A walker’s weekend

Just picture this!
But first, about last week:

 

I took several walks last weekend. How about you? Here’s a bit about three of my wanders. Including our great WestWalking downtown walk!

First, on Saturday, I shared a wonderful Elora Gorge trip with Y-friends Meg and Kathy. Thanks, you two! The day began with pouring rain, but our bus-trip was warm, dry, and relaxed and our hike around the gorge, into it, and into the town of Elora made a perfect fall day.

Then, Sunday’s morning walk around the St. Lawrence Market area turned out to be ideal. We explored the antique market, wandered and saw interesting buildings, St. James Church and garden, a few historical locations, and then headed up Church Street and discovered far more murals than predicted!! (Haha – you know I can’t resist, but it wasn’t intentional, I swear.) And an excellent view of the downtown skyline.

After a relaxed Monday, and a great Thanksgiving dinner out with family, I took myself down to City Hall square for a last, late view of the two remaining Nuit Blanche installations. What a treat. I was sorry to have missed the full event, the previous weekend. This made up for it!

These are all things we shall do again. Yes, let’s!

THIS WEEK,
Sunday, October 16, 2016
:

Meet at the Y at 9:00, as usual. We’re walking downtown and back. We’ll visit the World Press Photo Exhibition, at Brookfield Place. This will be a return visit, because this exhibition definitely deserves an annual look. Please join us. The photos are always eye-opening.

COMING RIGHT UP:

 

Next week, we’ll attempt to find some fall colour right in our own neighbourhood. The week after that, brunch in High Park! Bundle up!

Please do feel free to bring a friend along to share our walks. We’ll see you soon.

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

Welcome. You really should walk with us!
See you Sunday!
