Today was a great day. I spent part of the day with my 12 year old son, so this is certainly a day to treasure. He's at the age where friends are preferred over me, so I'm holding on for dear life. We loaded our folding bikes into the car and drove to Ajax waterfront. We have a beautiful water frontage that stretches across Ajax www.townofajax.com/page2042.aspx, with a winding Waterfront Trail hugging Lake Ontario's shore line. We biked west into Pickering and ended up at the Millennium Square, which is at the bottom of Liverpool. www.cityofpickering.com/standard/lifestyle/waterfront/main.html.
Pickering has revamped their water frontage over the past few years, and here you'll find a marina, restaurants, ice-cream shop, tea-house, playground and lots of people out taking advantage of a beautiful summer day. We enjoyed a "simple pleasure" of ice-cream before we headed back through the Alex Robertson Park where beautiful Wooden Sculptures by artist Dorsey James are scattered throughout the park.
