6 Months Later, Pt. 2

In the spirit of comparing how things have changed over the past half year, I thought I’d continue the theme, but this time, with a little trail construction.

June 16th:

And we’ve come a pretty long way since then, with the trail going out a good 300m more than before.

February 11th:

Yes. Quite the change, as the trail is now rounding the promontory made by the bluffs, and we can clearly see the beach of Bluffer’s Park, whereas we could only really see the tip before. The story is that the breakwater is to be connected up the the beachfront trail at Bluffer’s Park, so that it can form a single multi-use trail.

But what if we turn our gaze from westward to northward, and look at the bluffs? Why, we see this!

If you don’t see it already, there is a small dwelling leaning precariously off the bluff’s edge. Here’s a closeup:
Hello, Mrs. Van! Is Billy home?

This Meadowcliffe Drive building has actually been hanging off the bluff’s edge on  since early 2008 when a large chunk of bluff collapsed. This house once belonged to Billy Van,  the Toronto-born singer, actor and comedian. Huh.

You can see some better pictures of Billy Van’s house up-close here.
