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.

Everyone put on your mittens, hats... even scarves.Then go outside.Robyn

Good Day Challengers.
Wow! Somehow February started without me really noticing and here we are at February 7 and for the first time in over 10 years, I don't have the challenge up and running. To be fair I was hit hard my the flu last week, but I'm here now and ready to be challenging :)
I've reached out to other outdoorsy people to share some of their winter insights, so I'm excited to see what outdoorsy shenanigans we can get up to this year.

Day 30: goodbye until next year
Day 30: goodbye until next year

Over the years this challenge has gotten me out the door more times than I can count-and I’ve always. Yes always, felt better for it because to quote my good outdoorsy friend Renee. Getting out the door is the hardest part. ( I may be paraphrasing
