Pet Peeves and More Fall Colours

I will now show you my pet peeve about Kingston…

That boxy hotel over there?   Blow it up.  It’s a desecration of the waterfront.

They do have a walkway around it at least, but it is pretty darned ugly too.  There could be murals, plant pots, more benches.

Next door, there is a nice, wide, open walkway, but still no plants, a bare wall and one measly bench.

A lot of people don’t like what the city did with “Block D”, but I like the park area near the water.  This is what the whole downtown waterfront should look like (leaving the buildings out of it for the moment), but who asked me?

Anyway, enough of that, let’s go back a bit…

No more music, good food and fun on the city’s only waterfront patio, at the Holiday Inn–for the next few months anyway.

City Hall, looking fabulous as ever.

Looking up Johnson Street.

Empire Life, I think.  All the chimneys caught me eye.

Two shots of the little park at the old Kingston Drydock, between Gore and Lower Union Streets.  For those who aren’t aware, the Marine Museum has moved from this location.

More from the same bike ride tomorrow.
