Monday Windows – March 1, 2021

thanks to Ludwig for hosting Monday Windows https://mondaywindow.wordpress.com/2021/03/01/monday-window-march-1-2021/

After doing a bit of shopping the other day I decided to drive down into Col. Sam Smith Park and go for a short of a walk. On my way back to the car I passed the outdoor skating rink. Even though we’ve experienced some pretty mild temperatures the rink was still operational because of the pipes under the ice.

In Toronto if you want to skate in one of the city ice rinks you have to book a time so that the area doesn’t become overwhelmed with too many people. A booth is set up outside the old Power Plant where you can sign in. The building itself is closed now during COVID but is used as a community centre.

A Photo a Week Challenge – Something New

….first time I’ve been snowshoeing in the city with my daughter

It was a spectacular day. The sun was shining and the snow was still relatively fresh from yesterday’s snowfall. It was cold but there was little wind. The conditions were ideal for snowshoeing.

I have to say that this activity uses different muscles than mere walking or running. After two hours of traipsing through the snow we could really feel it in our hips.

Sunday Trees – Paused

….thanks to Becca Givens for hosting Sunday Trees https://beccagivens.wordpress.com/2021/01/03/sunday-trees-477/

Trees in the distance. Becca is taking a pause from posting a photo this week. I hope all is well. I don’t think she’s ever taken a break in over 8 years.
