Do you have any favourite neighbourhoods in your town? The ones that you dream of living in because they are absolutely picture perfect? I do! There’s this one neighbourhood I often like to bike or walk thru on a bright summer day. I enjoy imagining a home there. This sweet pink one with the little dormers would suit me just fine. I actually think it might be my favourite.
On this particular tree-lined street the gardens are always green and everyone drives a vintage car. Well now, Boomdee would DEFINITELY love to live here.
Sometimes there’s a kitty in the window of that blue house. Oooh, there he is! I say ‘he’ because ‘he’ reminds me of another sweet boy named ‘KT’ 😉
If I’m feeling really energetic, I’ll walk across The High Level Bridge for a coffee at the diner, not too far away. It’s a bit of a hike, but good exercise too.
Did you know there used to be trains going over the bridge? Since the bridge is over 100 years old we don’t see that anymore. They’re probably still buzzing thru the Alberta prairies I should think.
Time permitting, I always like to stop at the Alberta Legislative Grounds on the way back. The park and fountains are always such a treat on a hot day.
Speaking of treats on a hot day, there seems to be a lot of people at the pool too. Looks like that one gal is wearing her bathing knickers too short again. She actually looks kind of familiar………..Betsy? Is that you getting scolded? 😉
I almost always forget about the time. But that’s ok, I can hop on the street car and be home in a jiff. It stops not far from St Joachims Church, very close to home.
Of course the end to a perfect summer day would be a quick stop at the Candy Factory. I’d probably buy Red Twizzler’s, Salt Water Toffee and an Eatmore Bar. I can almost taste all that sugary goodness…….mmmmmmm!
But just not today 😦
Are you experiencing summer
