Getting out into the lanes and alleys in my neighbourhood. They are the plateau's great secret. Many are completely car free. Some not wide enough for a car. Some are cracked, filled with holes. We don't have the racoon problem Toronto has. Not yet. That seems to be happening on the mountain though, and so no doubt the racoons will migrate down...but for now the alleys are left to children and cats largely. This alley is north of Laurier and east of parc Laurier.
