Good morning Challengers.
Last night I poled everyone in my house on what their favourite winter outdoor activities are; here are their answers:
Thom: go play shinny, go for a skate
Bobby: skiing and tobogganing
Robyn: I like to go walking and I like to go skating.
Me: hockey and walking with my friends
Robyn and her boyfriend are great hikers, and often on Alex's day off they go for a long hike. Last week they rented bikes and biked the Tommy Thompson trail (which is at the bottom of Leslie street)
In fact Tommy Thompson Park is known as Toronto's Urban Wilderness. Here's a link to their website which will surprise you with all the amazing things going on.
There are amazing hidden gems all over this great city, and this time in the challenge we're going to share a few of them.
I have an extra challenge for you today: Over then next week, pick a place you always thought would be nice to go, and make a plan to go there. As an example, I always wanted to skate on the Bentway, so last year I called up my friend, and we met up for coffee, and then bussed down Spadina and skated for the afternoon. Where have you thought would be nice to check out, but never got around to doing? Spend some time today and over the week and make a plan.
Today's photo challenge: Take a picture of your front door. Hint: you'll have to be outdoors to do it
Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day

Even though February was longer than usual this year, it felt like it went by faster, maybe it was the warm weather, with yesterday being the coldest day we had all month. Maybe just the busyness of it, maybe my kids are bigger now, I'm not struggling being shut indoors with Littles. Whichever it was I hope the challenge helped you get through the month too.
Until next year Challengers...have an outdoorsy day.
