An urban survivors guide to a winter state of mind. Its all good.

Bird-lovers looking for a blast know to migrate to the Spit, that accidental paradise where nature's in full flight year.


Bird-lovers looking for a blast know to migrate to the Spit, that accidental paradise where nature’s in full flight year round and the sky is so thick with flying creatures you can almost reach up and touch them.

Lift the fog from your mind under the wings of the Thurderbird arching over Humber Bay. Guaranteed to make your spirits soar. Watch for the walk of the green turtles, too.

When the long shadows cast by winter get you down, all you have to do is look up and breathe in the skyline for a little vitamin D distraction.

Beach the negativity at HTO, the waterfront sweet spot where nothing ever goes as planned.

When you need a little distance from the city-spun gloom, jump train tracks in the Don and go exploring for a different vantage point.

Drink in the wind, wide-open expanses and industrial-strength smells in the port on those gusty days made for soul-searching.
