Although you can find references to it on Wikipedia, Openwaterpedia, and Readtheplaque, you won't know from using Google Maps or Apple Maps that when you're at the end of Toronto's Leslie Street Spit, you're on Vicki Keith Point, named for the Canadian marathon swimmer who ended most of her crossings of Lake Ontario here. The view from the point has changed a lot in the 30 to 40 years since Keith made her crossings; in the foreground, the artificial point itself has been taken over by nature, while in the background, Toronto's skyline has done nothing but grow, grow, grow. At the same time, the painterly skies one afternoon recently could not have made for a better early Fall scene, captured by UrbanToronto Forum contributor shammyjammy.
