Day 27: When it's too nice to stay indoors

Day 27: When it's too nice to stay indoors

Good morning Challengers.

Yesterday was the nicest day yet, was it not? Unless you hate beautiful sunny days, or live in Vancouver.

It was so nice out yesterday, I saw people playing tennis at the Driving Park and one of them was wearing shorts.

Bobby and I had a lovely 2 hour walk, and I even revisited one of my many childhood creekbed playgrounds. Bobby wasn't as impressed as me but I enjoyed the nostalgia. Sadly the water level is still a bit high to really take a good hike unless your  wearing your Wellies. (which I wasn't) spencer creek dundas

I had a good laugh at the park, when a little 2 year old wanted to play in the melted skating rink, and the mom said, "no, no, I don't want you to get wet!" and I thought, "Really! Good luck with that!" and made a note to design a line of rain gear for a spring line. 

Being back in my old stomping grounds, really makes me want to show Robyn and Bobby all my favourite hiking spots. I think tomorrow, we'll go for a big hike on the mountain before the weather turns colder (and I use that term loosely)

Tell you all about it tomorrow,

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
