Skating at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto...

You know winter is coming when the outdoor skating rinks have opened for the season. One of my favourites to go to is Nathan Phillips Square. I just love the lights at Christmas time, just adds that extra beauty to skating around the rink.

Also love the TORONTO sign from the PAN AM Games, it is amazing how many people have taken a selfie or picture in front of it. It is a great addition to the area.
