Day 24: And then it all balances out

Day 24: And then it all balances out

Challengers! We have almost made it through February. It is almost March. In fact, March is seven sleeps away. (It's a leap year, just in case you forgot). 
Yesterday when I got home from my Sunday morning walk with Cathy, I received an email that the High Park outdoor rink was closed, and so I made Rob come for a second walk with me because I thought I wasn't going to play hockey.

Then, they opened the rink, so after a non-outdoorsy day Saturday, I had triple outdoor time Sunday-balancing it all out in the end. 

The thought I had while walking along the beach with Rob was everyone should get themselves to a beach. It's really soothing, and restorative to walk along the water's edge, so if you can, while the challenge is still on, see if you can't get yourself to some water.

Today, we are back at Snow Valley, only a few ski dates left, meaning we're going to need to find some summer sports for ourselves, please share yours, we're open to all suggestions. Currently it's rollerblading, and biking, but there must be other. 

I love this picture and I knew as soon as I took it, it would be today's photo prompt: something smooth and rough.

Until tomorrow-have an outdoorsy day.

I would like to talk about something I witnessed in town over the last several weeks. As I mentioned previously, we had a Polar Vortex. It was too cold to walk to the grocery store, let alone just sit outside all day. Which is what a member of this town had been doing for months.

My Winter Walks
My Winter Walks

I am just back from a walk along the country road where I live, a road bordered by fields and stands of trees. My intention was to get some exercise, which meant covering some distance at a reasonable pace. My intention is important, as it affects many other choices: type of shoes, clothing, walking poles, water, binoculars, camera etc.

 After stopping for the dogs to poop and stopping to change Jett’s diaper (twice) we were off!! We walked through a sunny meadow, climbed up the frozen cascades and returned via a side trail that skirted the riverbank. Bliss.
