Last Day of Summer – Sept. 20, 2021

…..enjoying a warm and sunny day at Marie Curtis Park

Today we experienced a nice warm summer day; the last one of the season. Normally this time of year the average temperature is about 20 degrees celsius but we hit 23 and people definitely took advantage of it.

When I arrived at the park school had just dismissed its students and I noticed several children were in the playground and splash pad. Cyclists, senior citizens and dog walkers were also enjoying this great weather.

Good Morning

….I went out early this morning for my walk before it got too hot

I’m glad that I got my walk in early because I don’t do well in the heat. I drove to the Farmers’ Market this afternoon and even that short trip exhausted me.

It was also suppose to rain but it’s now 6:30 and we still don’t have rain. I would love a good thunderstorm about now.

Water, Water Everywhere – June 27, 2021

thanks to Jez for hosting Water, Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2021/06/28/reflections-11-water-water-everywhere-85/

I never tire of walking through Col. Sam Smith Park and now that summer is officially here the paths and walkways are particularly busy with walkers, runners and cyclists. Sometimes I like to veer off onto the many beaches throughout the park and find a log to sit on and just enjoy the shoreline.
