Eastward trail to mural!

(Okay, so my titles aren’t always stellar!)

This Sunday, Dragon Boat! Pierogies!
But first, about last week:

The Kay Gardner Beltline Trail beckoned. If we walked it eastbound, we’d end up near the gigantic (eight storeys tall!), new cityscape mural by Phlegm, just west of Yonge and St. Clair. Smart.

I’ll keep the words to a minimum, here. It was a sunny day and we had a great morning. Just have a look at our excellent walk:

We’ll meet at the Y at 9:00. Depending on race results, the order of this walk may change, but… we have two destinations. The Roncesvalles Polish Festival. Why? Well, for the fun, the music, the pierogies! Enough said! But really, we enjoyed it last year, and it’s fun to walk down the street. The idea is just to enjoy that stroll without taking too much time, and end up at our second destination, the lake, to watch walking friend, Donna, guide her dragon boaters (TEAM TRANSPLANT!) to another great result. The races are fun to watch, and enthusiasm is high. Sunday’s weather will be perfect for some lakeside fun. If Donna’s team is racing early, we may go right to the lake, and walk home via Roncy. Either works! And you’ll be free to amend the plan. Leave whenever you need to, or meet us there, or partway there… Just let me know. We’re walking, but you may want to bring transit fare. And you may want a budget for a snack (though that won’t be anything formal).

(But only if you read this far!)

As mentioned last time, we haven’t done much in the way of Walking Club swag. But this happens to be good timing! The Y will treat you to a YMCA gym bag… if you come along on at least one of our September walks. Only three Sundays left to get in on this offer! Some already have (and may pick up their bags from me, this week). This is a great way to tote workout duds to the Y, or to bring lunch, blanket and frisbee on one of our picnics. (Several are in the works!) Show up for a September Sunday walk. It’s a FIRST WALK, FIRST SERVED offer… while supplies last. Limit, one per walker!


Please save the Last Sunday in September for The SPIT hike! It’s a serious challenge, for several reasons, and good fun! Details as it gets closer. Soon: Humber, Don (the river, not the other Don!), the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood. Our annual Thanksgiving picnic on the Island. Great walks, just ahead.

See you soon!

You’re just finding WestWalking for the first time?!

See you in the morning!
