城市沙滩 Urban Beach

Toronto Urban Beach

有一天到多伦多市南部的Lake Ontario沿岸走走。

看到了这所谓的城市沙滩觉得很奇怪又好玩。

这长长的人造沙滩建在Lake Ontario 旁, 去年六月正式开放给公众。

这沙滩,虽有点怪,没海浪,也没得下水玩或游泳,但有沙,又有湖景,加上金黄色的太阳伞,还是特别有味道。

穿上性感泳衣,躺在沙上来个太阳浴,或带小孩来玩玩泥沙的游戏,或来沿沙滩走走吹吹 ‘湖风’,和其他沙滩又有什么不同呢?

也同样是一个悠闲平静的夏季下午。

During my leisurely walk along the waterfront, I was surprised to see a ‘beach’.

It is literally like a giant long sandbox along the water edge that is filled with sands and many tall yellow umbrellas.

I then realised it is a new waterfront public space project that was opened June 2007.

Well, it looks a little strange and awkward that a ‘beach’ that has no swimming and no waves. However, the good news is, you do have lots of sands, plus a lake view, with the umbrellas and chairs.

As you can see, many people enjoy lying on the sands for a sunbath , or bringing their children for some sand games, or just simply walk along the ‘beach’ and enjoy the refreshing lake breezes. So, what’s the real difference and why not?

And, it is equally a beautiful, lazy and leisurely summer afternoon.
