West Queen West Neighbourhood Walk

Saturday's beautiful spring weather was the perfect opportunity for a stroll in one of my favourite neighbourhoods, "West Queen West". This section of Queen Street West runs from Bathurst Street to the edge of Trinity Bellwoods Park at Strachan Avenue. It was a pleasant way to spend a leisurely afternoon, browsing through the many wonderful boutiques & shops.
