Welcome back, winter…
About last week:
Three of us set out for points north. North of St. Clair, that is. The group reduced in size for the actual Cedarvale Ravine trek. And time was flying by, so we kept the visit short. Didn’t manage to walk the full length of the park, but will do that another day. Nice to see all the dog walkers enjoying the treed pathway. It would be good to visit this ravine in summer or fall, to see the changes in foliage.
It was a great day to be out in the morning… and we walked 13.6 kilometres. Excellent!
This Sunday, February 14, 2016:
Happy Valentine’s Day! What better way to celebrate than to meet at the Y at 9:00 a.m.?
We’ll walk east to see some interesting buildings and note the changing skyline. Then, we may attend a listening and learning opportunity, and show support for families of missing and murdered Indigenous women. Elder Wanda Whitebird will lead the Strawberry Ceremony at Police Headquarters. Thanks to Sally, who suggested that some of us might like to share this event. It starts at 12:30.
And here’s another Megathon reminder, for all who’d like to participate in the Y’s annual fundraiser challenge: Sign up online – just search WestWalking and click JOIN. Or continue to use your past presence, on the My Megathon site. Either way, feel free to seek a few pledges, or donate a little bit instead, if you prefer. Then, let me know that you’ll join us for the last leg of our walk! We’d love your company, on Saturday, March 5. The time is 1:00 – 3:00 p.m., upstairs on the West End Y’s lovely indoor track. Several of us already plan to walk the final 10k of our “Bracebridge or Bust!” 200 kilometer challenge together. We’re almost there.
More winter weather! We had several potential plans for next week, but Winter Stations will be our destination. We may not see as much snow as we did last year, but weather-be-damned: who doesn’t want to visit a beach in February? That will be a long morning, requiring transit fare and, I predict, a little brunch budget. We’ll take two different streetcars, for an interesting look at the city. See you then!

Welcome. You really should walk with us! See you in the morning!
