Exploring The Outdoors

I moved to Alberta 40 years ago in August with 500 dollars and 5 boxes. I knew no one who lived where I was about to go to start my teaching career,

I love this province and have happily chosen to make this my home. For the past while I have been exploring parks and places that I have never been to and today my friend Shivaun and I ventured out to Saskatoon Farm to start our day and what a glorious day it was.

There is so much to see as you wonder along in this beautiful space. Start your day with a homestyle breakfast and then explore and shop if you must.

After we spent the morning here we made our way out to beautiful Elbow Falls.

I have had many a picnic here when the kids were small. It will always be a special place that I love to go and sit by the water.

Then it was off to Bragg Creek for a little lunch and shopping. There weren’t many people in any of the shops, so I thoroughly loved browsing and eating outdoors on a patio. Today was amazing. I felt, yes I truly felt “normal” for the first time since Covid19. Being outdoors rejuvenates me and lifts my spirits. There are so many places to explore, but that will have to wait for the fall once I return to Alberta. My next venture Nova Scotia.

After I self isolate for 14 days I plan on exploring the Cape Breton outdoors. I look forward to exploring as many places to walk and stroll along beaches as I can. It’s good for the wellbeing and a lot of fun too.

So get out and explore the outdoors. Thanks to this period in time I am spending so much more time outdoors than in the past and for that I am grateful. Especially when I get to spend quality time with friends. Go ahead and enjoy the outdoors wherever you are.

  1. Seeing those lovely photos of Elbow Falls reminds me of places here in California that I haven’t seen recently. Looking forward to a time when I’m able to spend time in some of those lovely areas again. In the meantime, I’m continuing to enjoy these lovely walks and talks we seem to be so nicely pursuing thanks to your commitment to a year of writing with your friends and colleagues.
