The fire rescue boat, William Lyon MacKenzie, shows off its technique. It was built in 1964 for marine fire fighting as well as ice breaking and named after the first mayor of Toronto.

  4. Hi Lesley…Genie from Climbing the Digital Mountain here. Thanks for stopping by to see me. I must tell you it kills me to see the water do in the sand castles. The guys and the kids work ALL DAY long just for it to go bye-bye before morning. This year we were lucky and there would always be a little bit left for us to see when we got up. Another fun thing is when the water starts dinging it, we let the children stomp around on it..they really love that. About your fire boat. I have never seen one of those in action. Guess we have both seen something new and different today.


  5. Have never seen a fire boat in real action. You’ve just captured this amazingly. I love it!

  6. I never seen like a fire boat in action too. This is cool. Great photo.
