Toronto Island Ferry, Attraction from History

October 14, 2009 at 5:56 am (Uncategorized)

The Toronto islands were first accessed in 1833, when a ferry boat ‘Sir John of the peninsula’ started taking visitors from the mainland to the Toronto islands which was across the bay. ‘The Toronto’ which belonged to George Heathcote was the first steam Toronto island ferry that was commissioned in 1835. It was in service till 1851.

Two brothers who were the co-owners of a hotel on the island which was called ‘The Peninsula Hotel’ started bringing passengers across to the island in their horse powered boat called ‘The Peninsula Packet’. Horse powered boats were run by horses which were made to run on a treadmill which then moved gears and propelled the boat. Fascinating isn’t it?!

‘The princess of Wales’ another Toronto island ferry undertook its maiden voyage in 1865 and served for the next 18 years. It was succeeded by ‘The Luella’ in 1882 which was at that time considered the fastest ferry to go across the bay. It could carry 122 people and was in service till 1934.

Monopoly started in about 1892 when John Doty Engine and Ferry company purchased Turner Ferry Company which then merged into one company with A.J. Timon’s island Ferry Company in order to form the Toronto Ferry Company. After this merger, there were many ferries that were pressed into service and then retired for the Toronto island ferry service.

The Trillium, named on the official flower of the region was Ontario was commissioned in 1910 and it was used until the late 1960’s when it was towed away for storage to be used only in am emergency. This boat has paddle wheels that were to its side and it was also equipped with decks for observation. Eventually the City of Toronto bought out the Toronto Ferry company and handed the ships and rights to Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). This was the municipal body that ran the transit systems in the mainland.

By mid 20th century there were many diesel powered boats that started replacing the other ones and subsequently the authority of managing the Toronto Island ferry service was passed on to Metro Toronto Culture and Parks. At the same time, the ferry ‘Trillium’ was also restored and pressed into service in 1967 in its original appearance of 1910.

The Toronto Ferry Service changed hands again for the last time when its ownership and authority were transferred from the Toronto City’s department of Parks and recreations which in 2005 came to be known as Toronto’s Parks, forestry and recreation department.

With such a colorful history behind it, its no surprise people love to take rides on the Toronto Island ferry to experience and be part of history.

Portugal Holidays Paradise

October 4, 2009 at 5:54 am (Uncategorized)

Do you like the beach and would love to hit the waves for some water sports? Do you just want to relax and work on your tan? Do you have a family and want to experience a great culture but still want to be by the sea? Well, my friend, if you are looking for the best place to be during your Portugal Holidays, or any holiday for that matter, then Algarve is waiting for you!

Algarve is located on the southern side of Portugal, and is the perfect choice for anyone, because it is literally designed for tourists and thrives on tourist attention. Now, when you are in Algarve, the funny thing is, that it’s not all that crowded, and in fact, since there are a multitude of resorts, hotels, beaches and theme parks, this means that there is something for everyone, and that also means it will never be “crowded” like Disney Land, or any other “hot” vacation spot, like Hawaii.

In fact, Algarve has quickly beat out other popular vacation destinations, just like Hawaii, and let me tell you why. You see, the climate in southern Portugal is perfect for holidays, because it generally ranges from 15 to 28 (°C), and that makes it neither too hot nor too cold.

When you choose an accommodation in Algarve, you will find that most are centralized around the beaches, but of course if you want one that is not, you can try renting a villa if you have a family. The hotels, however, are a little bit of a different ball game as they can cater to tight shoestring budgets, as well as the more luxurious hotels which are luxurious, but of course it depends on your price range.

However, if you really want to experience Algarve, you would be best trying to get a villa, apartment or resort, because you can get a hotel in literally every country, whereas a villa or resort is more exclusive to the country, and of course the experience itself for your Portugal holidays.

Faro is the beautiful capital of Algarve, and you will easily find plenty to see and do there, especially when it comes to the historic architecture. The highlight of Faro is the Nossa Senhora do Carmo church which houses the regions most eminent religious icons.

If you are more adventurous or have children, the sand stoned west coast is one of the best places to visit, as there are many natural grottos, caves, and other unique landscapes for you to explore. The colors are also absolutely breath taking, and if you are visiting during the late afternoon, you can watch the colors change with the sun set, it’s quite a unique experience!

Family attractions and other attractions are available during your Portugal holidays, and the most common of these are the Zoos. There is the Zoo Marine and the Lagos Zoo, however the best one is the Zoo Marine, as it is both a water park and a marine zoo. You can also find lions and dolphins within this zoo.

The Algarve is only about 3-4 hours from Lisbon (the capital of Portugal), and if you want to go there, you can consider spending a day in Lisbon going there by train. If you do decide to take a train ride from Algarve, you will most definitely see some of the most beautiful scenery of hills and valleys. But, even if you do not visit Lisbon, you most definitely will find Algarve to be one of the finest destinations to choose for your Portugal holidays.
