course only an hour or so from Toronto and you’re surrounded by vineyards and wineries around the Beamsville Bench, Twenty Valley and Niagara on the Lake…

That’s all for July… nice things coming in August, Afternoon tea (at The Heritage and House), more from Toronto as we return this month, a couple of lunches and all the usual goings on over on Twitter and Facebook (and bear with me as I try to figure our Snapchat!).
