Thanks To El Nino


Compared to the last few winters, we are getting in a lot more walks/hikes
this year.....thanks to El Nino!

When in the city, Point Pleasant Park is our favourite place because number 1...it allows dogs in 90% of the park and number 2 it has a series of varied trails from beginner to advanced.

The past couple of years we have been sticking to the beginner ones
 because that was all Ron could handle.
But not this year! He is setting a very good pace for Sophie and I
and we are getting back into aerobic/cardio-vascular shape once again.


As we turned a corner today at the top of an incline, 
I took this shot of what remains of a British fortress from the early 1800's.

    1. Thanks, Laura.
      And since El Nino comes around every 3-6 years, we will have to wait a bit for another winter like this.

  2. So happy to read about Ron's continued progress. I love that British fortress. I've lately been wondering (again) what would have happened had the "American Colonies" never taken up arms against the British. It seems to have worked out well for Canada, hasn't it?!?

    1. Well, with all due respect for your wonderful country, Mitchell, especially at the present time, it would be very interesting to imagine a calm and focused HUGE Canada today!! Who knows? I think the U.S. is in the process of evolving.....and having major 'growing pains' right now. Not that we in Canada don't need to evolve as well.

  4. This winter has been crazy. We only had one major snowfall in Edmonton that necessitated getting the snowplows out. Needless to say, the lack of snow has saved our city council millions of dollars this year.

    1. Right across the country, I guess, Debra! Yes, crazy indeed.

  5. A very unusual winter, Jim; quite mild around here. I hope the summer is not too hot and dry. I guess we'll have to wait and see. It's wonderful that Ron is doing so well with his health! That is great news.

    1. I am hoping for much the same for the summer, Martha......wouldn't mind the 'dry' as much as a humid one.
      Yes, Ron has come a long way these past two years thanks to patience and a good medical team for support.

  6. It does my heart good to hear how much better Ron is doing! I can't wait to hike anywhere with you three this summer! The picture of the old fortress is lovely, such soft lambent colors! Have a good one, my friend!

  7. This has been a pivotal year for Ron since we last saw you, Louise. He has worked very hard to get back to his old self. Yopu will see a difference for sure when we meet up again this summer. We are looking forward to seeing you and hiking the province!!!
