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

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.

Good For You Momma
Good For You Momma

 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.
