冬のトロント・アイランドフェリーで流氷? 体験を

WinterLakeOntario2014Fer

寒い寒い冬のトロント。気温は連日マイナスを記録する冷凍庫なみの寒さが続いています。例年と比べると、雪が降る日が多かったり、連続してマイナス10度以下になる日が多いと感じる日々ですが、おそらく今が寒さのピークではないでしょうか。特にこの時期トロントを訪れる旅行者の皆さんには、ぜひ以下のことをご留意下さい。

1)外出時には、厚手のコート、耳当てや帽子、手袋等暖かい格好でお出かけください。風が吹くと体感温度が下がる日も多い時期です。
2)とは言え、ショッピング・モールやレストラン、ホテルの部屋等に入ると20度前後の空調が効いて大変暖かいので、汗をかかないよう脱ぎ着が簡単にできることも大事です。
3)降った雪が根雪になったり、日中に溶け出して夜間に凍って滑りやすくなります。凍結防止に特別な塩を道路に撒き靴が真っ白になるくらいになりますので、冬用の滑り止めのあるブーツや靴を履くことがベストです。

さて、例年になく寒い冬。通常オンタリオ湖は岸側に氷が張る程度ですが、今年は湖畔からトロント・アイランドまで一面が凍る珍しい年となっています。凍ったオンタリオ湖はクイーンズ・キーなど湖畔のボードウォークなどから眺めることができるのですが、今回は冬季に唯一運行している「ワード・アイランド(Ward’s Island)」行きのフェリーに乗り、対岸に渡ってみました。

小型フェリーボートの乗船時間は約15分。ゴツンゴツンと流氷のようになった湖上の氷をかき分けて進む体験は、ちょっとしたアドベンチャー気分。実はこのフェリーはアイランドに住むひとびとの大切な交通手段として使われているもので、買い物帰りに自転車の荷台に食料品等を積んでいる主婦が利用したり、工事用のクルマが乗り込んできたりと、夏期とは一風違った雰囲気を味わえます。

アイランドでは帰りのフェリーまで1時間ありますので、しっかりとした防寒具でいらしてください。湖上は凍っていますが、もちろん歩行禁止。滑りやすいので湖畔にあまり近づき過ぎないよう充分な注意が必要です。ダウンタウンの美しい風景や湖畔で戯れるカナダ雁や水鳥たちを眺めながら、ひとときを過ごしてみてはいかがでしょう?

写真はトロント観光局公式日本語Facebookでもご紹介しています。

フェリーはTTC(トロント市交通局)のユニオン駅からバスの509番に乗り最初の停留所ハーバーフロント/トロント・フェリーターミナル下車、真っすぐ南に下って湖に突き当たるとそこがフェリー乗り場になります。チケットは往復7ドル(大人)で、行きに払うと乗船時にレシートは回収され、復路ではチケットなしで乗船できます。スケジュールは午前6時半(日曜祝日は午前7時半)〜午後11時まで、約1時間おきに運行されています。

フェリーのスケジュールなど詳細は、こちらから

    First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior
    to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts
    out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend
    to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Thanks!
