This week my friend, author Sheryl Browne, invited me across the pond (only *virtually* unfortunately) to chat with her about where I live and where I fantasize about living! I took a welcome break from *revision world* where I’m still hunkered down but making progress.
Sheryl has been running a series about our home towns with some of the authors in our LOVEAHAPPYENDING.COM literary group. It’s great fun to learn more about each other although those of you that know me will not be the least surprised at my answers.
Here’s a bit of the post and if you click right here you can visit Sheryl’s website to read the rest and leave a comment. Take a few minutes to check out her hilarious and entertaining novels. There’s never a dull moment in her stories!
“With our children grown, we now live in a condo overlooking Lake Ontario with hiking and biking trails outside our door and a fabulous Italian restaurant just a few minutes’ walk away.
An easy 15-minute drive takes us to the heart of the downtown area and just a little longer gets us to Pearson International Airport. Public transport is readily available and, like most cities, Toronto is dotted with delightful neighbourhoods that have their own distinct character.
This is part of the view as we bike or walk along the lake. From time to time we bike right downtown in just 45 minutes.
So why would I ever want to leave? Um … well …I do have a confession to make. Hmm – I believe your next questions covers this subject.
SB: My next question is: Do you like to travel? Where is your favourite place in the world and why? I think I can see you do, Patricia. And I can definitely see why.”
Where is your corner of the world and what do you like best about it? If you could live elsewhere, where would you choose?
Nicky Wells says
It’s a fabulous feature, and you make me want to move to Toronto AND Antibes. XX
It looks very nice there. We have a beautiful country.
You are so right although you definitely have the edge on beauty out your way!
David N. Walker says
I’m sure I’d enjoy Toronto in the summer, but in the winter? . . .
You definitely have a point there, David. I didn’t mention we spend most of the winter in Florida, like a lot of other Canadians … shhhhh!

Jut left you a comment across the pond! 😉
Sheryl Browne says
Thank you for allowing us a peek into your beautiful corner of the world, Patricia (along with the little bit you’ve claimed your own in the south of France). I have to admit, I am sooo cold today (here in the UK), I can most definitely see the attraction of winter in Florida, too! 🙂 xx
Sheryl, it was such fun to visit with you. Florida is a great place to spend the winter but just doesn’t have the history and beauty of the south of France. The thing is, it’s a lot easier to get to from Toronto!

Beautiful pictures, Patricia. It’s always so much fun when we get to share the places we love with others. BTW – I left you an award over on my blog.
Thanks, both for your comments and the award. I am honoured to be included in your list of bloggers for the Booker Award but am going to have to decline right now. I’ve made a note to get back to you about it once my editing work is finished. It’s all I can do to find time to breathe at the moment but I greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness and hope you understand.
