As you have heard me complain about – a lot – this past winter was a loooong one. It started in October and ended about a week ago, when suddenly the leaves sprouted in the trees again and the temperatures jumped from the 40s to the 70s. Needless to say, everyone’s in a good mood. In fact, the weather is so nice that Travis and I rode in a rickshaw to dinner last weekend – something I swore I would never do.
Something else I swore I would never do here was ride a bike. But here we are (and I LOVE IT!).
But I digress. Today was a particularly lovely spring day because it is international Labour Day and we all had the day off. We started out at a loss for what to do with ourselves, but thankfully our good friends suggested that we meet at one of our favorite parks – Ritan Park – to explore. It was lovely.
We explored the “tunnels.”
Enjoyed lakeside snacks:
And took in the scenery . . .
. . . athletic competitions . . .
. . . music . . .
. . . and the bouncy castle!
Now, as we sit here enjoying our gin and tonics and open windows, we need you to keep your fingers crossed that the weather AND air quality stay as perfect as they’ve been – at least for a few more weeks!! Thank you!
