Gotta love September in Toronto

As a rule, I don’t tend to leave my city during the month of September.  There are just so many things to enjoy. First, there’s the weather. It’s still warm and sunny, but the oppressive heat and humidity of the summer is on its way out. The evenings are cooler and start to hint that I might need to carry a sweater. Sunsets and sunrises are even more lovely than usual – just check out the golden-pink skies at Pape & Danforth:

Second, there is TIFF, our annual film festival. I volunteer each year, and despite the fact that it’s exhausting, and I have to wear a bright orange, ill-fitting volunteer t-shirt, it’s a fun and rewarding thing to do. I hear buzz about all the movies; I meet people from all over the world; and I get to watch movies.

Also in September, I help out at a charity golf tournament. Since I’m not a golfer, I rarely get the chance to hang out on a lovely course, soaking up the outdoors. Yesterday’s tournament – at Blue Springs Golf Club – was sunny and perfect. Just look at that course:

September is a cornucopia of delights – and the best part of fall has yet to arrive: crisp mornings, bright blue skies, fresh picked apples and all those gorgeous leaves turning colour. Can’t wait!
