Yonge Street


When driving further South on Yonge Street, Aurora, Ontario; away from the Wellington Street intersection, the street views change. In the view there are mostly individual commercial old Auroran houses. Last weekend, while travelling to Richmond Hill, I was amazed how big the icicles on those building were getting.  But then I switched to look out …

We took our last drive of 2017 a few days before New Year’s day through some streets of Aurora. Surprisingly, we found ourselves driving through a patch of falling snow when on Wellington Street East and then on Yonge Street heading North. When we reached St. John’s Sideroad all that snow excitement disappeared in a …

I had been eyeing to visit St. Andrew’s College (SAC) (Town of Aurora, Ontario, Canada) for a long time now. I was just curious to see this hidden facility that I had driven by so many times on Yonge Street in Aurora.

I am concerned. The latest news with regards to the one-way trip to Mars in 2024 caught my attention, ”Mars One: 6 Canadians make short list for 1-way trip to Mars.” Honestly, I think that is more like a suicide mission but then who knows. As a human race we have made extraordinary technological advances …

Santa Under the Stars Parade 2014 took place on November 22nd, 2014. When there is a bad weather all week long then the chances are that warm weather is coming. In Aurora, we had ups and downs in November but most of all we can only count blessings, like November 11th Memorial Day and November …

There are a few interesting facts about the Aurora Street Festival. First, you are free to walk in the middle of Yonge Street for about six hours. However, you could do that also if you were part of the Canada Day parade or Santa Under the Stars parade. Second, the Aurora Street Festival is the biggest festival …

Peter Cameron’s pictures from 2004 of the St. Johns Sideroad reconstruction project certainly bring back memories. What was once a two lane, non illuminated, country road is now a four lane road with a major railway crossing, a spectacular McKenzie Marsh boardwalk on the North side of St. John’s Sideroad, and a wonderful Atkinson Wetland …
