Day 16: Let the puddle jumping begin

Day 16: Let the puddle jumping begin

If you are in Toronto, and you went outdoors today, you probably saw at least one very happy toddler. And that toddler was probably very happy because they were splashing along in some of the huge puddles that were everywhere today. 
Even Bobby at 12 relished our walk to the chocolate shop, swishing through puddles, and schlepping through very soft snowbanks.

One not so quite fun part of all this puddling is when a car drives by and ... you know... yeah, no fun at all. Luckily that didn't happen to me, but only because Robyn alerted me to the impending soaking I was about to get, as a car drove through a puddle. Thanks Robyn.

Even though it was so warm today, I still didn't go out until 4:30 when Bobby and I were going to go play a couple board games at Coco's Chocolates. Sadly it was closed, but we did end up checking out a new organic bakery just a bit further south, and Bobby gives their chocolate croissants a thumbs up.

Not too inspiring other than it's warm, it's sunny, let's get outdoors.

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 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.
