015crOn Saturday I made my way through the Distillery District and along Cherry Street to Cherry Beach continuing along the Martin Goodman Trail and then heading over to Tommy Thompson Park. The park is an urban wilderness on a man-made peninsula and is a popular destination for birding, fishing, cycling and hiking activities. I’ve only been here once before, about 10 years ago. Today I was just out for a walk in another direction so I’ll save the lighthouse for another day, when I start earlier and bring water.

DSCN2367crI know of two Boxing Day traditions – shopping and walking. I’m about to need a new ink cartridge for my printer and I’m about to need a new battery for my food (soap) scale but I opted for a walk. Yep, enjoying life’s simple pleasures.DSCN2368cr2 What did you do for Boxing Day?

It was a beautiful April 1st and what better to do on a gorgeous day than go for a walk. Today I headed up the Speed River Trail, part of the Royal Recreation Trail, and followed it northeast to where it reaches Victoria Road. I was tempted to go all the way to Guelph Lake but decided to put it off for a day when I remember to bring a water bottle, and start earlier.  The main trail is fairly wide and popular with cyclists. Both it and the more naturalized route along the river is popular with walkers.

It was a beautiful sunny day today and I made my way over to the University of Guelph’s Arboretum. I needed a little revitalization and spending the afternoon outside amid nature is a great spirit lifter. It would have been nice to have my old snowshoes but boots were fine for the well-trodden paths. The grounds are serene and beautiful and there are signs of winter transitioning into spring.

I’m still exploring Guelph and today I ventured south for a walk in the woods. The Hanlon Creek Trail is part of the Royal Recreation Trail, a footpath which runs, more or less, throughout the city. I liked the trail, or rather the portion of it that I strolled along – very peaceful and just enough people passing by to make it feel neighbourly rather than isolated. A couple of signs mention the connection to the Monteverde Rainforest in Costa Rica. For instance, a bird calls this wooded area home for four months of the year and lives in Central America the rest of the year. Lucky bird!
